About this beach

Warnings and hazards

It’s better to arrive early in high season to get a good parking space.

Located just two miles north of the Merrill P. Barber Bridge, Jaycee Park is a well-maintained public beach park with plenty of free parking, a large beach area, lifeguards, picnic tables and grills, restroom facilities and water fountains. It’s a family-friendly ADA-accessible place, which rarely gets overcrowded.

Location and Access

The beach is located at 4200 Ocean Drive in Vero Beach and is open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Entrance is free. Parking is also free so you can guess it’s better to arrive early on busy summer days (another reason to do that is the opportunity to get one of the shaded parking spaces). In addition to the park’s parking lot, you can also find parking along Ocean Drive.

Facilities

Jaycee Park is a well-maintained and family-friendly recreational area equipped with all basic amenities including restrooms, outdoor showers, changing facilities, covered picnic areas with tables and grills – bring your favorite food and have lunch in the fresh air near the ocean! There is a small restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating where you can eat if you arrive early enough (breakfast or lunchtime).

For sports enthusiasts, there are sand volleyball courts. If you have children with you, bring them to the playground with swings and slides in the back area. The beach is ADA accessible – it features ramps instead of stairs.

Beach Access

The beach is quite narrow and the high tide covers a great deal of the sand area leaving not so much space for plentiful visitors in high season. Overall, the sand is clean but be aware that during the turtle-nesting season, the beach is not cleared of the seaweed so it can accumulate to a considerable amount.

The water is clean and clear, blue and green in color – very inviting! For the safety of the visitors, Jaycee Park has an announcement board informing on the current water status and lifeguards on duty from 9:20 a.m. to 4:40 p.m.

Other Activities

There is a long oceanfront boardwalk with measured distances running from the park down the entire length of Ocean Drive, which is a perfect place to stroll, enjoy the ocean views, and watch seabirds flying by (there are plenty of pelicans). It is also good for some beachside exercise.
