MELBOURNE BEACH: GATEWAY TO BEACH AND FISHING PARADISE
Melbourne Beach is a quiet bedroom community of about 3,000 people on the barrier island across the Indian River Lagoon from the larger city of Melbourne. It is Brevard County's oldest beach community.
The village has numerous access points to the beautiful sand beaches. Melbourne Beach is also the main access point for the long stretch of beach along State Road A1A all the way down to Sebastian Inlet.
The barrier island has many parks and beach access points between Melbourne Beach and the inlet.

RECOMMENDED MELBOURNE BEACH RESTAURANT
DIJON'S STEAK AND LOBSTER HOUSE
522 Ocean Avenue
Melbourne Beach, Florida 32951
Djon's is a fine dining establishment named after its owner, Djon Papej. It is not your typical beach establishment; you will be okay wearing slacks or shorts and a polo shirt, but leave your flip-flops and tee shirt at home.
This place warrants your dressing up a bit; you won't be disappointed. I lived for many years near this restaurant. In the old days it was known as Poor Richard's.

NOTE: DURING THIS PERIOD OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, THE RESTAURANT SHOULD BE CONTACTED REGARDING ITS CURRENT STATUS.

September is starting to cool down in Florida, but many of us stay home in our air conditioned homes during the pandemic. Some heroic people go to their jobs every day and we appreciate them. Some restaurants are open with curbside service only or limited seating. Everybody is doing their best. The weather is still too hot
and humid, so we enjoy our time at home by reading and getting caught up on chores. Not many restaurants are completely open, but some are. Most of our snowbirds are still up north, but some are staying in their Florida homes during the pandemic. Restaurants are beginning to open with new recommended health procedures in place. Some also offer take out or delivery services.
