The water taxi is about 5 minutes. The path around the island is a nice walk. There are restrooms and covered areas to eat lunch. Couldn't believe all the schools of fish around the rocks right next to shore.

A little gem. Accessible by short ride in boat or water taxis. No condos/homes. Small, clean beach, with small lagoon for great snorkeling. Bring gear and let loads of fish surround you.

The Ferry price is the only complaint. $12.00 for 1/4 mile boat ride is a little high. Once you arrive there showers, restrooms and picnic tables. A great snorkeling spot for kids.

Snorkeling: Human-made rock barriers and lagoon provide protected, calm waters for snorkeling. Colorful reef fish and crabs, plus the occasional rays, octopuses, turtles, upside-down jellyfish, and manatees, make it worth your while. For your picnic, Peanut Island has grassy areas with pavillions, tables, and grills...More
