With majority of people having to cancel their usual summer vacation due to the ongoing pandemic, this has opened the door for individuals and families alike to spend more time researching where that next vacation will be. In 1964 the New York Times called Singer Island an “Unspoiled Resort on Florida’s East Coast,” and remarkably, over half a century later, Singer Island is still relatively unspoiled and features miles of sandy beaches along the oceanfront peninsula. The oceanfront neighborhood sits just a few minutes away from West Palm Beach in the city of Riviera Beach and is lined with top-class resorts, open beaches, fine dining, and boutique shops. It is the perfect place to finally make that escape after the long months of lockdown to recharge and rediscover yourself amongst the quiet calm of the shore.
While just about everyone loves sunbathing and swimming, Singer Island has much more to offer than these basic beach adventures. The seven-mile stretch of beaches that line Singer Island offers access to some of the most enjoyable aquatic adventures in the greater Palm Beach area.
If you are looking at boating or fishing jump over to the Riviera Beach Marina Village and find plenty of boat rentals and fishing charters. Anglers love the abundance of tuna, marlin, grouper, and wahoo. More adventurous visitors take advantage of the jet ski, kayak, or paddleboard rentals.
Families with children will want to plan a stop at the nearby Manatee Lagoon, a discovery center that allows children to get close to manatees. In addition, there are kids’ classes and hands-on exhibits to keep them busy and happy. Best of all, the entire center is free of charge to access.
Finally, divers and snorkelers are not left out of the equation at Singer Island, and in fact, have the unique chance to follow the Underwater Snorkel Trail at Phil Foster Park. Divers can discover a dazzling array of reefs, sunken sculptures, historic wrecks, and a diverse collection of marine life that includes tropical fish and sea turtles. Just down the way, is the Intracoastal Waterway that is considered the best dive site across the world. Peanut
Island, accessible via a short ride on the water taxi, offers even more snorkeling and diving opportunities for those who want to see everything the Singer Island area has to offer.
