Singer Island is actually a peninsula and not an island. Before the Palm Beach Inlet was created, it was connected to the island of Palm Beach to the south. It is located on the Atlantic coast of Palm Beach County, Florida in the South Florida metropolitan area. Most of it is in the city of Riviera Beach, but the town of Palm Beach Shores occupies its southern tip. Its latitude of is 26.784 N and its longitude is 80.037 W. The easternmost point of Florida is located there in Palm Beach Shores.

Named after Palm Beach developer Paris Singer, a son of Isaac Singer, the Singer Sewing Machine magnate, Singer Island has parks, marinas and bike paths, as well as 47 miles of sparkling white sand beaches  that has been considered one of the top five beaches in Palm Beach County.

In addition, Singer Island is located 3 miles from North Palm Beach, 5.4 miles from West Palm Beach and 5.4 miles from Palm Beach Gardens and 10.6 miles from Jupiter.

It is believed that Singer Island was originally purchased by Paris Singer as a gift for his mistress, who reportedly did not like it. Today it is a picturesque and upscale home for thousands of condo owners. The tallest of these is the 42-story Tiara

Singer Island was also home to rocker and E Street Band member Clarence Clemons.
