Jetty Park

Jetty Park

Jetty Park is a lovely oceanfront park that encompasses a beach, a playground, picnic areas, pavilions and camping grounds. The pier is a great hit with both walkers and fishermen as it offers great views of marine traffic going to/from Port Canaveral, and also excellent fishing for redfish, common jacks and tarpon. The long sandy ocean-facing beach offers many facilities including year-round lifeguards, easy parking, freshwater showers and restrooms. Visit the busy Cove Waterfront area positioned between the park and the port to find attractive shops, cafes and restaurants. The park is operated by the Port Authority, and is situated to the south coast of the port’s exit channel.
