Atlantic Dunes Park has short nature trails, clean water, beautiful sand and outstanding swimming. The police and lifeguards who patrol the park are quite friendly and provide a comfortable atmosphere of safety. However there is one thing that detracts from all of these positives, the beach, unlike other further south in Boca Raton allows smoking. We had the disgusting experience... More

Our visit to the Atlantic Dunes Park was on New Years Day 2014. After finding a place to park and paying (1.50/hr) we made our way to the beach. It is a little walk so we didn't pack too much to carry. The beach is big enough that you can find your own little piece of sand and spread out.... More

Nice local beach with lifeguards and well posted signs for surf and jelly fish etc. Go early in season or the parking lots fill up quickly and you would have to park over the Intracoastal and walk over.

This beach is absolutely stunning! Gorgeous tropical plants on edge of the dunes. The water was crystal clear and like bath water in August, and we saw many beautiful colorful fish as well as a ray. The beach is wider and the sand more of a beige gray due to the recent dregging. I found about 100 shells, many conch... More

Our sons recently moved to Delray Beach so we visited and decided to check out the beach. The main con to this beach (and frankly most others on the east coast of South Florida) is the parking. It is across A1A, and costs $1.50 per hr, which is reasonable, but given the size of the beach, come "season" there will... More

If you want to avoid the crowds at Delray Beach's main public beach where Atlantic Avenue meets the ocean, go south about two miles. This park has a shelter, picnic tables, easy beach access, and fewer people.

Beautiful surroundings, pleasant environment and just a nice place to stroll but you need to do this under the trees.

This is a convenient beach park with paid parking at a reasonable price. It features a nice, shaded area with bench seating if you need a break from the sun and well maintained rest room facility with outdoor shower (not for full shower, just to get the sand off). You can rent beach chairs, umbrella and an upgraded two seater... More

There is so much sand here now that they have replenished the beach. Very impressive and easy to find a quiet place, though a long walk to the shore!
