“One of the best inlets in Florida for boaters, but don't swim in it”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

For boaters it's a great inlet. Wide deep and rarely has weird wave patters that cause difficulties in getting your boat to go where you want. For snorkelers I strongly recommend that you NOT go snorkeling in the inlet because of the heavy boat traffic. Boats don't have brakes. They have to keep moving at a certain minimum speed to steer at all, and lastly wind and wave can force boats to take a line that the operator doesn't intend. There are plenty of other places to snorkel that aren't the equivalent of playing in rush hour expressway traffic.

“Great place to watch boats”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

Fun to watch fishermen at the point. Lots of people watching going on while looking out at the Atlantic. Pretty cool when the cruise ship, gambling boat goes out to sea or comes back in

“Pleasant afternoon walking tour on Singer Island.”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

If you're staying on the beach side of Singer Island, you can stroll through the surf down the beach to the inlet. At the Marriott there is a paved walk following the inlet from the Atlantic back to Lake Worth. The walkway is nice and there is a shelter with benches midway to the Lake. Amazing just across the inlet are the mansions of West Palm Beach. There is a paved walkway running down the center of the island that extends from the inlet to the shopping center. Sailfish Marina is about halfway down. The shop sells fish food to feed the masses of fish waiting at the dock for the well trained tourists to come, feed them, and view the feeding frenzy. The Marina has a view of the Lake and Peanut Island.

“Marriott Ocean Point is right next to Lake Worth inlet”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

You can walk a short distance and be right at the mouth of the inlet as it goes into the ocean. The old pump house is still there... many have spent time there jumping into the ocean. You can watch the boats and see Peanut Island.

“Peanut Island good for a day trip”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Peanut Island has decent snorkling, fun swimming locations and a very "Islands" ambiance. Definitely worth a $10/person ferry ride from the Sailfish Marina. Good place to burn a morning or afternoon on.
