Living in a state with hundreds of miles of beach makes it hard to justify the cost and inconvenience of getting to Peanut Island Park. Once there, your experience depends on how annoying or obnoxious other visitors around you are being. It was hard to find a quiet place to relax. While there, we explored the Kennedy Bunker (a place... More

A day trip to this island across from sailfish marina is a wonderful reprieve from a long work week. There's the JFK bunker, the nature trails, public bathrooms and you can also snorkel on a separate area. Needless to say you can come here for a day a recharge your batteries for a week.

We've been to Palm Beach Shores many times over the past 10 years and have never gone to Peanut Island. We spent a delightful 3 hours walking and touring the JFK Bunker. We went on a Thursday since the bunker is open for tours, and not too busy. When you take the boat ride from Riveria Beach, your ticket entitles... More

We love walking the island, beaching the boat, and grilling along the shore. Another favorite is the sandbar, anchor the boat and grab a float! We avoid the island on big warm weather holidays, it can get very crowded.

We visited Peanut Island on January 22nd. It was a beautiful warm, breezy day. We picked up the boat ride from the marina at E. 13th Street in Riviera Beach, about 30 minutes north of Delray. The staff was well organized. They took credit cards for our party of 5 @ $12/each person. Pets can go over to the island,... More

A nice clean place to enjoy the day. No food so package your snacks or lunch. There is water. We did not stay all night, but it look like it would be fun. Nice restrooms.

We love to go there to stay for a beach day. We can walk around the island. Kids can play in the "lagoon" trying to catch small fishes.

We had wanted to tour the bunker last time we were here but tours are only Thurs - Sun. So this year we went specifically to tour the bunker. Very interesting!!! Though we wished we had brought snorkel gear, we were happy to discover that we could see many cool fish right from the bridges and docks. Spent some time... More
