Beautiful with ocean front beach, inlet beach, pavillions, restrooms and a variety of pokemon. Lots of fishing and stations to clean fish and outdoor showers.

The Boynton Inlet is located off A1A about half way between Lantana and Boynton Beach. I often stop there when riding my bike. It's a great spot to check the sea conditions and to watch boats coming and going from the Intracoastal. It can be quite wild when the seas are up. It's a popular place for fisherman. The route...

My friends & I will grab some breakfast sandwiches, coffee & water then head to the inlet. Beautiful scenery to have a nice quiet breakfast with friends. Then we'll toss the football around to burn off a few calories. What a great morning. This is what living in Florida is all about.

Exciting to watch the boats go out and come in through this inlet. Down the beach a bit our man made reefs that are loaded with sea life. Super easy to snorkel right off the shore. I suggest a dive flag though.

Boynton inlet is a nice family beach and park to go to. There are places to fish, sun bath, enjoy the surf and sand, concessions, bbq pits and such. Plan on coming early though if you want to park otherwise you can circle around for an hour waiting for someone to leave.

The Boynton Inlet is an exciting waterway that lets water to go between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal. It is officially deemed "non-navigable", but that doesn't stop boaters from using it. Due to its being so narrow, the current really picks up as the change in tide reaches its maximum flow through it. The Inlet is adjacent to Ocean... More

Parking available in Park across the street. Can see fish off both piers. Better visibility in inlet when tide is coming in. Lots of fishing activity. Have seen sharks and manatees on occasion off the north pier. Suggest not using beach directly adjacent to piers as there is debris (line, hooks, etc) both on and off the piers from fishing... More

This is a great place to see a marina. There used to be great views, but they have since put up condos all around the inlet. It is still a nice place to watch the boats with good places to eat.

Lots of activity to watch as boats pass by and the water rush plays its show. This place is perfect for a shady break from the sun while still enjoying the water.

We decided to try this beach location to see what all the hype was about. I really was not impressed....there are many other beaches in the area that are much better. The water is murky due to the Inlet for boats passing through. Okay for a quick visit but other than that I would not recommend.
