The beach is narrow with few parking spots. A couple streets away are signs showing free parking with an arrow pointing down the side streets. But be aware, they only apply to about 2 spots, when another mini sign says "permit parking" with another arrow pointing the rest of the way down the street. So basically, its gonna cost you about $15 in parking to visit this beach. My opinion is just to skip this one, and let the meter maids flirt with the lifeguards.

I love Palm Beach and grew up here barefoot on the beach. However, if you don't live here with a home to walk to for lunch you will be sorely disappointed. There are neither restaurants nor restrooms so if you have children you will be very frustrated. For more "family" fun head south a couple of bridges to the Lake Worth Bridge and go to their beaches where you will find very fun restaurants, live music, restrooms, showers to wash off the sand, and little ocean shopping boutiques. Parking is abundant.

Mid-town municipal beach is wonderful. The sand is surprisingly soft, even more so than some Caribbean beaches I have gone to. The water is clear-ish...with a nice sandbar during low tide. During sunrise and sunset, you can see fish. Speaking of marine wildlife, I don't know when the beach closes but DONT GO IN THE WATER PAST FIVE. That's when the sharks (10,000 of them in December) come out to feed. One way to tell when to get out (if you don't have a watch) is to look at the seagulls in the distance. When they all begin to land on the water and flock, that means the fish are out, to also feed. The seagulls aren't the only things trying to catch the fish. I have even seen sharks jump out of the water last year, plucking seagulls out of the sky (at the breakers). I'm not a shark expert but they're not great whites or hammerheads. They're blacktip (which are still dangerous) and spinners, with the small chance of seeing a tiger shark or bull shark. There tend not to be a lot of people during some days, so watch out for nude topless people....because we saw a couple.

The beach had so much seaweed it was really disgusting. It was difficult to find the entrance.
The parking was $5 per hour.
Yes, there's free parking on the northernmost side street but seriously the beach is quite a walk from there and not much better than other beaches.

The Mid-town beach in Palm Springs is well maintained and quite accessible. There's street parking right along opposite it and just be sure to enter your license-plate particulars when you feed the machine [payment boxes spaced along the sidewalk]. There aren't any public services, restaurants, bars, etc., on the beach, so, bring your own.

great sandy beach, clean and easy to access. Parking is a pain. Bring your own beverages, beach chairs and umbrellas as city does not allow local vendors to do so.

Mid-Town Municipal Beach is a typical Florida beach located on the Atlantic Ocean. The problem with this beach is that parking is a hassle and the town does not allow vendors to set beach chairs and umbrellas ( you must bring your own ). Jolly Chris.

This beach is in mid-town Palm Beach. It stretches from the Breakers Hotel & Resort and continues south to just south of Worth Avenue. It has lifeguard stations and public restrooms. After strong Northeast winds there might be some erosion but that's nature. Parking is by meter and expensive. Most streets west of the beach are restricted to residents of those streets. and they have permits. There is an aggressive parking control unit within the Police Dept.

A Gorgeous Beach ~ But Expensive to Park Nearby

The landmark for the Midtown Municipal Beach is the Clock Tower where the famous Worth Avenue meets South Ocean Blvd.

A gorgeous beach to take a long walk on @ Sunset ~ the azure water glistens & the sound of the waves is perfect. You can choose from the sandy beach or a paved walkway above the concrete fence next to the street.

Convenient street parking in both directions. Parking is $5 per hour. There is a minimum of 2 hours / $10. Do not let the meter expire ~ the Meter Hounds are out in droves, here & everywhere in PB.

Note that hundreds of previously-Free public side-street spaces have recently been converted to permit parking only.

I took off 1* because there are nearby beaches with less expensive parking fees, & a few miles away there are beach parks with Free Parking.

Generic beach. "$5" an hour metered parking. Not! I forgot my Rolls! Forgot to mention the special sand brought in from the Rivierra!
