Orlando is one of the most popular vacation destinations in Florida, and it's no secret why. After all, this town has incredible attractions including Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, SeaWorld, and Legoland. However, one thing that Orlando does not have is beaches. But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy the shore on your next trip! There are several incredible beaches near Orlando, Florida that you can enjoy with just a short drive away. When you're staying in one of our Orlando vacation rentals near Disney, take some time to visit one (or all!) of these beaches!

Cocoa Beach

Located about an hour outside of Orlando, Cocoa Beach is situated on Florida's east coast and is best known for its stunning nature and laid-back atmosphere. If you're interested in surfing, this is a great place to be, as the waves are great for every skill level, and you can also book surf lessons. The beaches are well-maintained and are perfect for families and guests of all ages, and as you walk along the shoreline, you'll find plenty of opportunities for fun water sports. If you want to enhance your experience, take a trip to the Kennedy Space Center while you’re in town!

Daytona Beach

If you're willing to take a bit of a longer drive, make the 90-minute journey to Daytona Beach. Families from across the country flock here to experience the breathtaking shorelines, exciting boardwalk, and beautiful weather conditions. The atmosphere here is lively and fun, perfect for an unforgettable day with the ones you love most. Once you're done hanging out on the sand for a while, head over to the boardwalk to play games and explore the other attractions. Daytona Beach has tons to see and do, so you can spend the entire day enjoying yourself here.

New Smyrna Beach

Drive an hour away from downtown Orlando to head to New Smyrna Beach, a breathtaking 13-mile stretch of shoreline overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. This destination is still relatively undiscovered by tourists, giving it a quiet and calm atmosphere perfect for a day of relaxation. Still, if you are looking for some thrills, the surfing conditions here are considered to be some of the best in the world! If you do decide to head to this beach, be sure to check out the town as well, as it holds some truly fascinating history and plenty of cute places to shop and dine.

Canaveral National Seashore

Nature lovers are sure to appreciate the conditions of Canaveral National Seashore, located an hour away from Orlando. In addition to the breathtaking beach itself, you’ll get to witness some truly magnificent creatures, including endangered species like sea turtles. This beach is relatively secluded and is often ignored in favor of the more popular New Smyrna Beach nearby, so those who do come here are in for a relaxed experience. But “relaxed” doesn’t have to mean boring! Besides wildlife watching, you'll also find opportunities for fishing, boating, surfing, kayaking, horseback riding, hiking, and more.

Clearwater Beach

Finally, Clearwater Beach is the furthest away, about two hours from downtown Orlando, but we promise the journey is worth it! As the name suggests, this destination has crystal clear waters that are ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and jet skiing. Clearwater Beach consistently makes the cut for one of the country's best beaches, thanks in large part to the breathtaking plant life and incredible weather conditions all year long. If you do decide to visit Clearwater, spend some time in the neighboring city of St. Petersburg for even more adventure!

These beaches are just a short drive away and promise to bring a taste of the sand and surf into your vacation.
