Where can I park in Cocoa Beach?

Whether you are hitting the beach, going to a great restaurant, or going to an event in Cocoa Beach; you need to know where you can park.

Where can I park in Cocoa Beach?

Heading to Cocoa Beach to enjoy some sand, surf & sun? Maybe you are heading to downtown for lunch, dinner, or to do some shopping? It’s a good idea to have an idea on where you can park and if it will cost you anything to do so. There are some free options, but more than likely wherever you end up parking, it will cost you! Here is an overview of what to expect and ideas on where you can park when heading to my little beach town.

Is there FREE parking in Cocoa Beach?

Looking for FREE parking in Cocoa Beach??? It’s available downtown along North and South A1A for 90 minute parking from 7 am to 7 pm 7 days a week.

Downtown Cocoa Beach Street parking is FREE. The catch is you only have 90 minutes.

Other FREE parking options:

Lori Wilson Park (unless there is an event going on).1500 N Atlantic Ave

Robert Murshke Park 1600 S Atlantic Ave

1281 S Atlantic Ave (really?) yep! It looks like a bus stop. It is actually a tract of land owned by Brevard County that has free parking.

How much does it cost to park in Cocoa Beach?

Look for the Sun icon to find the kiosk to pay for parking

The city website shows there are over 1,300 metered parking spots throughout the city. The cost for any of these parking spots are $2.50 an hour or $10 for the day. You pay at a kiosk which accepts coins, debit cards or credit cards. If you are one of the many who trust their phone to make payments, you can download the Passport Parking Mobile app from either itunes https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/passportparking-mobile-pay/id501324867?mt=8t= or google play https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.passportparking.mobile&hl=en

If you live in Cocoa Beach or visit Cocoa Beach often…I recommend getting a parking pass!

The city of Cocoa Beach does offer a parking pass option. Locals that live in the city limits can get the annual pass for $20. Anyone else can get an annual pass for $75 per year. This pass is good at any kiosk parking (city streets that have beach access points, city parking lots, and the soon to open garage in downtown Cocoa Beach). The parking pass does not work at either Alan Shepard Park (4400 Ocean Beach Blvd) or Sydney Fisher Park (3000 N Atlantic Ave). Both parks charge $2.50 per hour or $15 per day.

There are some privately owned parking spots throughout Cocoa Beach that can be used for a fee. It depends on the day of the week, if it’s a holiday or if there is an event going on for the price. I have seen it anywhere from $10-$30 dollars. (Have some cash with you just in case this is the best option for you)

Do not let parking keep you from enjoying Cocoa Beach. Unless it is a major event (Surf contest, Art Show, Friday Fest, or a rocket launch) There should be options fairly close to where you are planning to go. Remember your sunscreen!

    1. Hello John, I am sorry for the delayed response. I would recommend contacting the city of Cocoa Beach to confirm their requirements. I am 99% certain you can park in the handicapped spots without a fee.
