“Stunning Beach with Shells, Loads of Conch Shells”

Atlantic Dunes Park
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed September 24, 2013

This beach is absolutely stunning! Gorgeous tropical plants on edge of the dunes. The water was crystal clear and like bath water in August, and we saw many beautiful colorful fish as well as a ray. The beach is wider and the sand more of a beige gray due to the recent dregging. I found about 100 shells, many conch and olive shells along the seashore and in the sand. I believe these are also a result of the recent sand dregging. Still, they were pretty spectacular! Like being in paradise!

Our sons recently moved to Delray Beach so we visited and decided to check out the beach. The main con to this beach (and frankly most others on the east coast of South Florida) is the parking. It is across A1A, and costs $1.50 per hr, which is reasonable, but given the size of the beach, come "season" there will never be enough parking. However, there were ample spots today, in August on a weekend. The wooden walkway winds thru the mangroves and is shaded and pretty. There are restroom facilities, picnic tables, trash and recycling bins, and a bike rack. There are also umbrellas and chairs for rent. The pleasant surprise was the size of the beach.......HUGE! There is also a lifeguard on duty. This is the beach to go to in Delray!

Easily accessible bathrooms, abundant parking, wide beaches make this a wonderful place to pat down your blanket and enjoy Delray's wonderful beach.

If you want to avoid the crowds at Delray Beach's main public beach where Atlantic Avenue meets the ocean, go south about two miles. This park has a shelter, picnic tables, easy beach access, and fewer people.

Beautiful surroundings, pleasant environment and just a nice place to stroll but you need to do this under the trees.
