“Nice Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

What I like best about this beach is the system of living reefs so close to the shore. This means that small children can strap on a scuba mask and see some wonderful marine life: sergeant majors, squirrel fish, parrot fish, and more. What a treat, all at just a few feet deep.

“Love this park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

Plenty of facilities available for families. 2 playgrounds, tons of picnic shelters, picnic tables, grills, a boardwalk, lifeguards, and a great beach. In the afternoon, parts of the beach can even have shade from the higher dunes. Tip: Get a Boca Beach sticker if you plan to go often.

“Crystal clear water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2013

A little pricey to park. 18.00 non resident on the weekend. Beach is clean with plenty of lifeguards. Water was impressively crystal clear so you could see schools of fish all around you. If you snorkel near the man made reef you will spot some more exotic and colorful fish. Beach is well maintained.
Will definitely return.

“Not for snorkelling anymore”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Went there thinking it was a good place to snorkel. Was i wrong. Parking was $16, that we knew about and didnt mind. Taught that it was a fun and cheap way to do an activity with the kids. There is nothing to see other then a man made rock. All was gone with an hurricane 10 years ago. We stayed for about 1 hours and left, very disappointed

“A great place to spend any amount of time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

Red Reef Park is one of those places that you find and can't go back enough times. The beach is beautiful and very seldom busy. The park offers plenty of parking and nice facilities. So if you are looking for a quiet place to sit by the ocean and read a book or a place to have a family picnic give Red Reef Park a try.
