Feel the Thunder

Feel the Thunder

For the past 10 years, Thunder on Cocoa Beach has been delighting spectators with high-octane powerboat races. In fact, in that time period, Thunder on Cocoa Beach has grown into one of the largest Super Boat races in the entire United States. From May 16-19, you can join in on the fun at this extremely popular annual event. You and your family will be amazed as the boats rush across the water, sometimes at close to 200 miles per hour, creating big waves, a rush of wind, and, of course, the sound of thunder. All of the fun takes place at Westgate Cocoa Beach Pier which is less than 10 minutes from the International Palms Resort. In addition to the races, be sure to check out some of the local vendors who will be providing delicious food and ice cold drinks throughout the event. Thunder on Cocoa Beach allows spectators to experience the rush of adrenaline that comes with these incredible powerboats.

“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!
