I visited Playalinda beach on a warm day in January 2020.

, Parking, Restrooms and Short Drives to Restaurants.

All Rights Reserved. I actually enjoy the fact that no cars are permitted to drive on the beach - the sand even looks different from just a few miles down where there more traffic. We were hoping to get to see a rocket launch, but rain delays happen.

This is a Federal Park (Cape Canaveral National Seashore) so they do have park rangers driving their ATV's up and down the beach, but they don't bother us sunbathing in the nude!!

I visited Playalinda beach on a warm day in January 2020. Portable restrooms on the parking lots ( in Summer Time, they have a strong smell and bugs due to the heat). It's a National or perhaps state park, costs $10 per car or $40 for the year, with discounts for older folks. You see lots of birds, sea creatures, insects, and if you come at dawn or dusk, lots of mosquitoes, so remember your organic bug spray.Coming here is a trek. Beach is not too crowded, very friendly people, non-judgemental,  We met a group there that we've seen many times over the past 7 years and now we hang out with them on Saturdays, great people!! What a perfect day at the Playa Linda beach with my family.

Claim your business to immediately update business information, respond to reviews, and more! ?I can't wait to come back, whether it's for a rocket launch or another day of fun. loveley scenery. You can see the Kennedy Space Center from the beach. At the end of the day I walked back to my car, beach bag in hand, without bothering to put my swimsuit back on.

The town of Titusville is about 20 minutes away, and here you can load up at a supermarket. You will always see the beach differently. This was our 3rd trip and we love it more and more each visit. Lots of interesting plant and animal life, and lots of nude sunbathers ( ... but if you don't mind them, they won't mind you).The seashore is in the fallout zone of NASA shuttle and rocket launches, thus the park shuts down a few days before launch.

On our last cruise out of Baltimore, the ship stopped on the Florida coast, and we sauntered past the busloads of folks going to see Mickey/Harry and other licensed characters, rented a car and decided to check out this national park I'd heard plenty about but never visited.

Upon immediately discovering nudity, I stripped down myself. If the weather is nice and you aren't carrying photo gear, perhaps this would be a refreshing walk. Let us know how you liked it in the comments. 8:00 am – 8:00 pm, Wednesday 8:00 am – 8:00 pm, Sunday

On the flip-side, this 'inconvenience' keeps the crowds limited. Eddy Creek, Canaveral National Seashore. Since ancient times, this barrier island has provided sanctuary to both people and wildlife. Love this beach!

The NASA visitor center was closed by the time we left the beach but the place is huge. We come here because it is almost like your own private beach, now crowds, no traffic, and absolutely gorgeous!

This is a great option if you are looking for a more quiet beach-going experience and not looking for all the hustle and bustle of Cocoa.

There are 13 parking lots and starting at lot 11 you can expect to start seeing a lot of nudists. It was just the clerk at the gate that was working alone without any help.

The annual pass is $40. There are toilets available, outhouse type.

This is also the only place in central Florida where I have seen mangroves (actually those are along the road to the gate) or a roseate spoonbill.ITEM: The park closes at 6pm; you'll be asked to pack up around 5:30. Unlike most beaches in Florida, these beaches are part of Canaveral National Seashore, a national park, so there is a lot of wilderness in its pristine habitat. Many threatened and endangered species find refuge here, including sea turtles who nest on its shores.

The first thing that I wasn't too thrilled about was the fact that this beach seems so far away from town and forget about getting any kind of cellular signal. Such a calm environment, really peaceful, positive vibes here. People were also fishing off the beach.

You can see the NASA shuttle launch site from here. There is almost no trash and we walked about 1 mile up the beach from our spot and only found one piece of glass that had clearly washed up. If you happen to visit Playalinda Beach on the day of a rocket launch you will likely even be able to see the rocket being prepared. For wildlife you can expect to see a lot of crabs, pelicans, sanderlings, and sea turtle nests. The seashore stretches for miles of pristine beach with several areas where wildlife may be view.

We visited here on the way back from FL. Went here with my girlfriend on a Sunday to see a SpaceX launch.

We were there on a Thursday set up just past the 2nd walkway from lot 13 and within 5 minutes we had several walk bys from guys.

Great clothing optional beach, field 13.

The launch got cancelled at the last second, but it was still a great day. .css-1o5pw2t{width:24px;height:24px;display:inline-block;vertical-align:middle;position:relative;overflow:hidden;top:-0.1em;fill:rgba(187,186,192,1);}.css-1o5pw2t::before{position:absolute;display:block;left:0;}.css-1o5pw2t::after{content:'';display:block;position:absolute;left:0;right:0;top:0;bottom:0;}.css-1o5pw2t svg{position:absolute;width:100%;height:100%;fill:inherit;display:block;left:0;top:0;right:0;bottom:0;}.css-1o5pw2t:hover,.css-1o5pw2t:focus{fill:rgba(117,114,128,1);}. worth the drive , everyone observed beach etiquette , pretty , clean beach99 % were nudevery enjoyable.

Kind of re-prioritizes what you're thinking about when the current starts pulling you out to sea and there is literally no one who can fix that situation but you.

My favorite beach and spot ! Finally figured it out....that's the nude beach! Lots of interesting plant and animal life, and lots of nude sunbathers ( ... but if you don't mind them, they won't mind you).

During the last few minutes of the drive there are official signs warning of nudity around beach lot #13.

NO lifeguards on duty so keep an eye on your little ones. What a perfect day at the Playa Linda beach with my family.

It's $5 to get into the park and go to the beach, it's the same thing if you want to go to Jetty park. I've been here twice now to view Atlas V launches, and this is absolutely the closest you can get while staying off-property (and saving $40+ per person).


We parked at parking lot 2, so we didn't venture too far, but I hear parking lots 13 and 14 are wear the nudists hang.

Later I learned that nudity is allowed only on the beach.

** COMPLETELY deserted, including lifeguards. Love this beach. One of the best beaches I've been to so far! It took me 2 hours to pass the guard to pay $20 to get in.

Very peaceful place.

Yes, yes, it's part of a preservation system and you can tell because this beach was very clean, quiet, not a lot of people, there is a special wildlife sanctuary;  I can see the allure for sure. What more need to be said. Had a wonderful time. The beach was basically deserted and we felt like we had it all to ourselves. See all photos from Pamela S. for Canaveral National Seashore.

Yelp users haven’t asked any questions yet about Canaveral National Seashore.

Also, there is no shower, no water anyway in there, just to let you know.The $20 that you pay is for the pavement road and the wood ramp  that will take you to the beach and a potty with hand sanitizer. It seems to me that Cape Canaveral loves to charge people to visit it's beaches.
