Located inside the Cape Canaveral National Seashore, Playlinda Beach is one of the quietest beaches you’d have the pleasure of sunning on without fighting a crowd. It’s also popular with surfers and sea turtles. Canaveral National Seashore is an important nesting area for several species of threatened and endangered sea turtles. As many as 4,500 nests have been recorded each summer along the 24-miles of protected beach.

Playalinda Beach is open to the public daily between 6:00 am to 6:00 pm in the winter and 6:00 am to 8:00 pm in the summer. Like Jetty Park to the south, there is a daily fee to enter the park.
