The cocoa beach has small shops lining up to the beach itself, you can buy cheap eye wear, hats, souvenirs made from sea shells etc from these shanties.
Dolphin ride at Cocoa Beach: - The most famous adventure activity at Cocoa beach is the Dolphin ride, because of the unique location of the beach the dolphin search and location is very easily done.
