Red Reef Beach Park is a beautiful narrow beach with an adorable green-roofed lifeguard shack tucked up against the dunes. There are plenty of families playing in the sand or taking walks. The park leading to the sand has an abundance of coconut trees and banyan trees, with picnic tables and walking paths. It's lovely to hang out on the beach enjoying the gorgeous soft breeze and the inviting blue-green water. 

You can take a shady walking path under the seagrape trees for a mile to South Beach from here. 
This beach park really shocks you with its price to enter! Boca Raton residents have a pass so they don't pay the high fee. Avoid the fee by parking across the street in the golf course's public parking lot, which has pay stations and is available for beachgoers. Come early to find a spot.
From this beach park you can walk to Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, a great place to see fish in tanks under an impressive wooden gazebo. This center also has a nature trail with a wooden tower but I don't recommend it unless it's a very cold day because there are many mosquitoes.
