When you are tired of being cold and you miss the sunshine, even as it sparkles from your Valentine’s eyes, it is time to make your way south for the most romantic day of the year. Wondering how far south? We at Stay In Cocoa Beach think heading straight to our town and our beautiful and romantic love nests should be just far enough and this guide will help you fill the seconds, minutes, and hours of Valentine’s Day in Cocoa Beach with love, fun, and excitement!
Real life is exhausting, and traveling many miles doesn’t make you any less tired, although it may not seem romantic at first, we can promise the benefits of a “lie-in” are wonderful on every level. Even if you are awake, snuggling under the softest linens, talking about the plans for the day ahead, and just delaying the ultimate moment of having to place your feet on the floor next to the bed, these early moments will be the ones you return to in your mind on the crazy days that lie ahead in real life.
While most people concentrate on dinner as the romantic meal of the day (and we will have some suggestions for that, later down the page) we see breakfast as offering another opportunity for a meal filled with love and emotion. Maybe this will be the day you start a new tradition of serving your Valentine a breakfast in bed, being sure not to forget the mimosas, or maybe a Valentine’s Day brunch is what makes both your hearts beat a little quicker. If the former is your favorite idea, our fully equipped kitchens will help the meal-making process go smoothly even if you do nothing more than serve donuts and mimosas. For a love-filled Valentine’s brunch, Whisk & Grind, located at 410 N Atlantic Avenue, offers a hearty menu of your breakfast favorites, all designed to fuel up your bodies in the most delicious of ways.
As the sun shines down on your adventures for Valentine’s Day in Cocoa Beach and warm temperatures invite you to keep the heavy coat you traveled in hanging in your closet, not be used until your return to reality, the waters that make Cocoa Beach such a beloved vacation destination may be calling and our first sea-themed adventure will take place a board a couple of colorful kayaks. Rent your own from Cocoa Kayaking, 5000 Tom Warriner Boulevard, following the maps or instructions provided by helpful staff or let the knowledgeable guides at Fin Expeditions lead you to the best spots on the water. Located at 599 Ramp Road, their sunset tours will give you yet another romantic adventure.
One of our favorite couple’s activities is a massage and Cocoa Beach Spa, (321) 613-2943 is known for having the best hands in the business. Serving Cocoa Beach for over 15 years, their couple’s massages are completed with soft music, aromatherapy, and steamed towels in a room built for two. The beds will be side by side and as you lose yourself in the moment, a quick glance, a quiet comment, and the sighs that can be heard from both of you will serve as reminders that you are not alone.
Now is the time to discuss the most beautiful way to end a day of love and romance, and of course, we are talking about the Valentine’s Day meal. There are, in our minds, three requirements for a perfect holiday meal: The food should be local seafood, the meal should include views of the sun setting over the sea, and your Valentine should be sitting in the chair across from you. We all remember the days when we would share a booth with our loves, but the reality is you want to look in their eyes with every bite, and you just can’t do that when sitting side by side. Our favorite romantic restaurant brings us back to Cocoa Beach Pier, Pier 62 Oceanfront Restaurant & Bar, which offers a patio that looks over the sea, (see requirement number 1) fresh seafood harvested from the waters around the pier (requirement two can be checked off) and of course, your Valentine staring across the table at you with stars in her eyes.
Now, except for the couple’s massage and the kayak tours, all the above activities can be enjoyed by just the two of you in the love nest you chose to make your own. Fully equipped kitchens invite lovebirds to create meals together, comfy couches placed in front of state-of-the-art televisions encourage watching Hallmark movies together, and patios and balconies staring out on the most beautiful of views offer the best sightings of the Florida sunset.
