We entered the park to buy a senior pass which can be purchased at the gate. There is a visitor center which shows a short film. Also, there are plenty of parking lots and boat launches. You can picnic, swim, fish or go boating. We visited the Turtle Mound and stopped by the Eldora House which is currently closed for... More

Late August - fewer crowds on these FL beaches which is truly a plus for visitors. We drove to Canaveral National Seashore North, found out that beach 1 has chemical toilets and beach 5 is 'clothing optional'. Good to know ... It was 4pm but we paid, pulled in and found out there are no lifeguards. The beach and surrounding... More

Beautiful! The sight and sounds of the ocean are spectacular. We could have spent more time here and will definitely revisit here on our next trip.

Great beach, reminds me of Florida 40 years ago. Remote and fairly private; not crowded like Cocoa Beach and other tourist beaches.

Pristine beaches. Old Florida at it´s best. Went up to the very end, the clothing optional beach. I guess it´s neither official nor condoned, but at least it isn´t ticketed. This was my first experience in such a local and at a saggy, baggy, overweight 70, felt completely at ease in the altogether. Everyone looked about the same so no... More

Lovely pristine beach. Not overcrowded like Cocoa Beach or Jetty Park. Great place to fly kites, fish or just relax. Take a walk down the beach to have a great view of Kennedy Space Center.

Gorgeous white sand beaches, beautiful sea-green water and blue sky. Not so many people and a great day at the beach. Bring a beach umbrella, an ice cooler and plenty of sunscreen so you can enjoy a full day of fun in the sun. A pristine and well managed area with lot's of native wildlife. Glad to see some of...

As you enter the park, you feel like you're entering a remote government facility, as it's a couple miles inside if the national park. However, for a flat $5 fee, you get to see the natural seashore, without tourist traps and high-rises. We enjoyed the beach immensely!! This will be our first stop in the future when looking for a...

If you are looking for a pristine beach with blue water, white sand and no commercialism this is the place for you. We visited Playalinda Beach via the bridge from Titusville. Bring a cooler with food and drinks. There is nothing for sale at the beach. When you pay your $5 per car admission, there is a vending machine that... More
