About this beach

Warnings and hazards

You have to pay for the entrance to the fishing pier.

Fishing requires paying an extra fee.

Deerfield Beach is a seaside community in southeastern Florida that changed its initial name intentionally to let tourists know it has a beach – and this beach is actually pretty good! A long wide stretch of soft sand runs along the scenic blue-water ocean. On the other side, the beach is lined with tall palm trees and grassy areas.

The city’s economy is based on tourism, so this scenic seaside destination is fully equipped with all the necessary facilities to allow you to stay for hours and enjoy your day off without any worries.

Location and Access

Deerfield Beach is located on the Atlantic Ocean in southeastern Florida, just south of Boca Raton. There is a parking lot with a sea view adjacent to the beach (within a very short walking distance).

Beach Facilities

The beach is sufficiently equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas for your convenience. Overall, the area is well-maintained and features enough dustbins, making it easy for visitors to keep it clean. Once you get hungry, you can quickly reach one of the city’s cafes and restaurants, which are within walking distance.

Swimming Conditions

Deerfield Beach is a perfect place to soak up the sun and swim. There are sunbeds to lie on and umbrellas to hide from the sun when it gets scorching. Before coming, you can check relevant weather information on the official website. There are lifeguard stations on the beach so swimming is quite safe.


There is a pier (about 1000 feet) on Deerfield Beach where you can stroll over the water and listen to the waves splashing underneath. Along the pier, you will find benches and picnic tables where you can conveniently sit, have your lunch, and enjoy the sea views. If the sun gets too hot, you can find shelter in a shaded pavilion at the end. The pier is also popular with local fishermen.

Sand Volleyball

If you and your friends are sports enthusiasts, you can make use of one of the nine volleyball nets on the beach. Located north of the pier, they are available on a first-come-first-serve basis for no fee. Amateur, as well as semi-professional tournaments, are held here during the summer months.

Water Sports

Apart from sand volleyball, the beach is ideal for various kinds of water sports including surfing, bodyboarding, snorkeling, and fishing.
