Peanut Island is a favorite destination for boaters.  Even in the Fall, Peanut Island offers lots of fun with fishing, snorkeling, and camping opportunities within the beautiful clean waters that surround it.  Take a casual stroll on the paved pathways which wrap around the Island as well as the guarded and unguarded beaches for a day of fun in the sun.

The island was created in 1918 as a result of material excavated during the Inlet construction. Its name comes from a peanut oil production plant which its primary function was to serve as a shipping terminal.  It wasn't a success. In 1946, the government abandoned the plant retaining the name of the island. They then turned it into a "spoil site for the inlet maintenance and shipping channel".
