This place is one of the reasons I love living in Florida. Watching the boats pass by and seeing the friendly people fish makes this place a memorable experience. Iv'e been visiting this inlet since 1992 and it's never a disappointment.

A great place to not only watch ocean waves but boats entering and leaving the Intracoastal waterway through the narrow passage of the inlet. There are two jetties on which to fish and restrooms close by.

Unless you are a redneck with a raised pick up truck, don't go here. The whole place is poor white trash that cannot afford a beach permit.

There are two parking areas that straddle the inlet west of the A1A bridge. The south lot has rest rooms and picnic tables, which were being used by dining groups when I was here this weekday. Fishermen on both sides of the inlet cut west of A1A had their lines in the water, fishing for I-don't-know-what. A man on the... More

A few places are Free, the inlet park has free parking, great clean bathrooms you can fish, swim in either the Ocean or the intercoastal all for FREE, if you are 65 or over, no fishing license needed, Palm Beach County does a great job keeping the inlet park clean and tidy

Saw this place on the map and included it in our sightseeing excursion. Parking was below street grade at a county park. Lots of people fishing. Had a nice walk on the beach. There was a nasty pelican on the boardwalk that wouldn't let us pass, so we never made it out to the end. If you drive past the... More

This is one of the last of the places to fish for free unlike Pompano Pier and the Hillsboro Inlet park. You don't have to pay for parking and the fishing is good. Try to go during the week as the weekends are busy in the off season but you will still find parking even on a weekend.

Plenty of parking on both sides of the inlet, clean, shaded, well maintained with picnic facilities. Only drawback is the access to the beach area over A1A - the road tends to get busy "in season", the beach is small, isn't handicap accessible. Fun place to watch boats coming and going from the inlet to the ocean. Cool pier.
