Playalinda On The Canaveral National Seashore

Mosquito Lagoon's Pristine Beach

Friday June 22, 2018

My Spanish is pretty poor, but when I put the words "Playa" & "Linda" together it makes Beautiful Beach or Playalinda which pretty much describes this National Treasure of a shoreline on Brevard and Volusia County's coast. Playalinda is now part of the Canaveral National Seashore that's open to the pubic during most of the daylight hours for recreational use. During some launch windows at Kennedy Space Center public access is closed for safety and then reopened the following day.

There are several access points where beach users can park their automobiles and traverse across boardwalks to the ocean and sand. Walking on the dunes is strictly prohibited and punishable by fines, arrest, etc... So DON'T WALK ON THE DUNES!

The northern end of the park adjacent to the camera pad dome is the prohibited area where naturalist sunbath and nudist abound. There are signs warning this is against park rules and state laws but none has been enforced and seems to be simply ignored by park rangers and the general public.

Visitors that wish to hike the whole beach from Playalinda northward to Apollo Beach can apply for a daily permit to do so at the visitors center.

Directly adjacent to Playalinda Beach to the west is the World Famous Mosquito Lagoon and it's over twenty miles of waterway stretching northward to Edgewater and beyond to New Smyrna Inlet. Boaters, anglers and wildlife enthusiast will be thrilled at the amount of natural habitat and wildlife that abounds on this refuge.

Visit and relax on the pristine and enticing beautiful Playalinda Beach boarding the scenic Canaveral National Seashore and world famous Mosquito Lagoon
