This, combined with the town’s entrancingly beautiful natural environment, world-class amenities, and exquisitely designed homes, make Highland Beach an ideal community for those who dream of living close to nature without sacrificing the finer things in life.

Quick Facts

  • Centuries before Highland Beach, FL was incorporated, the area where the town stands was home to the Calusa peoples, a Native American tribe that inhabited different sections of southern Florida.
  • Much later, around the 1500s, the place became popular stomping grounds for pirates who used it as shelter from bad weather and the law.
  • This inlet town, which is just along the A1A state road and is bordered by Delray Beach on the north and Boca Raton on the south, is so small that there are no traffic lights anywhere.
  • Animal lovers will be delighted to know that the shores of Highland Beach are more than just recreation spots. For eight months a year beginning in March, endangered sea turtles build nests and lay their eggs in Highland Beach’s sands.
