There is plenty of room on this beach on the south side of the island to spread out and not feel overwhelmed by the crowds. Beautiful blue water, and lots of sand. There are restroom facilities available. You may have to pay for parking, but I really haven't found any place on the island where parking is free.

Easy access to a great sandy beach. Parking is free for 2 hours for some of the spaces, and $5/hr for the rest. Friendly and helpful life guards to answer questions for a flatlander about the rip currents and man-o-war warnings up when the wind is strong from the east. Been there 4 times, on good swimming days and poor.... More

BEWARE:: Free Parking is only from 8-10am The beautiful large stretch of beach @ Phipps Ocean Park is not usually crowded, as a result of the previous brouhaha between the Town & the non-club-member Tennis Players who park there. The result was Free Parking in the Tennis Center Lot from 8-10am. Who gets to the beach that early? This amounted... More

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!

Don't go for the beach.. yes it is nice but $5 for one hour parking.. no way! Go for the rare and beautiful leucistic squirrel. If you are lucky you will see them: they are white and two live on the trees in the park. Best time for viewing between 4 and 5 pm.

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.
