Palm Beach Playground

You haven't truly been to Palm Beach until you've made the trip out to Peanut Island, an 80-acre slice of tropical paradise smack dab in the Lake Worth Inlet. You've got a lovely share of sunbathing beaches as well as the underwater delights of a snorkeling lagoon, which in winter becomes something of a manatee hangout. The isle also offers overnight camping at the developed Peanut Island Camping and some designated beach sites on the west side.

There's more to Peanut Island, constructed in 1918 from dredged material from the Lake Worth Inlet, than recreational pleasures. You can also check out a bunker built in 1961 as a top-secret fallout shelter for President John F. Kennedy. Now how cool is that?

Utrip Tips

*You'll need to take a water taxi or kayak over.
*Check out JFK's bunker and the Maritime Museum, too!
