The Palm Beaches have some of the best, most beautiful beaches in the country, and they’re great for the whole family. Here are 3 of our favorites.

DuBois Park

DuBois Park is a South Florida gem located on the southern edge of the Jupiter Inlet. DuBois has fantastic views of the Jupiter Lighthouse. Jet skiers and boaters can start their trip through the Intracoastal Waterway or out to sea, right from the marina slips. Canoe and kayak adventurers can paddle to the Loxahatchee River, one of only two national Wild & Scenic Rivers in Florida. At DuBois there are public bathrooms available, as well as small grills for cooking. Best of all, the calm swimming area is great for kids, and parents will appreciate how easy it is to keep track of little ones.

Waterway Park is a great place to explore Palm Beach County’s diverse marine life, the park includes over 30,000 cubic yards of waste material brought up during the course of an excavation or dredging.
