The Ocean Breeze Homes Condominium complex in Cocoa Beach sits comfortably sandwiched between the Atlantic coast and A1A in the very southern part of Cocoa Beach. The area around the condo is split between paved parking lot and grass where you and your dog can spend time running around before you go down to the beach for a long walk together.
Although you might be in the furthest reaches to the south of the community, you are only a few minutes from the nearest Publix Supermarket where you can pick up food for everyone in your household, including the fluffball! On your way there, you will find a selection of restaurants, bars, and other amenities that are worth checking out.
While you won't find much in the way of green space beyond the beach in the immediate area, there are a few parks to the north, including the Cocoa Beach Public Dog Park where your dog can run around and play off-leash!
Living along South Atlantic Avenue means having a home next to the busiest north-south highway on the peninsula. This stretch of road runs along the beach for many miles in either direction and is a major thoroughfare. While traffic along this roadway never completely stops, it tends to be busiest between the morning and afternoon rush hours. Between these, the traffic is still hectic, but is at least a little more tolerable.
The one thing A1A has going for itself is the wide sidewalk and flat terrain that winds its way alongside it. Unlike most sidewalks, this one doesn’t run in a straight line, but instead meanders back and forth to make your walks with your dog a little more interesting. Keep your dog on a short leash for added control and safety in this area as it can get a little crazy, at times. Consider your pup's comfort and tolerance for noise and you're sure to enjoy your venture in this area.
The nearest green space is right outside the backdoor of the condominium building. This space is Cocoa Beach itself which runs for miles in either direction. The sandy dunes offer two distinct types of terrain. The soft sand is harder to walk on and makes for a great workout. Meanwhile, the wet sand can be used for a nice gentle stroll where you and your dog can enjoy the fresh air and sunshine while looking for seashells along the way.
The nearest off-leash park is the Cocoa Beach Public Dog Park, less than ten minutes to the north on A1A. This park offers 32,000 square feet of fenced-in room for your pup to run. Whether your pup is large or small, there is a section where they can play safely. There's water for the pups and seating in the shade for you and any other visitors to relax on while your dogs all run off and play together.
