Hillsboro Inlet & Lighthouse
Arguably the most special feature of Lighthouse Point is the Hillsboro Inlet and the eponymous lighthouse that rests on the north side of it. On the south side of the inlet sits an old pier made of rocks and wood that has been a popular locals fishing spot for decades. It’s the sort of spot residents have known about forever and tourists migrate to. There isn’t anything fancy there; the biggest attraction is simply beautiful glimpses of boats leaving the Intracoastal and entering the Atlantic.
This is another one of those locations in Broward you wish was a secret among close friends but at the same time you feel the need to share with others. The Hillsboro Inlet has gone unchanged for decades, and that’s part of what makes it so special to so many people that grew up enjoying it.
