ABOUT MELBOURNE BEACHES
Brevard County’s oldest beach community is Melbourne Beach and can be accessed by traveling along A1A or going over the Melbourne Causeway from US1 to A1A. Melbourne Beach is situated on a barrier island that separates the Indian River Lagoon from the Atlantic Ocean. Nearby bordering beachside cities include Indialantic, Indian Harbour Beach and Satellite Beach – all located within Brevard County.
If you continue traveling north on A1A you will reach Cocoa Beach and Port Canaveral – both within an hour drive to Orlando where you can access the closest International airport, theme parks and major department stores. If you want to vacation close by, simply pack a few swimsuits and hop on a cruise line to the Bahamas or Caribbean right out of Port Canaveral.
The beachside area offers many recreational opportunities for residents and seasonal tourists. On any given day you’ll see surfers, swimmers, runners going across the causeway bridges, shell collectors and photographers enjoying the outdoors. One beach even welcomes dogs to come and play! In the early morning hours before admiring a gorgeous sunrise you may have the chance to observe a sea turtle laying eggs or cheer on hatchlings as they start their journey towards the ocean. Every year, the sea turtles return to shoreline creating approximately one nest per 10 feet. Gleason Park, comprised of 27 acres features a boardwalk for strolling or fishing, shady gazebos by a lake, picnic facilities, a mapped walking trail, a playground and lighted baseball, softball and soccer field.
Every month different parts of the area will host art festivals and farmers markets providing a great way to meet new people in your community while supporting the artists and economy. After a day spent outside, check out one of the locally owned restaurants that welcome your casual attire and sandy feet while you enjoy lunch.
