Owner description: Although there remains some question as to whether President Kennedy ever intended to use the 1960s bomb shelter built for him beneath this island, tourists come in droves to explore the bunker and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

Though it's usually crowded, Peanut Island is a great place for outdoor activities. Very clean and we'll definitely visit again.

“Feels like you are on a vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

A small island by the Palm Beach Inlet. Lots of fun. Always a good time. Good snorkeling. crystal clear water when the tide is coming in. Bring a cooler, some lunch, sunscreen a chair and watch all that is going on around you. The only concern I would warn people about is there can be rowdy drunks late in the day on the weekends and holidays. I like to mingle in the rowdy area but some first timers with families might not. The later in the day the crazier it can get. If you want the island to your self go in the morning, early afternoon or during the week and you will avoid the party scene. Also the island is small but not so small you can not find a little place to make your own.

“Had a great time and saw part of the 24 hour race!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

Friendly atmosphere and only ten dollars for a water taxi round trip. Snorkeled by the rocks and saw zebra fish and jellies! The lagoon was super cute and interesting, didn't swim there as its not guarded and the water is a deep dropoff. The 24 hour race around the island was occurring to raise money for prostate cancer and was a great inspirational sight. This mainer is going to start training!
