Dogs on the Beach
Dogs are not permitted on our municipal beach.
Four surf chairs are available for the physically challenged to enjoy the beach. The chairs allow for mobility on the sand and are available from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm at the following lifeguard towers: South 1, South 3, South 5 and Atlantic Dunes Park. The use of the surf chair is free of charge but there is a two (2) hour time limitation. The availability of the chair is on a first-come, first-serve basis, and users should be accompanied by a companion who is able to assist them.
Please Note: To ensure safety, Ocean Rescue Staff are not allowed to assist in the transfer of users from wheelchairs or walkers to the surf chair, nor are they allowed to push the user in the surf chair. Therefore, a companion must accompany the user or else the use of the surf chair will be denied.
Stand up Paddle Craft
Stand up paddle craft can only be launched at the north and south ends of the beach. Once in the water, you must maintain 150 yards off the shoreline and away from swimmers.
Army Corps of Engineers - Flood Control & Coastal Emergency Project
A portion of Delray’s beach will be under construction during February and March 2020, as part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer’s (USACE) Shore Protection Project – Ocean Ridge and Delray Beach Segments. This beach renourishment project is designed to repair damages sustained from Hurricane Irma in 2017 and will affect the southern portion of the beach.
Approximately 325,000 cubic yards will be placed between R-184.5 and R-188.5 (~2,000 ft. south of Casuarina Road to the City’s southern limit, ~ 1,000 ft. south of Atlantic Dunes Park). Beach compatible material for the project will come from a permitted borrow area, offshore of Delray Beach.
