Palm Beach Island has been a world-renowned destination of the rich and famous for over 100 years. Rich in history, Palm Beach was founded by Henry Flagler, industrialist and founder Standard Oil, as a winter playground for the rich in the late 1800’s.
Palm Beach is a fantastic place to live – the community offers a small town ambiance with world class amenities. This unique blend of exclusivity, luxury and small-town charm means residents can enjoy five-star shopping and dining next door to local crafts, cultural centers and relaxed beach fare.
This 16 mile long barrier island is separated from the mainland by the Intracoastal Waterway. Luxury condominiums and multi-million dollar estates line the sparkling Atlantic to the east and the Intracoastal Waterway to the west. The tropical environment created by close proximity to the Gulf Stream produces lush gardens, palm lined beaches, and an outstanding marine environment; a veritable paradise for the nearly 10,000 annual residents and 30,000 seasonal residents between November and April.
While the island of Palm Beach remains a winter retreat for many of the world’s most revered executives and celebrities, both the full and part time residents share a strong sense of community and a love of the stunning architecture, natural beauty, and cosmopolitan culture.
