The best view of the lighthouse is from Hillsboro Inlet Park which is located between Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton in Hillsboro Beach. The park is divided by the Hillsborough River which flows out to the Atlantic Ocean.
The Hillsboro Lighthouse is octagonal and is made from iron. It is about 41 meters above the sea level and acts as coastal navigational and local water traffic support.
The park is a good spot for fishing.
