Ocean Ridge is a quiet little secret along the A1A that is often overlooked as a site of luxury condos and property development. Perhaps because of its small size, just 2 square miles in area, Ocean Ridge is often not realized as a distinct municipality from Boynton Beach, from which it used to be a part of many years ago. Situated entirely on the barrier island along the A1A, this beautiful community is 100% beachfront and waterfront. This narrow slice of quiet tranquility is zoned almost entirely residential as well, meaning you’ll enjoy an early bedtime, but still be just minutes from some of Palm Beach County’s most exciting nightlife and restaurants.
Because of its narrow area and location along the shore, Ocean Ridge is zoned primary as residential and does not feature many dining, entertainment, or nightlife options within its city limits, however, you’ll be just a few miles from some of the most exciting and vibrant beach communities in all of South Florida. However, the proximity to the shore means you’ll enjoy some of the most beautiful views, sunrises, and sunsets as you travel to and from your luxury condo property in Ocean Ridge. The strip along A1A in Ocean Ridge is also home to a number of fishing charter companies, great for deep sea fishing or fishing in the waters of the Intercostal Waterway.
Ocean Ridge, despite its small area, is actually home to the 19th most Canadians in the country and many Canadians choose Ocean Ridge as a winter vacation retreat. With just below 1,500 total housing units available in this quiet beach town, there are some exclusive condo opportunities, as well as beachfront single family homes, similar to some of the smaller beachfront communities along A1A to the south. With the median age of Ocean Ridge around 57, this is not just a town for retirees, as many young families and professionals are coming to the community because of its proximity to some major urban centers in Florida.
