Satellite Beach vacation rentals

Florida's Space Coast is out of this world

Nestled on a sandy barrier island between the Banana and Indian Rivers to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, the delicate ecosystems of Satellite Beach make for a one-of-a-kind beach vacation. The windswept dunes are home to several species of sea turtles, birds, and other endangered wildlife that you won't encounter anywhere else. The perfect combination of sun, ocean, and adventure, there's something for everyone at a Satellite Beach vacation rental. You'd be hard-pressed to find another place where you can catch the perfect wave in the morning and tour the space shuttle that same afternoon.

With this much fun, you'll be over the moon

There's so much to do outside, you'll have a hard time choosing. Surfers and swimmers flock to the countless beaches for some quality time in the sun. Samsons Island Nature Park, reachable only by boat, offers top-notch birdwatching, nature trails, and picnicking. Take your pick between fresh and saltwater fishing, or try your hand at kiteboarding, windsurfing, or paddleboarding. Soak up some local culture at the arts festivals, boutiques, galleries, and surf shops, or treat yourself to a day of indulgence at one of the many spas. Catch an amazing sunrise while you stroll the idyllic Indialantic Boardwalk.

Where the Atlantic Ocean meets outer space

No visit to the Space Coast would be complete without a trip to the Kennedy Space Center in world-famous Cape Canaveral, where you can visit the astronaut hall of fame and see the Space Shuttle Atlantis on display. While you're there, check out the massive cruise ships at Port Canaveral and the picturesque Cape Canaveral Lighthouse, dating from 1848. Art lovers will want to check out the Foosaner Art Museum and the galleries tucked among the mature oaks of the Eau Gallie Arts District. Be sure to stop for a bite and some souvenirs at the iconic Cocoa Beach Pier.

Where the winters are warm and the summers are warmer

You can leave the winter coats behind when you head to your Satellite Beach vacation rental. High temperatures usually stay in in the 70s and 80s year round, though you might see some days in the 90s in July and August, or a slight dip below 70 in January or February. While you might want a light sweater for your evening adventures during the coldest months, there's always plenty of sunshine and fresh ocean air to go around, but none of the white stuff. Don't forget to pack the sunscreen.

Get up close and personal with the endangered species list

It's amazing how much wildlife exists on such a small spit of land. A Satellite Beach vacation rental will surround you with rare and endangered animals like green and loggerhead sea turtles, West Indian manatees, and bald eagles. Pristine sandy stretches are interspersed with rolling dunes full of vegetation like sea oats, sea grapes, grasses, and wildflowers. Try to spot some whales off the shore while you're catching the sunrise. Between the ocean and the Indian River Lagoon, there's more than enough marine life to go around.
