Me and my friend had such a great time at Phipps Ocean Park. It was a very windy morning with rough surf and there were lots of different types of plovers hanging around. We saw the Wilson's plover, semipalmated plover and snowy plover. We also saw an osprey dive into the rough surf to catch it's fish. It was so... More

This is a great spot for a larger gathering to have a picnic and a day of fun at the beach! Nearby, you will find the Palm Beach Par 3 golf course, where you can either start or finish your fun-filled day, and also grab a bite on the second floor of the clubhouse, with incredible views of the ocean...

Excellent park and so much to enjoy, love the beach here, some rocks here, but very nice natural look of all. They allow free parking for up to quite a few spaces each morning for a few hours, so a nice perk. Overall, great beach and park.

Yesterday was our second visit to Phipps Ocean Park. The first time we went the water was breathtaking and we spent several hours there so I preloaded 3 hours into the meter (at $5 an hour). We headed to the beach to do some snorkeling but didn't end up seeing anything. An hour in a thunderstorm sent us packing when... More

Go down Route A1A in Palm Beach for the most breathtaking drive along the Ocean. Phipps Park is on the Ocean so it is one of the few places to Park and have a swim. Also there are tennis courts there.

This is the southern most public beach in Palm Beach. It is in the process of being renourished (rebuilt). Life guards are stationed until 6 p.m. There are bathroom facilities behind the dunes and a small playground on the north side of the beach. The one major downside is the parking fee of $5.00 per hour. It's the same fee... More

This is the best location for a quiet tan or swim. The beach is very spacious, almost endless, and there are almost always no more people than the fingers on your hands. Almost nobody goes, and you wonder to yourself why it's been a secret for so long. The only negative is that there are flat, but not dangerous, rocks... More
