The other weekend we decided to get out and head over to Satellite Beach. It's close to Cocoa Beach, but quieter and not so touristy. We joined up with some friends and stayed at a condo that overlooked the ocean. Talk about the perfect writing place!
The waves were pretty big and on the first day the ripe tide was strong because of a tropical storm out off the coast. But the second day we were there, the ocean was calm enough for the boys to get out and learn how to boogie board.
From Orlando its one of the closest beaches if you are looking for something quieter and cleaner. From downtown Orlando, give yourself about an hour and fifteen minutes to get there.
Personally I like the Gulf Coast better, but the waves can't be beat on the Atlantic.
And if you're there, check out Da Kine's Insane Burrito. Yum yum. They have HUGE burritos that are sure to fill you up after playing in the surf all day.
I'm hoping to have posts of great vacation and getaway spots in Florida on my blog. So if you're heading to Florida, hopefully you'll find some good ideas here of where to go!
