Playalinda Beach, Florida USA

Playalinda is considered a surfing location by many of the locals.

Playalinda is accessible from Titusville, Florida. The beach is currently open to the public daily between 6:00 am to 8:00 pm. Access to the beach may be closed periodically in preparation for rocket launches from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station or the Kennedy Space Center, which are just south of Playalinda Beach. The nude beach section starts at the very end of crossover 13, which is accessed from parking 13B.

Canaveral National Seashore has concurrent jurisdiction with both the state of Florida and its counties of Volusia and Brevard. Federal, State and County law enforcement officers may enforce any and all respective laws/ordinances that do not conflict with Federal laws and regulations.

Brevard County has an ordinance that prohibits nudity in public places. Playalinda Beach is within the jurisdiction of Brevard County thus the nudity ordinance is enforceable by county and state law officers as well as federal park rangers. The laws are rarely or erratically enforced, however, affording the beach a de facto clothing-optional status. This is only at the last parking location parking lot #13.

This beach was nice and quiet. Very relaxing. However, parking is an absolute pain! The last parking lot is small and if you don’t get a spot, plan on walking a far distance to the next lot. There is no natural shade, so bring an umbrella.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
