Return visit after a year: loved it so much, went twice

Although we did not try to swim this year, we loved the beach. It's beautiful, and powerful experience of nature, with the waves crashing. We went in late afternoon--it was... read more

Parking but get there early, its busy. Lots of clean sand but its tan so bring the flee spray along with the sun tan lotion. Birds but little wild life, the water has shallow areas where you can wade out to see the fish. Usually the weather is perfect but its still hard to snorkel because of the wind and... More

We loved the beach, fantastic sand, waves, etc. Great stretch of beach. Supposedly some snorkeling off beach, but there is barely anything to see, so if that is your intention, forget about it. Maybe once upon a time there was good snorkeling, but not any more.

Very nice and clean beach. Shallow waters. Good shelling too. On a calm day, you can snorkel next to the rocks. Unfortunately, our time there, the waves were too big. You can also park across from the Park in a public parking lot (paid meters) and save some $$$.

Another lovely beach. $16 to park. Snorkeling by lifeguard stand #9. This is marked in parking lot. You can park for $5 across street at golf course. Found a giant great white shark tooth, a blue button, purple storm shells, Portuguese man o wars, lots of coral types.

This is a typical public beach. It is crowded on weekends and quieter during the week. There are supposed to be no dogs on the beach but the lifeguards don't enforce this so you will either step in it or smell/see it. I have even seen pitfalls here. If you have no other beach to go to, then try this... More

shower room very close to beach. $16.00 to park on weekdays. Really no other parking without a long walk. Guards on beach and not too spread out. bring snacks and drinks but don't litter.

We went to the beach at night to watch the second night of the super moon. Picked up a pizza at CostCo and headed to the park. Nice convenient parking, and well maintained lighted walkways and places to sit. Spent an enjoyable evening with the family eating our pizza and watching the moon. Very few people in the park after... More

This place is amazing. The water is clear and kinda shallow. Great for snorkeling and swimming. You can also walk the trails that are along the beaches. We will def be back next time we come to town

A short distance from downtown Boca and just south of Highland Park is nestled a perfect little beach called Red Reef. We can only imagine the name comes from the coloring on the artist's palette, but on a warm, sunny day as December approaches, this is as close as it gets to paradise.
