Welcome to the
Town of Grant-Valkaria
Since the 1880s, the villages of Grant and Valkaria have existed in harmony within the borders of Brevard County, Florida. We are pleased to announce that effective July 25, 2006 these two communities were joined by referendum and act of law into the single Incorporated Town of Grant-Valkaria. This Town was founded in order to secure the local benefits of self-government, preserve our history, protect our future, maintain a rural quality of life, and foster responsible, community-controlled growth. Living in this area has many benefits including the Melbourne International Airport being only 5 miles south of the Eau Gallie Causeway.
Just six miles long, and mostly less than one mile wide, Cocoa Beach is truly a unique place! Where else can you choose between watching a space launch from the beach or precious animal species in their natural habitat? You can choose between a swim in the ocean, or a quiet kayak exploration off the Banana River islands, from our river shore? Play a round of golf at our 27-holes golf course, surf cast from the beach for dinner, or just enjoy a day at the beach where you will likely see dolphins at play or be lucky enough to see an occasional whale in migration. Widely known as the surfing capitol of the East Coast, Cocoa Beach is the hometown of surfing champions.
