Palm Beach

Palm Beach is a prime setting for an indulgent sun, sea and sand holiday. The region was a favourite summer getaway spot during the Gilded Age of America when the rich and famous arrived in their droves. With them, the construction of lavish houses began, a trend that hasn’t slowed down much since the early 20th century. This, complemented by the favourable climate and laid-back pace of life, makes Palm Beach a dream holiday destination when you’re looking for true relaxation.

Relaxing Holiday in Palm Beach

Families, couples and groups can all kick back while on holiday in Palm Beach. Whether that means floating in an infinity pool, playing on the miles of pristine beach or teeing off for 18 holes on one of the waterside golf courses, there is something for everyone in Palm Beach. Surf the waves of the North Atlantic, or join a scuba dive, or cast a line off the back of a boat and catch your dinner.

Holiday with Children in Palm Beach

Palm Beach’s sandy beachfront and warm blue waters could keep children busy swimming and building sandcastles for an entire holiday. But should you need a change of pace, head for Peanut Island Park, where you can snorkel and swim around reefs teeming with colourful fish. Then head off on a family hike around the Lake Trail, a pleasant walkway hugging the edge of Lake Worth Lagoon.

Where to Eat in Palm Beach

From hipster chic to mountains of fresh seafood, you could easily spend your whole holiday eating in Palm Beach. For something special, make your way to Palm Beach Island, around Royal Palm Way for top-notch restaurants you need to book in advance. If you’re after more pocket-friendly meals, make your way to West Palm Beach for good international fare or, for restaurants with a focus on traditional and new American cuisine, try Northwood Village. If you’re driving around, stick to Highway 1 and you could stop on almost every block to pick up something to eat.

Splash that Cash

Shopping is a popular pastime for people on holidays in Palm Beach, so from Royal Poinciana Plaza to Plaza del Mar in South Palm Beach, you’ll find more than enough boutique stores to spend your cash in. For a glimpse of how the other half live, visit the designer haven of Worth Avenue.

A Dash of Culture

If you tire of beaches during your holiday, there are plenty of opportunities for a change of scenery. Instead of looking at the sea from above, try the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium in West Palm Beach. For a thrilling close encounter with nature of a land-loving variety, Palm Beach Zoo is close by. The Norton Museum of Art adds a splash of cultural colour to the palette, as does the Palm Beaches Theatre in South Palm Beach. To explore the history of the area, visit the Flagler Museum, a 55-room mansion built by Henry Flagler, a founder of Standard Oil. It is a prime example of the Beaux Arts architecture popular during the Gilded Age.
