they have people watching the clock to ticket you in one minute after the free park sign expires, and the free park is only for people who play tennis... this must change and they must have some other amenities if they want to charge 60 ticket -- Did not like to see an officer seating there for hours waiting for...

This is a great option to avoid the crowds of Lake Worth beach or the more northern Palm Beach beaches. Yes parking isn't cheap and must be carefully watched to avoid tickets. But it's a lovely place. The shore here is a mix between rocky and sandy beach. It's a great place to bring mask and look for at fish.

Great spot for the beach but beware of the parking. You have to,pay and they ticket you right away. So make sure you do and you will enjoy the beach!! No food so bring your own

Very nice beach. Some rocks close to shore but nice views and very near deserted. There is a fee for parking.

This is a well run welcoming place. The tennis offers many options, including mixers for people looking to play doubles with others.

There is little sand left on portions of the beach, and most of the entrances are closed since the stairs are gone. Lake Worth beach (1 mi south) is still ok.

Great amenities, picnic benches and spacious parking lot, all adds up to a great day out at the beach. There is easy access to the beach at a point at which I understand there is a lifeguard. Necessary given the unpredictable rip currents in this area.

We do love this beach park for a picnic. There is always convenient parking, maybe because of its fairly hefty parking fee, but worth it if you want a less crowded beach. The park is lovely, with great old trees, barbecue pits, and plenty of shade. This part of the beach is quite rocky, though, so be sure to bring... More

We have been going to Phipps Beach for years. It is a quiet, peaceful place to sit in your beach chair and enjoy the ocean.

This is a great beach to visit, especially if you go earlier in the day (around 10:00am) because there is barely anyone else there. They also have free parking at the back of the parking lot (free for 2 hours between the hours of 8am and noon). Lifeguards are super friendly too! The rocks that someone else posted about are...
