We stayed at the Ocean Lodge, only a few hundred feet from the entrance and walked there during our stay in Boca. It was a beautiful beach with tons of room - not overly crowded. There are wooden chairs available and a local company that rents umbrellas, cushions for the chairs, sells snacks and drinks, and more. The sand isn't... More

We decided to drive A1A - up the coast, and found this awesome place. The parking was $3 an hour, but there were MANY areas covered with shade!!! The beach was peaceful - only about 60 people across a 200 yard stretch of the beach. They have a bathroom and rinsing station and a playground for the kids. Were doing... More

This is my favorite beach in Sourh Florida. It has multiple access points off of Ocean Blvd (Hwy A1A). Catching the sunrise is a particularly rewarding time to walk the beach. The turtle laying season has seen dozens of nests appearing over night. Thi is a special beach

Very nice park! Pay to park. Playground for the kids. Pavilions for BBQ or party, right on the beach. Restrooms and water fountains are close and convenient. The beach is a popular spot for diving or snorkeling. Lifeguard is present. You can walk down the jetty and watch people fish while boats go out to sea or return from sea.... More

Very easy to get to. Go early!! Parking is $4 an hour on weekends and it fills fast. very clean beach as was the bathrooms which is unusual for a public beach. Bring snack and such if you plan on staying for a while. There are no concessions here but they do have grills and great places for the kids... More

Beautiful park with plenty of shade to escape the heat. Parking is a bit steep, at $4 per hour, tho.

We went to this beach on Mothers Day after having brunch with family. Its a very calm beach, not a lot of people like the surrounding beaches. Lots of parking, and plenty of space to put your chairs and umbrellas. We really enjoyed the beach, just sitting there and taking in the beautiful day. It wasnt a hot Florida day,so... More

This little pocket of park just south of the Boca Inlet reminds me of how the Boca Beaches use to be. Quiet, nice trees and tropical foliage. The metered parking is nice for just a morning swim or snorkel. There are lovely little reefs just off shore, lots of pretty fish and an occasional grazing sea turtle or leopard ray.... More

This little gem is less populated because it is Boca's southernmost stretch of beach, south of the Boca Inlet. Lovely sand, clear clean water. Not too crowded. Plenty of parking, if you can find the entrance off A1A.

Small mostly local, un-crowded and excellent space and views. Avoid the mobs of the better known beaches and spend a day relaxing.
