Ideas for a Special Date in Cocoa Beach

Taking a Florida vacation? Living in the area? Looking for fun things to do in Cocoa Beach on a date? Here are some ideas for a fabulous and unique date day (or night!), featuring some of the most exciting Cocoa Beach attractions.


What would a date day be without catching some of the best food on the East Coast? There is an abundance of restaurants scattered along the coastal line, giving way to some of the most breath-taking views of the Cocoa Beach water.  With some places, like award-winning Coconuts on the Beach, you can even catch great views of the wildlife around (like porpoises!), or see the live shuttle launches from the comfort of your table. If you want to eat from the pier, enjoy places like Pelican’s Bar & Grill with the original Cocoa Beach Tacos, and Keith’s Oyster Bar, featuring live entertainment.

There are many fine dining options on the Atlantic Avenue stretch as well, such as The Fat Snook, serving local and organic ingredients with boutique wine and craft beer. For fine dining with a German flare and live piano music, check out the Heidelberg Restaurant. Whatever you’re in the mood for on your date, Cocoa Beach dining is able to offer.

Pier Roaming and Sun Soaking

The Cocoa Beach Pier offers a number of great date prospects, from soaking up the sun’s rays on the beach with a cocktail to more engaging experiences, like surfing or seeing some of Florida’s best bands and solo artists. In addition to lounging and surfing, the Cocoa Beach Pier is a popular fishing spot, seeing a variety of unique sea life year-round.  There are also a number of shopping venues that sell apparel, souvenirs, and artisan accessories. These venues also offer rentals on beach accessories, bikes, and more!
