There are many wonderful beaches along the Atlantic coastline of Merritt Island, Florida. Playalinda is one of these beaches. It is part of the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge and is maintained by the U. S. Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. There is a fee charged to use this beach but there are passes (military, senior, etc.) that will allow unlimited free access to the beach. On a windy January day the beach is populated for the most part by people leisurely walking the beach and enjoying the sea air. Very peaceful even with the rough surf. A natural beauty!
