The oldest town in Brevard County, Florida, Melbourne Beach is located on an island separating the Atlantic Ocean from the Indian River Lagoon. It is home to some incredible fauna as well as beautiful unspoiled beaches perfect for vacationers. Melbourne Beach is situated along so-called Florida’s Space Coast for the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, and is a great place to stay to visit those attractions. In Melbourne Beach you can take your pick from the variety of incredible outdoor activities as well as soaking up some culture in town.
If you head to the beach make sure you stop at the Melbourne Beach Pier for exceptional sunset photo opportunities! This is also a perfect spot for a moonlit, romantic walk, dolphin watching, and learning about the local nesting turtles. If the wildlife is what draws you then people of all ages will love the Sea Turtle Preservation Society, a place to learn more about these incredible creatures in their natural habitat. The same goes for Manatees, birds and all manner of marine life with educational centers and sanctuaries dedicated to the plethora of wildlife in this area. When you tire of the beach (is that likely with all the soft white sand?) you can relax among tropical plants at the Florida Tech Botanical Gardens. A lovely place to take a pretty walk and forget you’re so close to a busy, bustling town. While you’re here you have to stroll the Indian River Antique Mall, perfect for a rainy day or a few hours away from the beach perusing antiques, shabby chic décor, and everything and anything for your home.
Most visitors flock to the beach areas here for the obvious perk of being able to walk straight onto the sand.
Come year round to enjoy the Florida weather! If you’re interested in the Independent Filmmakers Festival, visit in October.
