It also has a wonderful park complete with terrific views cabanas with barbecue pits and acres of park to play in. The park is also the home to one of the first single room... More

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

At the beach, there are always a variety of activities to do. Sit quietly and enjoy the elements of nature, read a book or take a snooze. Of course, sun screen is recommended. Do keep an eye on your parking meter because a ticket will cost you!

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
