When you’re done at the beach, make your over to the Turtle Cafe for a bite to eat.


  1. Ocean Ridge Hammock Park

600 feet of guarded beach in a prime, chill spot. There are pavilions (first come first served), barbecue grills, a boat slip, canoe and kayak access, fishing, a jetty, a playground, restrooms and showers. They’ve got everything you need for a perfect day at the beach. Parking is free.


  1. Gulfstream Park

Almost 7 full acres of beachfront park. A boardwalk will take you to the clean and well-maintained beach. There’s a shallow reef just offshore that is great for snorkeling. You can fish, grab a picnic table and grill out, play on the playground, surf or just relax. Restrooms and showers. Parking is free.


  1. Phipps Ocean Park

A hidden gem of a beach. It has two entrances with the Phipps Tennis Center between them. Grab a picnic table or a cabana and fire up the grill. It has lots of trees for shade and a great playground for the kids. Parking is $5/hour unless you are using the tennis center.
