The East Coast beaches of Daytona, Cocoa and New Smyrna Beach are located south of St. Augustine on the Space Coast and are closest to the Orlando area, clocking in at a little over an hour’s drive. Daytona’s reputation precedes it as a party destination, Cocoa is known for surfing, its light gray-brown sand and, of course, as the hometown of Major Anthony Nelson in I Dream of Jeanie. It’s also one of the most popular family vacation beaches in Florida.

Then there is New Smyrna Beach, which is very popular with Central Floridians. It’s peaceful, beautiful and recognizable for its striking white quartz sand. Shop along Flagler Avenue for your beach souvenirs and grab a burger or fish sandwich and a beverage at one of many great dining spots right on the beach.

"Surf lessons at Cocoa Beach"
My daughter took a private surfing lesson through Ron Jon Surf Club at Cocoa Beach, and it was the highlight of the trip for her. Her instructor was fabulous, patient and kind. He not only taught her the basics of surfing, but, also water safety, riptides and shared a bit of his own experiences. Overall it was such a great experience and I would recommend to anyone. Of note, my daughter was 9 years old at the time of her lesson, and still talks about it 3 years later.
