We have made multiple trips to Blowing Rocks Preserve with family and friends. During the busy season, parking can be an issue. We went on a weekday in November this last trip and there was plenty of parking available. The park fee is paid on the honor system. Please place your fee in the box so that they can maintain...

It is a beautiful and unique part of North Palm Beach County. Very peaceful and serene. Hard to find so be careful and keep looking on the right side once you cross the bridge about 2 miles in.

This beach is beautiful. It would be best to go during high tide when there is a high surf for the full effect. May not be the best beach for the elderly or small children as you do need to "climb" down a bit to actually get to the ocean. (If you plan on making it a beach day) A... More

Love this place!! Beautiful natural place on the beach where the water has carved holes and spouts up!! So cool! Worth checking out from singles to families with kids.

Bring your camera and try to be there at high tide on a high surf, windy day for some interesting shots of the "blowing rocks". Beware however that parking is limited and your car will be towed if parked along the side of the road and not in the parking lots.

This is a little mini wonder of the Florida beach which enhances the coastline. As others have said, go at incoming tide to see the blue ocean water blow through the rocks. Walk along the beach or bring a beach chair and a cooler. This whole area is just amazing . Have fun. You only need an hour to enjoy... More

Natural phenomenon that is enjoyable and relaxing. Natural walk to observation deck. As tide rushes in water blows up through rock formations. Worth a 1 hour stop.

Beautiful thick sand surrounds this 200 yd space of rocks which abruptly appear out of no where. Children and adults play and soak up the salty water. Dangerous currents and rip tides beyond the rocks. I attempted to swim beyond the rocks but beneath the waves there are hidden slippery rocks which could be a disaster. The scenery is gorgeous,...

We loved our afternoon here! The beautiful blues if the ocean against the dark sand and rocks created a striking scene. We were there about halfway between Los tide an high tide, as the water levels rose and the spray grew dramatically higher. The kids camped out over a blow hole and giggles as they were repeatedly soaked. The adults... More
