The sands of this sleepy little community just south of Patrick Air Force Base, about 15 miles south of Cocoa Beach on Route A1A, are cradled between the balmy Atlantic Ocean and biologically diverse Indian River Lagoon. It's a popular spot for family vacations because of its slow pace and lack of crowds as well as its beachfront park with playground, five pavilions, and picnic facilities. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking; showers; toilets; water sports.
Best for: sunrise; surfing; swimming; walking.
