On the Cocoa Beach Pier (www.cocoabeachpier.com), at the beach end of Meade Avenue, you'll get a fine view down the coast to accompany the seafood offerings at Atlantic Ocean Grill (tel. 321/783-7549) and the mediocre pub fare at Marlins Good Times Bar & Grill (same phone). The restaurants may not justify spending an entire evening on the pier, but the outdoor, tin-roofed Mai Tiki Bar, where live music plays most nights, is a prime spot to have a cold one while watching the surfers or a sunset.
