South Beach Park

Map & Directions

South Beach Park is located on A1A at the south end of Boca Raton. The outcrop extends for 0.3 miles (0.5 km) to the south from the parking area. Smaller ledges are
found in the surf zone. Bioturbation from both small and large burrows is present, as well as solution pits. Both planar bedding and herringbone cross-bedding can be found.
