Playalinda Beach is one of Florida’s top spots for naturists. Part of the Cape Canaveral National Seashore near the Kennedy Space Centre, the beach is managed by the National Parks Service and there is a $20 admission fee per vehicle which is valid for one week.
The four mile-long beach has 13 parking areas, each with a restroom and the last one heading north (#13) is favoured by naturists as it is the most secluded. It is worth noting this is an unofficial nude beach and there is an ordinance against nudity - however this is not being enforced pending a challenge.
There’s a Visitor Centre but no other facilities so you need to carry everything with you over the dune ramps to the beautiful sandy beach.
The inland side of Playalinda Beach is a lagoon called Eddy Creek. It’s good for kayaking and there’s a short observation pier for spotting manatees in the shallow waters. The Klondike Beach Trail is a strenuous 13-mile wilderness walk from Titusville to New Smyrna Beach which can be joined from Parking Lot 13. You will need a day permit from the entrance station.
