This national park is very beautiful and peaceful. The beach is not crowded and if you like shelling this is a perfect beach to find beauty and different shells. Bring your own food and water because there is no facility there for you to buy anything. If you do not want to see nude people do not go beyond the... More

If you would like to go to the beach with out all the tourist traps and hotels this is it. A short drive from Titusville Florida puts you in the middle of nature. The only building you can see is the rocket launch pad. 13 different parking areas but no running water just permanent pottys.The sand and water are beautiful... More

Super cool place. The water was a little choppy, I definitely wouldnt recommend for children. But for $5, you get a desserted beach, with tons of cool stuff to see. Very peaceful, and would go back.

We actually came to florida to be able to come here as often as we like Senior Citizen passes available - for LIFE, so it is free for the carload. The beach is extensive and uncluttered, except by amazing shorebirds of all kinds. There are tons of off-shoot roads for exploration and gator-gazing (and there are some HUGE gators!). This... More

The appeal of Playalinda beach, to me, is more about what it does not have than what it does. It does not have hoards of people packed in like sardines or poorly maintained buildings (hotels, fast food restaurants, etc) marring the view. Just beautiful ocean waves, clean shoreline and well maintained walk ways and native vegetation

Wow absolutely stunning!!! No restaurants to stink up the beach which is nice because you don't have all the smells and trash floating around. The view is beautiful pure sand very calm waves, not to many sea shells but definitely worth checking out. Also there's a fee to get out to the beach I believe it's 5 dollars and it... More

Apollo beach area had alot of garbage washed up on the beach was disappointed and surprised also the bathrooms were really disgusting. For a national park we probably wouldn't go again. The best part was the south end through Black point wildlife drive.

Like all of our National Parks, Canaveral is just beautiful, We have a Senior Citizen National Parks Pass so it did not cost us an entry fee. The beaches are beautiful and quiet. There are nature trails through other parts of the park. Do go to the Visitor Center and view the film. It gives a brief overview and history... More

This is our favorite beach spot especially during the off season. It's usually not very crowded. It's great to go to a beach without hotels or gift shops. My only complaint is the bathrooms being pretty gross and people sometimes fishing right where you're swimming.

Entrance is $5 per car. We went on a Tuesday. There are 13 parking areas. Each had about 4 cars. The best part about the beach is that it appears untouched. No big condos in sight. Keep in mind that the beaches are clothing optional though it seemed most people went to area 13 for that. Overall a beautiful visit
