Lifeguard Tower

The famous Peanut Island is getting a new addition to its shores! For all of the fun-goers that come to Peanut Island, you can breathe a little easier when it comes to swimming around the island. A brand new lifeguard station will be opening on the island later this month. 

Peanut Island’s five, fulltime lifeguards that serve and protect and now they will have new $100,000, hurricane proof headquarters. The new, 12-foot by 12-foot, cinder block building is going to be a hefty step up from the trailer they were calling home for the past decade. The new building will provide the lifeguards with more than 80 square feet of additional space. There will be enough room for a swimmer or person with heat exhaustion to come inside for treatment.

The new lifeguard stand may not seem like a huge step-up in the scheme of things but compared to old building which was a trailer, the concrete structure will be like a palace. The old trailer did not have running water and featured openings cut out of the metal frame for windows. After Peanut Island was renovated in 1999, the trailer was floated over from the main land. During the summer months the island has its five lifeguards watching over the eastern beaches 7 days a week and on the weekends for the rest of the year.

Dave Lill, the director for Palm Beach county aquatics said, “this is another step in making Peanut Island a better place for the public.”

Peanut Island is one of south Florida's favorite features and it is found between Singer Island and Palm Beach Gardens. It is a small island where all of the locals come to enjoy south Florida living. You can take your boat to the island or hop onto a fairy from Sailfish Marina!
