Peanut Island is small man-made island in the Lake Worth inlet, close to the separation point between Signer Island and Palm Beach. The island houses a park for camping, fishing, snorkeling and other recreational activities. The 79 acre land mass has a storied history, as it is where former president John F. Kennedy built his nuclear bunker during the Cold War. The bunker is still maintained, and walking tours are offered through the facility. The area around Peanut Island is a boaters' paradise, with many shallow areas and sand bars to anchor on. Every weekend you can see a party going on around the island.
- Best for Things to Do with Kids Because: Escaping to Peanut Island for camping and snorkeling near shore is a sure fire way to make memories with the little ones.
- Best for Outdoor Activities Because: Peanut Island is great for boating, fishing, and camping, but an adventure there is best spent in the water snorkeling.
- Best for Beaches Because: Peanut Island Park can be enjoyed night or day, with snorkeling and a walk around the island leading into overnight camping under the stars.
