It is a 10 mile long Beach Break inside a wildlife refuge, so that means that you should bring everything you need for the day. All in all, itrs a beautiful beach and when it is on, the inside can be GREAT!!
unfortunatley since the shore faces E NE south swells from hurricans in the summer stack up and close out once they refract off the cape's point. get the beginning or end of a big swell and you will be pleased, however, the best playa linda is a cold one. winter swells rush down the coast with cold fronts and makes for some cool but fun surf. i'd give this spot a 3-3 1/2 outta 5 in frequency.
Laid Back, just show respect.
Easy to get to and easy to surf when there

Great Beach, lots of it! - Great beach, lots of spots, deserted beach for 20 miles. Mostly a beach break, cross over 5, 6, seem to popular with the locals. The locals are cool here, go have fun!
