At the end of happening E. Palmetto Park Rd is a roundabout with one-hour parking and a raised pavilion above the beach. It's nice to park and then stand in the shade of the pavilion and watch the happy goings-on at the beach. Feel the breeze and enjoy the sight of the blue-green water. You can walk north for a mile on a shady path between the various beach parking lots and the sand. You pass many beach boardwalk entrances. Gorgeous seagrape trees and banyan trees arch over you. You end up at Red Reef Beach Park.

It's wonderful to get a mango milk tea with tropical popping boba at Black Pearl Boba Tea 2, and then walk two minutes to the beach while you sip your tea! Bliss! I want to do this again asap! In the afternoon the walk to the beach is shady. Other stores in that same shopping plaza on East Palmetto Park Road are Sprinkles Ice Cream and Playa Bowls, an acai bowl place. 
Another nice spot, over the bridge on the mainland, is Silver Palm Park, a small park with benches on the intracoastal waterway.
