Eco-Adventures
on the Space Coast...

Cocoa Beach and the entire Space Coast of Florida is an outdoor enthusiast's dream come true. A place of spectacular natural resources, our area features rare beauty, sandy turtle nesting beaches, rich lagoon waters, and numerous nature parks providing outstanding opportunities for outdoor recreation, discovery or relaxation. While on the Space Coast, you can observe dolphins and the endangered Florida Manatee while taking a relaxing kayak tour through Cocoa Beach's beautiful Thousand Islands, view majestic cranes and wading birds while going on the Blackpoint Wildlife Drive at the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, or explore the amazing hammocks of mixed tropical and temperate vegetation while hiking through a fabulous Nature Trail. The possibilities are endless...

The Cocoa Beach area has one of the most diverse ecosystems in North America due to the rare combination of climates. We are exposed to a temperate climate to the north and a warm subtropical climate to the south, combining the habitat and environmental needs for a wide variety of animal life. In addition, our area is home to approximately 50 or more threatened or endangered animal species. Not many places offer such unique variety as Florida's Space Coast. In fact, our National areas have been ranked 11th in the world among Eco-tourist destinations that "give the most enriching experience," and The Wall Street Journal has ranked the Space Coast Birding & Wildlife festival of Brevard County as the 3rd best birding festival in the United States.

So, come to the Cocoa Beach area and experience the WILD SIDE of Florida!
