Blowing Rocks Preserve is like no other beach along the Florida Atlantic coast. Sandy beach is complimented by unique geological rock formations. Waves interact with these natural structures to produce a beautiful geyser show in some areas, and if you come here on a calm day you can see lots of marinelife and sea turtles below.

This beach is always clean and relatively quieter than other public beaches, and there are gorgeous mangrove-lined trails if you’re up for a little exploring. If you plan to do a lot of walking, bring water shoes or sneakers as the sand does get hotter on your feet throughout the day.

If you want to see the reason why it’s called “blowing rocks”, make sure you go at high tide!

There are 1773 documented species that occupy tropical reefs worldwide, and South Florida has the most diverse population of fish in America, with 531 species to admire. To put this into perspective, Hawaii only has 332 different reef inhabitants. From angelfish and parrotfish to sea turtles and dolphins, here are a few exciting species to look for while you're snorkeling on a reef in Palm Beach.

 

Queen Angelfish

Queen Angelfish are quite possibly some of the most beautiful and iconic fish in the sea, and acquired their name from their “crowns”, a round black/blue spot on top of their heads. Angelfish are omnivores, eating mostly sponges and algae, and they usually live alone or in pairs, so it has been theorized that they are monogamous and

Palm Beach County has one of the most diverse marine ecosystems in the world, so snorkeling and diving one of the 181 reef sites is a magical experience. On Singer Island, the reef at Ocean Reef Park is shallow and close enough to shore to be a great spot for beginners and non-Florida natives. Since 700 feet of the beach is also protected by lifeguards, no dive flag is necessary as long as you swim in the guarded area between the buoy and shore.

At low tide, you can see the reef protruding from the ocean, and at high tide, waves crash on the shoreline rocks to explode into a natural splash fountain.

A beach wheelchair is available for use, as well as picnic areas with grills, a playground, restroom facilities, and an outdoor shower. Parking is
