Sea Dogs: Those traveling with kids will especially want to stop by this delicious local eatery. Sea Dogs serves time honored favorites like hot dogs, nachos and cheese, and even smoked turkey legs with desserts like sundaes, ice cream cones, and smoothies also available.

Rikki Tiki Tavern: At the end of the pier, you will find this open-air bar with spectacular views of the ocean. Enjoy a nice cold beer while you listen to the soothing sounds of the ocean. Or, try one of the Tavern's many specialty drinks.

Mission Control Game Room: Escape the sun and heat for a while with a game of pool or pop a shot at the Mission Control Game Room. Arcade enthusiasts will surely be happy with the wide variety of popular arcade games.

Fishing: Test your skills as an angler by fishing from the 800-foot pier! Everything you need, from permits to poles to bait, are available for rental .You might be lucky enough to land a Snapper, Flounder, Wahoo, or Grouper. Even if you don’t, you will without a doubt have a great fish story from your day on the pier.

After your fun filled day at the Cocoa Beach Pier, head on back to the International Palms Resort to recharge for a well-deserved night out. Stop by S&A Bar and Grill for drinks in a pub atmosphere. On Sundays, you will definitely not want to miss the reggae music at Jamaikin Me Crazy.

“Enjoyed Our Pre-Cruise Loft!!!”
We stayed here before our cruise with as a group of four friends and had a great time!... We really enjoyed the tiki bar -- the rum buckets were great! Live music was also nice on Friday night. There were quite a few family friendly amenities and the property was right next to the beach. Would stay again!
