Getting There & Away
Three causeways – Hwy 528, Hwy 520 and Hwy 404 – cross Indian River Lagoon, Merritt Island and Banana River to connect Cocoa Beach to the mainland. At Ron Jon's, Hwy 528 (also Minutemen Causeway) cuts south and becomes Hwy AIA (also Atlantic Ave), a north–south strip with chain hotels and restaurants, tourist shops and condos. Hwy A1A divides into two one-way roads (southbound Orlando Ave and northbound Atlantic Ave) for a couple of miles, reconnects and continues south along the barrier-island coast 53 miles to Vero Beach and beyond.
Cocoa Beach is also served by SCAT buses. Rte 9 connects it with Cape Canaveral, and Rte 26 connects it with beaches to the south, all the way to Indialantic.
