Peanut Island
Palm Beach, Florida
Palm Beach County
561-842-8202

This site is located in the Southeast region of the state.

DIRECTIONS
This site may be visited as part of a tour, which begins at Currie Park in West Palm Beach. To reach Currie Park from I-95, exit onto Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard (Exit 53) and travel east to Flagler Boulevard. Turn left (north) on Flagler Boulevard approximately one-half mile to Currie Park on the right. The tour boat facility is adjacent to the ML King Memorial in the park.

In the alternative, water taxi service is available from the marina at Phil Foster Park. From I-95, exit onto Blue Heron Boulevard/SR 708 (Exit 55) and proceed east. After crossing the Blue Heron Bridge, turn left at the first traffic signal to enter Phil Foster Park.

Located on Peanut Island in the Lake Worth Inlet, this site includes a restored United States Coast Guard (USCG) Station and boathouse. The station, a two-story frame Colonial Revival style structure constructed in 1936, served during World War II as a base for coastal patrols and rescue missions. One of four such stations in Florida, the USCG operated from this site until 1995.
