Valkaria

Valkaria

Located at the south end of Brevard County, Valkaria has little urban development, with water and sewage being supplied by septic tanks. The setting is rural, but many have chosen to build upscale homes on acre-plus lots. Its peace and quiet are a draw for those who hope to get away from the hustle and bustle of Brevard County's cities.

However, just because Valkaria is rural, that doesn't mean it's without its excitement. The community is home to beautiful Habitat Golf Course, a 6,836-yard, par-72 course set amidst the rolling hills, pine forests, and wetlands of the area. Horseback riding is a popular pastime, and for those who do not have their own horses, riding lessons are available locally.

A short drive away are the restaurants, shops, theaters, and attractions of both Melbourne and Palm Bay. Its riverside location provides for fantastic fishing opportunities, and many residents take advantage by finding primed fishing holes where "the big ones" like to hang out. Many docks, boat ramps, and push offs provide for easy access to all of the Indian River's glory.

With its rural setting and beautiful sights, Valkaria is growing as a Brevard County desired destination. It's only a matter of time before others discover this rural, picturesque paradise.
