“Sandy took a lot of the beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

There is little sand left on portions of the beach, and most of the entrances are closed since the stairs are gone.

Lake Worth beach (1 mi south) is still ok.

“Lovely way to get to the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Great amenities, picnic benches and spacious parking lot, all adds up to a great day out at the beach. There is easy access to the beach at a point at which I understand there is a lifeguard. Necessary given the unpredictable rip currents in this area.

“Nice park for a picnic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

We do love this beach park for a picnic. There is always convenient parking, maybe because of its fairly hefty parking fee, but worth it if you want a less crowded beach. The park is lovely, with great old trees, barbecue pits, and plenty of shade. This part of the beach is quite rocky, though, so be sure to bring beach shoes.

“Nice beach but due to construction has become hard to assess.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

We have been going to Phipps Beach for years. It is a quiet, peaceful place to sit in your beach chair and enjoy the ocean.

“Beautiful Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2012

This is a great beach to visit, especially if you go earlier in the day (around 10:00am) because there is barely anyone else there. They also have free parking at the back of the parking lot (free for 2 hours between the hours of 8am and noon). Lifeguards are super friendly too! The rocks that someone else posted about are there, but there is still plenty of beach without them. They are great if you want to snorkel and look at all kinds of fish around them too! We love it!
