the south end of singer island has a beautiful public beach with free parking. a great place to sunbathe, swim, fish and snorkle near north palm beach. also near the public beach are a collection of surf shops, restaurants, and bars.
jupiter lighthouse is located five miles north of north palm beach on US 1. this historic lighthouse was built in 1860. the lighthouse has a museum on the history of the area and you can go to the top of the lighthouse for a great view of the loxahatchee river.
the william t. kirby nature center is located at john d. mac arthur beach state park. the nature center has exhibits on the wildlife and ecosystems of the the park as well as live animal exhibits. a great place to take children to learn about south florida wildlife. see the attached pictures of waterfowl at the park.

Good for: Families
panama hatties is a fun restaurant and bar located on the intercoastal waterway in north palm beach. a great place to drink and watch the sunset. they offer seafood and american fare moderately priced. a fun place to eat and drink in the north palm beach area.
Pronti's Italian restaurant in Lake Park cannot be beach for quality, quantity, and price. Also, Captain Charlies in North Palm is equally good for seafood.
Avoid Panama Hattie's based on prices that are just too high.
Pronti's is decorated with may photos of the family and memorabilia, interesting to look at. They also have comfortable booths.
Favorite Dish: I always liked the large antipasto (with the fishies) at Prontis. Any thing is good there however. At Captain Charlies my favorite is the fish stew (fish, clams, mussels, lobster, etc.)

After the hurricanes of 2004 several of the buildings at the Juno Beach Holiday Inn were rebuilt. I am not fussy but mildew smells forced me out of this hotel. Also there are not enough plugs to charge your phone and lap-top. 3 years ago most rooms had coffee makers small refrigerators and other amenities. This is just a Motel 6 with a green sign. If you have a dog be sure you inspect your room FIRST - they have two cat-pee rooms that stink to high heaven - God, cats suck.
Unique Suggestions: Check room FIRST !!!! BEFORE you give them a credit card - IF your rooms is ultra cold . . . they have turned up the air conditioner to hide various stinks.
If you want a secluded beach drive to Juno Beach. Take A1A northern fork off of US1. Drive about 1/4-1/2 mile and take first right then another immediate right into a park and parking area across the street from the 'duck pond'. Walk toward and onto the beach on the public accessway.
If you love seafood you must eat at Captain Charlies. It is a hole in the wall but the food is beyond description and at least used to be reasonably priced. Demand is high - get there early !
Fondest memory: My fondest memory is of jogging along the beach early in the morning as the sun rises over the ocean. I miss that a lot.
