Are you lost?
Cocoa Beach Pier Ė Spend the day
Going on a family vacation? Do you only have a day for the beach? Spend the day at the Cocoa Beach Pier, it has everything you need for a fun filled day. When I go to Cocoa Beach with my family, we always spend one of our days here.
Thereís plenty to do here all day long, especially if you donít mind a nice beach walk and chillin in a chair..
Bikini Bars on the Cocoa Beach Pier
Sandbar Sports Grill & Bar Need a drink? This is a bar. The drinks are cheap, the front of the bar is open air to the parking lot for people watching. Unfortunately you canít see the beach, same problem with the porch at Captain Jís, but girls in a bikini still walk by.
Tiki Bar on Cocoa Beach Pier, have a drink, fish or watch the Dolphins. This Bikini bar is a long way out, 800 feet from shore.
The Boardwalk on Cocoa Beach Pier, stroll up from the beach onto the pier and grab a beer or frozen daiquiri. This is where I go for a late afternoon cocktail. Sit in the shade, have a drink and some munchies and watch some bikini beach volleyball, skim boarding and surfing. The crowd on the beach can get pretty interesting after a day of drinking.
Oh Shucks Seafood Bar, at the foot of the Cocoa Beach Pier and open on all four sides. Suck down some oysters and listen to the band.
Captain Jís, want to take a walk from the pier, walk south on the beach to Captain J's or the Sandbar Sports grill. It's less than a mile, don't forget a twenty. See Cocoa Beach for more details.
