Two adjacent cement piers form an inlet from the ocean to the intercoastal waterway. Pleasant walk out to view the ocean and the boats making there way in and out of the intercoastal. While we were there we saw a manta ray, but my hope of seeing a manatee was disappointed. Ample free parking.

Visit Boynton Beach, Florida yearly & never fail to include a stop at the inlet; always interesting to see the activity of fishing, high speed boats tearing thru the tricky currents of the narrow inlet and the (almost) tame Pelicans. Recent upgrades in the facilities have made it a much nicer environment and it is always clean and patrolled.

Parking is the biggest problem; but not if you know how easy it is to park for free in the garage of the adjacent high-rise apartment building. Various sized boats & Skee-doos can be rented. The Sea Mist III sails twice daily for deep sea fishing. Of the two restaurants, I like Banana Boat more; it has both inside and... More

We're locals and love the inlet! Even if you don't have a boat, it's nice to watch the boats come in and out. It's clean, it's safe, and it's a great taste of our local life. Bring lunch and sit on the sea walls! Stay for the sunset!

I'm a boat captain and go through Boynton Inlet often... as much as I hate it, I have no choice. It is declared as one of the most dangerous inlets in Florida because of the current and sand bars. That being said, as I go through the inlet I see so many people enjoying their day out. You can sit... More

My husband and I like to go down to the inlet to watch the boats, people fishing, pelicans trying to steal their catch. It's relaxing and it's part of what living in South Florida is all about.

Great place to watch the boats go in and out to the ocean from the inlet. Some picnic tables and parking and you can walk down the inlet under the roadway and out to the beach. But swimmers beware of rough waters.
