Highland Beach is an affluent town in Palm Beach County, Florida. An elevated town site, Highland Beach is one of the most desirable neighborhoods to reside in the East Coast.

The Neighborhood

The town of Highland Beach was incorporated in 1949. It is bounded to the east by the Atlantic Ocean and to the west by the Intracoastal Waterway.

It has the neighborhoods of Delray Beach to its north, Hillsboro Beach to its south and the City of Boca Raton to its southwest.

It is a tiny oceanfront town with the most expensive homes. While there are only more than 3,000 residents, the number doubles during peak season as the community is a sought after tourist destination for several years now. This is also the reason why many of the businesses in Highland Beach are greatly focused on tourism. Some of the businesses only open their shops during the high season.

As soon as the visitors and seasonal residents head back to their homes, Highland Beach is a quiet place to live in.

The community is a known enclave for urban sophisticates – older, financially stables and established individuals who have great appreciation of the arts, travel and sophistication of rural town living.

Things To Do

Highland Beach is a coastal town, with parts of its neighborhood serving as bays and inlets of the bodies of water. These areas are favorite places of locals and visitors for some waterfront activities.
