Midtown Beach, Palm Beach, Palm Beach FL

Description

Midtown Beach is about as good as it gets! Here, where blissful Worth Avenue meets the ocean, you'll find a salmon-pink wave wall with white trim. A pedestrian path runs for miles along the wall, with stunning water views. A classic clocktower with arched window perfectly frames the beach view.
There are several breaks in the wave wall where you can walk to the sand. Here you will find a delightful beach with clearest water, clean lovely sand, and little waves. Fashionable, young people congregate here to soak up the sun. Rocks placed at intervals along the shore give the beach some shape. The view of the coconut trees lining Ocean Blvd is lovely from the water. There are lifeguards but no restrooms. Parking is expensive- about $5 an hour along Ocean Blvd. You can park for free if you're lucky in the few stalls on the side streets such as Brazilian Ave (1 hr only).

There tend to be a lot of sharks at this beach January- March when they are migrating north and looking for food along the coast, so be careful.
