About this beach

Warnings and hazards

The parking fees are high.

One of the easternmost towns in Florida, located in east-central Palm Beach County, Palm Beach is a small and picturesque beach town with historic landmarks, exquisite mansions, upscale shopping districts, and legendary resorts.

As for the climate, Palm Beach features hot, humid summers and warm, slightly drier winters when the population of the town increases several times. The best time to arrive for a holiday is from November to April when the temperature isn’t extremely high and there’s less rainfall.

Location

Nestled on an 18-mile long barrier island, Palm Beach is separated from the nearby cities by the Intercoastal Waterway to its west. The opposite shore of the town is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean. The island is very narrow – its width varies from as little as 500 feet to three-quarters of a mile. The nearest airports are Palm Beach International and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airports.

Beach

Palm Beach has a sandy beach that stretches along the Atlantic shore of the island for miles. It’s a peaceful and beautiful place – don’t forget to take your camera for some remarkable snaps! Boasting soft, white sand and transparent, bright blue water, the beach offers picturesque and soothing views. Not too crowded. It’s a great place to watch a sunrise. And most importantly, it’s a great place for swimming!

Access to the Beach

There is plenty of street parking. However, it can get filled quickly and you should get ready for high parking fees (like $5 per hour). The beach has quite easy access (although not convenient for the handicapped) and features no entry fee.

Beach Amenities

The municipal stretch of the beach has a set of public restrooms. It’s usable but needs renovation. There are some shower stations for feet but not many.

Feel Privileged

According to Forbes and Bloomberg News, the small town of Palm Beach ranks as the 27th wealthiest place in the country, with about 30 billionaire citizens! Donald Trump, John F. Kennedy, and other rich and famous individuals have resided here.

If you’re up to do some upscale shopping and treat yourself to chic dining, check out the Royal Poinciana Way Historic District, Royal Poinciana Plaza, and Worth Avenue. If you’re into golfing, you’ll easily find a golf resort with a splendid view of either Lake Worth Lagoon, or the Intracoastal Waterway, or the Atlantic Ocean.
