With warmer weather on the way, it’s time to hit the beach! Here are a few of the best places to hit the water in the Palm Beaches.
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.
Coral Cove Park
Coral Cove Park is one of Palm Beach County’s northern-most beaches in the county and one cannot be missed. If you enjoy a quieter beach but still want the benefit of great snorkeling and paddleboarding, this is the place. Right at the shore to several hundred yards out - just look for the darker shapes in the water - it is the rocks around which the fish swim. This is a The Palm Beaches must-see.
Phil Foster Park
Phil Foster Park is a 14.7-acre beach park nestled along the Lake Worth Lagoon, just north of the Palm Beach Inlet. The park is known as a great fishing spot and has a nice playground. What Phil Foster is best known for is a man-made snorkeling trail that winds around the south end of the island and near the pilings of the Blue Heron Bridge. While the full trail is intended for stronger swimmers, the beach access is great for kids wanting to wade around closer to shore.
