Beaches

Beaches

If you are looking for some sand and surf for a day, all the beaches listed below are only a 1-2 hour drive away.Cocoa Beach
One of the beaches that Orlandoians consider “ours,” Cocoa Beach sits just east of Orlando, a straight shot down the State Road 528 toll road. It's incredibly easy to reach—you just get on the expressway and continue until you pass the cruise ship port and hit the beach. It's home to a huge Ron Jon Surf Shop and a handful of popular beachfront bars.New Smyrna Beach
Quieter and more residential than the Cocoa Beach waterfront, New Smyrna Beach is further north on the east coast, but it's also an easy drive from Orlando. Make sure to check out historic Flagler Avenue, which leads from the Indian River to the beach; it's lined with plenty of eateries and shopsClearwater Beach
If it's the Gulf coast you're craving, venture southwest to Clearwater Beach, where the sand is powdery white and the sunsets are dazzling. See Winter the dolphin, of Dolphin Tale fame, at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, or enjoy the nightly Sunset at Pier 60 festival with music, food and fun.Daytona Beach
Just as famous for its NASCAR speedway as its seashore, Daytona Beach nonetheless offers a great Atlantic oceanside environment. It's easily accessible from Orlando via I-4, and it features plenty of hotels, restaurants and bars. You can even drive your car right onto the beach in some areasCanaveral National Seashore
This public park features a gorgeous beach as well as opportunities to fish or take nature hikes. You'll see tons of wildlife here, including 14 species of threatened or endangered animals. Keep your eyes open for bald eagles, wood storks, falcons and manatees, as well as thousands of sea turtle nests.

After a day out on the wild greens, take it easy at the resort's lazy river or full-service spa.
  • Celebration Golf Club - For more than 20 years, Celebration Golf Club enjoyed by families ever since father/son duo Robert Trent Sr. and Robert Trent Jr designed it. They believe every hole should be “a hard par and an easy bogey” to make for a challenging, yet enjoyable game.
  • Reunion Resort Golf Course - Reunion Resort Golf Course is the only place in the world where you'll find signature designed courses by three talented golf legends. You may know them as Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, and Tom Watson. Each course has its own unique twists and tricks that can be enjoyed by golfers of any skill level.
