Half a mile north of 520, off A1A, you'll find The Pier, an exciting extension of the city of Cocoa Beach and the Space Coast. Take in live music (the pier has welcomed the bands such as the Beach Boys and UB40), as you dine several hundred feet above the Atlantic Ocean at The Boardwalk Bar seafood restaurant. Or walk down to the end of the pier for cocktails at Rikki Tiki Tavern. Keith's Oyster Bar and Pelican's Bar and Grill offer great selections, as well. There are also gift shops, volleyball courts and fishing sites. This historical, 800-foot-long landmark is excellent for fishing, as well as playing beach volleyball and some of the best surfing in the area.
