A great public beach with lots of parking. There are grill areas, public rest rooms and lifeguards on hand. There are lovely little coral reefs with lots of fish around to snorkel around, the water is clear and there are lots of shells and sometimes sea glass to collect. A lovely walk down to the inlet if you want to... More

I had my daughter's 4th birthday party here and we loved every minute of it!! Lots of tables and grills, just over the bridge to the ocean, and plenty of shade and space to play! I definitely recommend this place to locals and visitors. We are going back today to snorkel on the reef!! :)

So, I took my bestie from Wichita, KS to another beach me and my husband frequent when we lived in the West Palm Beach area 2 years ago. Let's just say that my bestie was in awe with the view, and I was elated to know that nothing has changed in 2 years. I was hoping to see a sea... More

My wife and I spent 2 days here; a couple hours per day. It may be down time there this month, but parking was plentiful. There are bathrooms and out showers to rinse off. There are 2 rock formations where you can snorkel. We saw a lot of different colored fish right off of the beach. Pretty cool. One thing... More

A touch of old unspoiled florida like it used to be before all the development. Great place to bird watch and kayak.

Ocean reef park was absolutely beautiful. The sand was perfect. There were rocks if you would like to snorkel on a calm day.

This beach has a life guard, picnic tables, change room and play area. There is a reef area at the far south end where you can put on a mask and snorkel and see beautiful fish while still standing on bottom! Often pretty shell pieces on the beach.

Stopped here after Phil Foster park so the boys could play in the surf. The park was very clean. The beach has a lifeguard, and plenty of space. There is no erosion, and it was just a great day!

We are part time residents of South Florida and occasionally drive from Boynton Beach to Singer Island to this beach park. It has multiple facilities and the swim area is guarded.
