This was an unexpected break. There were few people, the weather was pleasant, and the water was clearer than most beaches. Parking was an affordable $2.00 per hour across the street, and for a walk two hours is plenty of time.

The Red Reef Park is a wonderful place to visit with any age. From young kids exploring the fish on the reef, to teens relaxing on the sand. Red Reef Park is a park for anyone.

Parking sucks and is expensive, but otherwise this is such a great beach, never overly crowded, always clean.

For the price of $18 you get a beach that is wall to wall seaweed. No snorkeling or swimming. I would suggest you at least call before wasting your time or money.

Red Reef Park offers a great intro to snorkeling experience and a safe place for small kids to splash around and see fish. If you aren't a resident with a beach sticker, you can pay up to 18$ to park, but the lot is shaded,...More

If you want to avoid the high parking fee you can park for free down near Palmetto Park and walk down but beware it's a hike. The park facilities are nice and almost fully shaded so your car stays cool on the hot days. Just...More

Sorry would not know answer to that. Try contacting the town hall. Assume the town owns it. If not they can tell you if state does and who to call

The best Place to park is across the street from Red Reef. All day parking at red reef is around $17. But you can park across the street and pay hourly if you don't plan to stay all day it's much cheaper
