Cocoa Beach is the closest beach to Orlando, about 45 minutes to an hour from the city, though just a couple of miles from the cruise terminal in Port Canaveral.
cocoa beach and city is a tourist trap, not worth the trip, ride or fuss. should have stayed on the ship which was empty.

Too crowded. Good waves, surfing was nice - little scary at times. You can rent chair ; umbrella pretty much it all. I would not do it again. Hardly any place to even put your stuff on the beach - it was that crowded.
