Boca Raton's coast is known for its most priceless treasure: a two mile stretch of lifeguard protected beaches. This pristine beach area, isolated and serene, provides recreational use for the thousands who wish to spend time at the ocean or enjoying the various sand dunes spotted with sea oats and sea grapes.
Lifeguards staff the beach 7 days a week, year-round, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST and from 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. DST.
For those wanting to watch the waves “live” before heading to the beach area, a high-resolution, time-lapse system webcam is located at South Beach Park Pavilion (East Palmetto Park Road and A1A). Information is provided regarding beach conditions, water temperatures and weather reports via weather station WS1080, with updates every few minutes.
For physically challenged beachgoers, beach wheel chairs are available. Please speak to a Gate Attendant upon arrival.
