This is a gorgerous park! Lovely trails and picnic areas, but the highlight is the beach with crystal clear, shallow water ideal for snorkeling.

Here's a tip- it is $20 to park here, but you can park across the street at a city golf course for $3 an hour.

FISHING SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED AT RED REEF PARK
Apr 2021 • Friends
it's a beautiful place, but is very sad to see so many people fishing and destroy that beautiful reef. Fishing should not be allowed in that place, it is very sad and frustrating to see the amount of people after 5:00 pm. who meet up for fishing and killing all those beautiful fish. After enjoying snorkeling seeing all those beautiful fish, you leave with infinite sadness to see how they take out these beautiful fish in heaps with fishing nets. Very, very sad. FISHING SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED AT RED REEF PARK!!!

Beautiful place

Great for walking (there is a boardwalk adjoining the park) and a no-smoking beach! Plenty of parking.

What a beautiful place ruined by the amount of people fishing and killing those beautiful fish... One person stating, "I'm going to give it to the park workers to eat" ... The appeal of this beach is to enjoy the ocean life... not witness them being killed for the workers to eat.. totally ruined any confidence I had in the people working there caring about the ocean life.
I also picked up some much fishing line and hooks... its a real shame such a beautiful place is allowed to be ruined by those only interested in killing and littering...

Wonderful beach
Oct 2020
Red Reef Beach is an amazing place to go with family and friends and have a day to relax.I go almost every weekend and every time the water is crystal clear and there's hundreds of fish to watch. There aren't a lot of people in the morning, so it would definitely be the best time to go. There is also places to have a picnic or barbecue next to the beach.

An Amazing Beach!
Sep 2020
Red Reef Park is genuinely a nice beach. I go almost every weekend and the water was clear as day. There aren't too many people in the mornings, and the restaurants surrounding the beach are open mostly all day. This beach is great for families of all size and age!

Crystal clear Water!!
Sep 2020
If you are in the Boca Raton area and have a day to relax, I highly recommend going to Red Reef Park and having a beach day. It is kind of like its own little bubble being it is situated only a 60-75 min north of the Miami hustle and bustle. The beach is very clean and the beach workers you could tell really care about the environment. For people who enjoy snorkeling, this place is probably the best in the Palm Beach, Broward area, and probably Boca's best beach. For my walkers, there are beautiful trails on the intercoastal which is directly across the street. All in Red Reef Park with turquoise blue waters is the place to be.

Great for kids
Aug 2020 • Family
The reef is so close to the beach it's great for the kids to play near it all day long. Lifeguards are very observant. Great for parents to read a book and not worry about your children. Water is super clear and there's hundreds off fish to watch. Bring a scuba mask!!!!!!

Lots of fish, but relatively crowded and the water wasn't very clear
Aug 2020
We visited on a Sunday not long after Hurricane Isaias went north just off shore. Based on other suggestions here, we parked in the lot on the other side of Highway A1A rather than pay the relatively outrageous price for a days admission to the park.

We saw lots of different kinds of fish, but due to the number of people and the amount of silt that had been stirred up in the water, we could only see what was very close.

We'll probably do another visit here on a weekday to see if the visibility and crowding is better.

Could of been nice on a better weather day
Aug 2020 • Family
Cloudy, rainy conditions along with the ocean being stirred from passing tropical system prevented any visibility in the water surrounding the reef. As previous reviews stated, it is wise to park across the street and pay by meter!
