Cocoa Village is a great spot to spend a few days – with tons of restaurants to choose from, and arts & crafts fairs to Mardi Gras parties. There is the fancy upscale french restaurant, Cafe Margeaux, Brasas Argentina Steakhouse and a Thai Thai restaurant as well. Lots of shops and walking around, plus a historic theatre and let’s not forget Travis Hardware which has been around since the 1800′s and has any hard-to-find fitting you might need. Merritt Square Mall is about 5 miles away over the bridge for shopping at JC Penney, Sears, Macy’s & Dillards.

Ms Apple’s is closed Sunday and Monday.

In southerly winds when the two anchorages marked here are uncomfortable, there is a nice anchorage Northeast of the bridge near the marked “channel to nowhere”. A dinghy ride along that channel will take you past a bait shack/bar (favor that side as there is a shoal in the middle of the “cove”) on the right to Ms Apple’s Crab Shack offering the best blue crabs on the east coast and lots of fresh fish and shrimp as well as full meals. About a block up the road is a West Marine.

We don’t usually stop at Cocoa but did 4/1/10. Enjoyed the town, huge rootbeer floats at the Village Ice Cream and Sandwich Shoppe and pizza at Ryan’s. The holding is so good that we barely got the anchor out of the tarry bottom. Lots of room for boats.
