This place tends not to get too busy. The only issue can be the parking and make sure you pay or you will get a ticket! Nice for a family but bring your shade or you will get fried all year !

This is the perfect beach to relax. Quiet, not loaded kind of private beach. Parking is 4.00$ or 5.00$ per hour so a little expensive. There is restroom in the parking. There is no accomodations, you can do picnic there in family. Very very clean!

A very pleasant and beautiful location with life guards on the beach. Well kept and clean. Parking is the only challenge on a busy day.

I went to many beaches in Palm beach area but this one is one of few well maintained beaches. You can snorkle here and see a lot of colorful fishes. plus after 6 pm parking is free and watching sunset is awsome.

We really enjoyed this beach. It is so laid back and beautiful. The waters were a bit choppy. I could have stayed alllllll day. The huts at the top of the hill were nice. We picked lots of seashells.
