Even though this was the public beach, it was just as nice as the 2 private beaches I visited during my stay. It was not that crowded for a public beach and had a restaurant and changing area nearby.

Really enjoyed our morning walks. We didn't have enough time for swimming on this trip, but hope to try again sometime. Beach appeared to be nicely maintained by the city.

Awesome beach with life guards, chair/umbrella rentals and close to bathrooms. The mangrove is gorgeous! Unfortunately it was cut back drastically last year but it is growing back slowly.

We walked on the beach and love it. Too bad there was red tide so we couldn't swim or stick our toes in the water. We saw very few people at the beach which was surprising.

I love this beach. It has decent waves during south florida surf season. And its relatively close to bars and restaurants for an afternoon snack.

As it is difficult in Boca Raton to go to the beach without paying a lot for parking, just North is Delray Municipal Beach. Parking is available curbside with meters and if you park a few blocks away its free.

Delray Beach is beautiful and long. Very very long so you have plenty of beach to claim as your own little spot for the day. If you don't arrive before 10am it might be difficult to find parking. Could always use a rideshare service to/from...More

This is a large public beach with life guards. Parking is primary on the street and was not expensive. The water and shoreline has what I would call sea-weed (horticulturists would call, it something else) and it lines the shores and the waters edge. To...More

Dogs are not allowed on Delray Beach. If you want your dog to enjoy the beach it is best to go to inlet beach in Boynton Beach just up A1A about 3 miles or so. Walk to the north side of the inlet and use that beach which was... More
