About Palm Beach
One of the world’s most desirable communities, Palm Beach is acclaimed for its gracious lifestyle, luxury real estate and relaxed sophistication. Shopping and dining are enjoyed on internationally renowned Worth Avenue as well as in other locales around town, while an active sporting life centers on world-class polo, golf, tennis, yachting and deep-sea fishing. Hosting an annual active calendar of events, noted cultural organizations include the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, Flagler Museum, Society of the Four Arts and Norton Museum of Art.
Palm Beach is an island of approximately 14 miles long and only one to four blocks at its widest point. The Atlantic Ocean forms its eastern boundary with its western boundary being along the Intracoastal Waterway, or Lake Worth. Three bridges connect Palm Beach to the City of West Palm Beach and the mainland.
The homes near Worth Avenue are in proximity to the cream of the crop boutiques, haute couture, art galleries and major jewelry purveyors as well as charming bougainvillea vias that contain tiny shops and enchanting shopping or dining spots. Worth Avenue residential real estate is limited to condominium apartments located at the east (ocean) and west (Intracoastal) ends of the Avenue with several very special private residences. The Town of Palm Beach Docks are also at the end of Worth Avenue and several streets to the north. The Town Docks are an aquatic neighborhood in itself, berthing some of the most fabulous mega yachts each season.
