Ocean Avenue's Beach

This is truly one of the best beaches in Florida! The views are breathtaking, and the water is warm! This beach is a great spot for a swim or kayak among the mangroves.

Plus, the courts were recently renovated with new nets, lines, and poles – making them apt for competitive or recreational games alike.

The Volunteer Fire Department and Community Center

The fire department and community center are two essential parts of our local community. In addition to providing emergency response services, they also offer a variety of educational programs to help residents learn about fire safety and prevention. 

The center also provides a safe space for local youth to gather after school or on weekends and offers classes that focus on job readiness skills. Their commitment to the community is another reason Melbourne Beach is one of the best places to live in Florida for families and singles alike. Plus, the community center often hosts events! Locals will find movie nights, holiday celebrations, and special workshops here throughout the year. Volunteer-run organizations like these are what help make Melbourne Beach so special!
