Cearra Del Ray is a small condominium complex located on A1A and across the street from the beach. This is an excellent location with direct access to the waterfront. Living here puts you within walking distance of the coast, but if you want to eat out or go shopping, you have to head north on A1A where you will come to a supermarket and a shopping center. Along the way, you will also pass several restaurants well worth taking the time to check out.
Along with being near the water, you are also close to the Mosquito Lagoon Aquatic Preserve, an aptly named area of waterways, swamps, and land masses. Being right on the busiest street on the beachside, you can expect to deal with a lot of traffic from early morning to late at night. You can also expect a fair amount of pedestrian traffic during the day with people coming and going to the beach in the hot summer.
It can't get much busier than living on the busiest street in town! A1A is the main north-south thoroughfare running down the east coast and sees a lot of commercial traffic along with tourists and those who live here. There are crosswalks for you and your dog to use when you want to go for a walk on the beach, so be sure you use them. When walking on the sidewalks, keep your dog on a tight leash when there are people around for their safety and yours.
There are a few places to eat to the south you can walk to once the sun starts to set and things cool off a little. For safer walking, there are numerous residential blocks behind the condo for you and your dog to use. None of these blocks have sidewalks, so you will be walking on the roads, requiring extra care to avoid being hit by a car.
Living in Cearra Del Ray means living near not one, but two vast green spaces. The first is the beach which offers the perfect place to take your dog for walks. However, like the rest of town, the beach gets a lot of traffic, including cars. With so many people moving about, it is far too easy for accidents to happen. The best way to avoid this is for you and your dog to take your walks early in the morning.
On the other side is a fisherman's paradise, the Mosquito Lagoon Aquatic Preserve. Covering a vast area, Mosquito Lagoon is part of the Indian River Lagoon System. Not only is the fishing excellent, but you never know when you might run across a Florida manatee or a few members of the dolphin pod that lives here. Be sure you use a GPS that tracks your trip turn by turn. You may need it as it is very easy to get lost!
