I’ve ordered a real DSLR finally but for the moment, you have more point and shoot glory for your viewing pleasure. Playalinda is one of our favorite beaches around here due to the more remote nature of it. Typically it has only locals which is a good thing. Being located in a national park there are no services at all except for latrine style bathrooms.
There are only a couple things not perfect here. The abundance of fishermen is the first. They are nice but their lines and hooks can be a nuisance. The other is parking lot 13. Somehow that area at the end of the long beach has become an unofficial clothing optional beach. It doesn’t seem like its an issue for those that don’t want it, they stay in their own area, but still, we don’t push our luck.
