Very Nice beach, washrooms available if you want to change yourselves. Fresh water showers outside. They also rent chairs and sunbrella. I even saw a rooster fish hunting 15 feet from the beach !

The only downfall of this beach is the limited parking situation during peak season. However, it is superbly located, a very short walk from the parking lot, and simply beautiful. Extremely clean beach to swim, walk on and just relax. It is not crowded especially in comparison to the beaches south and Delray Beach at Atlantic Blvd and A1A. If... More

Great beach, always clean and enjoyable. You can stay to the north which is guarded or stroll 20 yards south where is it unguarded and no worries if you want to fish, play Frisbee, or most anything else.

It may sound funny but I love Delray Beach for everything it isn't as much for what it is. It isn't Miami Beach, etc. It's a beautiful, comfortable and easily accessible beach in its own rite...

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

Easily accessible bathrooms, abundant parking, wide beaches make this a wonderful place to pat down your blanket and enjoy Delray's wonderful beach.
