A Day at the Beach

We are often asked about where to find the nearest beach to Orlando and how to get there., but here’ You can check out the full details on our article, But here’s a quick reply. The nearest beach is Cocoa Beach, 65 miles away on Florida’s East (Atlantic) coast. It takes no more than an hour to get there from villas in Kissimmee, along the 528 (Beachline) which is a toll road.

Cocoa Beach has beautiful white sand and some good waves for surfing. You can walk for miles just watching the pelicans diving and the occasional dolphin breaking the surface if you’re lucky. There’s a pier with food and amenities and beach rentals for chairs, umbrellas, bodyboard rentals etc. 

Further north is New Smyrna Beach and Daytona Beach – both with hard packed sand that you can pay to access and park on. Daytona has lots of restaurants, amusements, splash parks, car parking and shops overlooking the beachfront. It’s famous for its surfing, fishing pier and the Daytona International Speedway. New Smyrna Beach is much quieter with lovely sand and surf but few amenities. Both beaches can be reached in about 90 minutes along I-4 East.

If your prefer the calm Gulf Coast, Clearwater beach is a lovely sandy beach with soft white sand, plenty of parking lots and beach rentals. It can be busy in all seasons. The warm waters are ideal for sunbathing, swimming and watersports.

Our group of 23 stayed for 6 days here. We enjoyed the amenities and location to the Disney and Universal parks.

This was the perfect location! This property is not a long drive at all from Disney and very close to a lot of local restaurants/attractions. The neighborhood is very secure and nice. The house itself was tidy and spacious. Exactly what my family needed on this trip!

Good time all was well

This property is approximately 10 minutes from Disney and close to lots of restaurants, Walmart, Publix and gift shops! Allow extra travel time because traffic is heavy in the area.

This house was perfect for our family. We had a couple of questions and we got super quick responses. Very easy to all of the Disney parks, SeaWorld, and the airport. My granddaughter LOVED her room, the playroom, and the pool was perfect! The only negative we have to comment on would be the air conditioning. I think that might need updating or something. It never was cool in there. We are from PA so it wasn't a big deal to us!

There were three families, 5 kids ages 3 to 10 plus adults. There was more thank enough room for all of us inside and out. Neighborhood is very nice and location to Encore is excellent. We went to the parks each day, super easy drive. Kitchen is well stocked with appliances, pots and pans. We were there for a week. We cooked most of our meals at home, if you don’t plan to do that you may not need additional items in kitchen. We bought paper supplies, toilet paper, paper hand towels, napkins, salt and paper, Tupperware, foil, seranwrap
