Since my posting here, they created more free parking spaces. It is no longer for people who play tennis, as it used to be, but also for visitors. We have 2 hours free parking, and it is awesome.

A great place to walk the boardwalk, having lunch at Benny's on the Beach, or do a little souvenir beach shopping. A plublic beach with a lot of parking.

We visited the park on a Sunday to shell the pile. I have been shelling for 30 years & have never seen a pile of shells like this. We had an exciting day & brought home many treasures. The following Sunday we were joined by 4 of my family members. They also had a great time & enjoyed the hunt.... More

The ocean park is a fine beach, although it is somewhat high off the water's edge, so built because of the constant erosion from steady East winds. It has perhaps a half-dozen excellent tennis courts, with lessons available. Plenty of parking, first two hours free in the morning, which is primarily for the benefit of the tennis contingent. It is... More

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.
