About this beach

Warnings and hazards

Parking is scarce – arrive early to get a space.

There may be riptides – consult the lifeguards before going into the water.

Gulfstream Park offers a beautiful quiet beach with free entrance and all necessary amenities away from big crowds. It’s a place to escape from the big city and fully relax at the seaside for a few hours.

Location and Access

You can find Gulfstream Park at 4489 North Ocean Boulevard in close proximity to Delray Beach. Parking is free but scarce and it can be really difficult and frustrating to find a parking spot in high season (which is in winter), so it’s better to arrive early in the morning – in that case, you will even get a chance to park under the trees. The entrance is free as well, which is a rarity for a beach with well-maintained amenities and operating lifeguard station.

Amenities

The beach features well-maintained facilities such as restrooms and outdoor showers, where you can rinse the sand off your body. There is also a playground for little visitors. If you like picnics, you can make use of a spacious shaded picnic area with tables and grills.

If you forget to bring enough water, don’t worry – there is a soft drink dispenser, which accepts credit cards. And if you get hungry, you can go about 200 meters north of the parking area to buy sandwiches.

Beware that there are no sunbeds or umbrellas on the beach, so bring your own ones, but there are benches to sit down and enjoy the views or plunge into a good book.

Swimming Conditions

The sandy beach is quite spacious. The water is clear enough for snorkeling. There are some rocks at the bottom, but not too many. The ocean can be calm or rough depending on the weather. The beach features a lifeguard station, so you can feel safe in the water. However, sometimes there are riptide currents, so it’s better to consult the lifeguards before having a swim.

Naturist Recreation

This beach is widely recognized to be clothing optional but it’s not official yet, so it’s better to keep a cover-up handy if you decide to sunbathe and swim nude. Overall, it’s a great place to relax au naturel and naturists are regular visitors here.

Wildlife

During the turtle season, sea turtles come to this beach to lay their eggs and you can find their marked nests – please be careful with them. And of course, there is a chance to see little hatchlings making their way from the nest to the water!
