Satellite Beach is a fun and lively sub tropical coastal town on the barrier island of Brevard County that borders the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Intracoastal waterway to the west. Located approximately 15 miles south of the famed Cape Canaveral Air Force Station where NASA rockets are launched, Satellite Beach covers just over 4 square miles and has over 10,000 residents. Residental real estate in Satellite Beach includes everything from modest condos, townhomes, villas and single family homes to luxury waterfront mansions. Prices start at around $100,000 and soar up to over the $3 million + range in areas like exclusive Lansing Island. Known as a desirable family community, with the highly sought after Surfside Elementary School, Satellite Beach also has many beachfront condos with gorgeous, panoramic sweeping ocean views. Highway A1a runs the entire length of Satellite Beach along the Atlantic Ocean and is the main motor artery through Satellite Beach.
Surfing is a major passion for many of the residents of Satellite Beach, and you will often see people walking home from the beach with surfboards under their arms. Beach access to the ocean is plentiful with public Beach Access crossovers found frequently throughout the entire length of the ocean beaches. 75% of all nesting Florida Loggerhead Turtles nest on the beaches of Brevard County. Female Loggerheads come out of the ocean between May and October to dig their nests and lay their precious eggs. A night time walk along the beach in nesting season almost guarantees a sighting of one of these huge, magnificent and shy creatures.
The Intracoastal waterway, also known as the Indian River is renowned for its boating. Sailboats, fishing vessels and luxury cruisers are a common site along the shores of the Indian River in Satellite Beach. It is not uncommon to drive over one of the causeways and see dolphins frolicking next to Satellite Beach residents out on their jet ski’s.
Satellite Beach has excellent accessibility to everything that Brevard County offers. Orlando International Airport and Disneyworld are less than an hour away as is the busy cruse port of Port Canaveral which sees several different cruise lines leaving for Caribbean cruises on a daily basis. The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is just a bit further north and is full of exciting and mesmerizing NASA information.
