  • Great views from the little park near the bridge. Quiet area in a nice setting. Great photo ops. Enjoy.

  • Can’t get to the lighthouse unless you have a boat over to the island. There is coast guard stuff around the light so access is restricted. It’s only able to be viewed from the inlet and the beach.

  • If you are a connoisseur of light houses, the Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse is one to see. I found it different from the standard lighthouses you typically see in the northwest. The structure is built....  more

  • Wonderful spot to kick back and relax, have a picnic, AND bring the kids! You can people/boat watch, bring a fishing pole and see what you can catch. It’s an extremely busy inlet, lots of boats going back-and-forth, those are always fun to see. There’s a small beach but you can only get to it via boat, but people really seem to like it. The lighthouse itself is extremely picturesque, so don’t forget to take some snaps! It’s shaded and comfortable even in this hot Florida summer. It’s a terrific spot, there’s limited parking so get here early or just get lucky.
  • Love the place. It brings back many memories from the time I first spotted it in 1973 Always practice water safety. Look before going into the water. See what the current is doing and take a special kind of flotation that allows you to stand. Do go over your head. The beach is beautiful, so stay close to the shore, as the current is strong the.
  • The whole light house experience was good. They will take you to light house by yacht. You will have good view along the ride with good views of backyards. Then you reach the lighthouse at beach which has amazing views. They do not allow open footwear to enter lighthouse. When you are at the top you have a great view of the ocean and the city. The yacht is scheduled to take people every hour. The last ride to light house will be at 3 PM. So we can’t visit this place in evening, so plan ahead.
  • Lovely little inlet and park. Great view of lighthouse, which I was told is private access but has once a month sign up for a tour. So peaceful. As a Florida girl who moved away I seek out new places when I come home and this one was so beautiful. Picturesque.
  • So this is not a public place!! It is actually inside of a private club, no restaurants, no beach access. You can still sit in the park just in front of the lighthouse. This spot is stunning 🤩 and the water is as blue as you can tell in the pictures!
