Fodor's Review

About 2 miles south of "Billionaire's Row" on Ocean Boulevard sits this public oceanside park, with two metered parking lots separated by a fire station. There are four entry points to the beach, but the north side is better for beachgoers. At the southern entrance, there is a six-court tennis facility. The beach is narrow and has natural rock formations dotting the shoreline, making it ideal for snorkelers. There are picnic tables and grills on-site, as well as the Little Red Schoolhouse, an 1886 landmark that hosts educational workshops for local kids. If a long walk floats your boat, venture north to see the mega-mansions, but don't go too far inland, because private property starts at the high-tide line. Parking is metered, and time limits strictly enforced. There's a 2-hour time limit for free parking—but read the meter carefully, it's valid only during certain hours at some spots. Amenities: parking (free); toilets; showers; lifeguards. Best for: walking; solitude.
