About Satellite Beach, Florida

The beautiful coastal city of Satellite Beach falls within Brevard County. It looks out across the Atlantic Ocean in the east and the Indian River in the west.

It's an idyllic vacation spot. In the summer, it reaches highs of 90 F and, in the winter, it drops to the high 60s. Not bad at all!

It's a great spot for wildlife lovers. North Atlantic right whales calve off the shoreline, while West Indian manatees drift through the canals and the Banana River. You may also see bald eagles swooping overhead.

Surfers will love it here, too – there are some great spots to catch some waves!

The locals are friendly and will welcome you with open arms. 

Plus, the community is dedicated to preserving the coastline, and is super eco-friendly. 

What to do

The main attraction of Satellite Beach? Somewhat unsurprisingly, it's the beach itself.

The white pristine sands glisten in the sun while the waves lap against the shore. It's a great spot to unwind. While you're there, look for fossils of the Atlantic ghost crabs – quite a few wash up on the shoreline.

If nature's your thing, head to Pelican Beach Park for a sea turtle tour. You might have to get up early, but you'll get to see the nests and maybe even a few babies waddling their way to the ocean.

Surfers should go to Hightower Beach Park – you'll catch the best waves here. And, even if you don't surf, it's still a great spot. There are natural dunes and a boardwalk that goes along the coastline. It's a great place for an evening stroll.

Take a boat to Samsons Island during your stay. It's a 52-acre park that’s home to a variety of wildlife, including butterflies, tortoises, armadillos, snakes and birds. Bring a picnic and follow the trails to make the most out of your trip.
