Red Reef and Spanish River Parks are great access to the Atlantic. Always clean, and usually manageable parking and people on the beach - I prefer the nicer people working the gate at Spanish River.

We liked it. Only draw back was the seaweed or brown weed stuff that grows there. It was spring break so kinda busy.

The park was really nice enjoyable for a families birthday. We had a picnic table by the trees and the beach wasn't overcrowded and it was very family oriented. The only thing I'd complain about was the $18 parking.

Bring your own snorkling gear, guaranteed to see some great Florida reef fish/life. last time I went I saw live squid off the man made reefs that were pulsating iridescent color waves....extraordinary!!!

Even though we happened onto this beautiful ocean side park on a VERY windy day, we were delighted to be able to walk along the wide sandy beach for a little while and then explore the well built boardwalks that meandered along the thickly wooded dunes. There were plenty of picnic tables, bathrooms and a playground for the kids to... More

Parking across the street, along the inter-coastal is only $2 an hour or you can park in front, but it's $16. Beautiful beach with a park setting. New boardwalks go through some pretty Florida nature. Setup for BBQ's, covered areas, a playground. One of the many beautiful beaches in Boca Raton. Oceanside Co. rents out umbrellas, and small gazebos to... More

We stopped by the red reef beach park while in town for a family wedding. There is inexpensive parking across the street (by the hour) or you can pay $18 for the day. We opted to park across the street. The park has nice picnic area and public bathrooms. Over the boardwalk is a nice beach with lifeguards on duty.... More

Being a resident of Boca Raton, I have a beach pass. It's a great value. This is a long section of beautiful beach shoreline.

Red Reef Park is a very nice park on the beach with plenty of picnic tables in the shade, restrooms and easy access to the beach. You pay one flat fee to park, so to make it worth your while, plan to stay for awhile.

Red Reef Park is my favorite beach in Boca! I never have to worry about finding a parking spot and then having to walk another mile to actually get to the beach.
