Cocoa Beach is obsessed with surfing and has been called “the surfing capital of the east coast.” Our family was there last october. We were surprised how many surfers we saw riding the waves at that time of year. We stayed ten days and were able to swim in an unheated pool four of those days. Granted we’re Yankees and were coming from a much colder climate, but there were other people swimming in the hotel’s pool. So, we weren’t the only ones who found the water temperature to be just fine. My husband and children were able to swim in the ocean, something I chose to pass up. They swore the water wasn’t cold, but i dunno. Autumn in Cocoa Beach also means there’s going to be a mean volleyball game on the beach.
The shuttles to the tube station run every half hour. It takes about 10 minutes to get to the station, where they wait for 5 minutes for new passengers to bring back to the hotel. So, it’s basically a 15 minute cycle. If the shuttle isn’t there to pick you up, you can always call the front desk from the pay phones outside of the station. Just be careful of the homeless people milling about in the parking lot. We saw one get violent with a person. It’s kind of scary. Sort of like waiting outside of Jamaica Station at night.
