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.

Can go on a charter boat and catch whatever is running. Banana Boat mostly seafood, a little pricey, 2 Georges seams more casual, with varied menu

Get out and do some fishing on the jetty, snorkel the artifical reef on the south side, or just enjoy the sunrise.

Watch local anglers catch right from the sea. Or forget about it bring your pole lets go fishing . Where the brackish water and sea meet this outlet is where local charter, drift boats deploy through to the mighty Atlantic ocean. Teaming with ocean life and parking is nearby .

Nothing really special about the inlet. It does have a fair amount of parking. There are restroom facilities. They really should try and keep the beach a little cleaner. Seaweed never looks good on a beach. Overall it is a nice beach and has a lifeguard.
