Whichever experience you are looking for there are options for you to spend a nice day with family and friends.

Beer Can Island

Beer Can Island is another favorite place to spend the day in Palm Beach. This destination received its name after locals would throw their empty beer cans into the water, leaving them behind on the island when they were done.

Boaters and jetskis head to Beer Can Island during low tide to enjoy the water and a good time while the water is only six inches deep.
