Highland Beach is a small beachside community located just north of Boca Raton in Palm Beach County. Highland Beach is nestled along the shore between the Biscayne Bay and Atlantic Ocean and has just one road running north to south in most areas, the iconic A1A beachfront highway. This small town is just 1.1 square miles and almost exclusively zoned as residential, providing plenty of luxury condos and single family homes right on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean.
Because Highland Beach is primarily residential, it does not have much to offer in terms of commercial activity, restaurants, and entertainment. However, nearby Boca Raton offers some of the region’s best dining, shopping, and entertainment in Mizner Park, Royal Palm Plaza, and other shops and complexes along Federal Highway. The beautiful scenic drive along the A1A in Highland Beach is one of the best rides in South Florida, both for biking and driving. Also, Highland Beach is just a stone’s throw away from some of the nicest parks in the region, like Gumbo Limbo Nature Center, and Spanish River Park.
If you’re a history or art lover, Highland Beach is close to some of the coolest historical attractions in South Florida, in neighboring Delray Beach and Boca Raton, such as the Boca Raton Museum of Art, and the Boca Raton Historical Society. Boynton Beach is also just up the road and has plenty of luxury condos and single family homes to explore. So if you’re looking for that piece of luxury paradise along the ocean in one of the most private communities in South Florida, look no further than some of the luxury condos on Highland Beach.
