Peanut Island Park is located along the Intracoastal Waterway near the Lake Worth Inlet. It consists of about 80 acres of tropical paradise for visitors to enjoy and explore. The island was created in 1918 when Lake Worth was originally created. Today, however, its perimeter beach areas have become a destination for visitors and locals alike.

The island doesn’t have any food or rental concessions, so be sure to take any food that you want to have while on the island.
