Welcome to Palm Beach Island

A barrier island retreat where sophistication meets vibrant energy

Palm Beach Island combines pristine beaches, upscale shops, and world-class restaurants. Though relatively well-known, this barrier island seems like a small part of South Florida from a distance. Only when you cross the Royal Park Bridge does the island’s natural beauty and unique charm appear. A highly walkable residential paradise, Palm Beach Island exudes luxury and sophistication while still maintaining a laid-back island atmosphere.

Local Lifestyle

The Palm Beach lifestyle embodies sophistication and leisure. Days revolve around soaking up the sun on pristine beaches, followed by strolls along Worth Avenue, where you might browse designer boutiques and art galleries. After a light bite for lunch, locals have options (Golf at a world-class course? Play a game of pickleball? Visit a museum across the bridge in Palm Beach?). Evenings present residents of Palm Beach Island with upscale restaurants, cocktails at luxurious bars, and live music somewhere in town.

Dining and Entertainment

Palm Beach Island offers a luxurious escape beyond just pristine beaches. Start your exploration with a stroll down Worth Avenue. This world-renowned shopping destination oozes European sophistication with a mix of high-end brands like Chanel and Gucci alongside one-of-a-kind boutiques.

For an unforgettable dining experience, Cafe Boulud awaits just steps from Worth Avenue. This coveted spot serves classic French fare prepared with fresh, local ingredients and an emphasis on seafood. If you prefer a more casual atmosphere, Buccan offers innovative small plates bursting with flavor, all crafted by James Beard-nominated Chef Clay Conley using the finest local ingredients.

La Goulue evokes the vibrant cabaret scene of 19th-century Paris. Like Cafe Boulud, the menu at La Goulue features classic French cuisine, though prepared with a modern twist. It’s a perfect choice for a special occasion or a romantic evening. For a casual meal, visit the SurfSide Diner, which serves American diner favorites in retro-coastal digs.

Palm Beach Island has many more renowned restaurants for visitors to sample. For example, Sant Ambroeus offers a taste of Milanese cuisine right on the water. Mornings begin with an inviting selection of pastries, bread, and coffee. As the day progresses, the atmosphere shifts into a more upscale setting for dinner. On the island's south side, Renato’s presents an old-world Italian dining experience with homemade pasta, delicious seafood dishes, and tender cuts of meat. Both Sant Ambroeus and Renato’s have excellent wine lists.

Things to Do

History buffs can delve into the past at The Breakers Palm Beach, a grand resort established in 1896. This Italian Renaissance-style marvel offers a glimpse into the island's past through its architecture and oceanfront location. While there, pamper yourself at the spa, indulge in delectable cuisine, browse upscale shops, or even perfect your swing with a golf lesson.

Locals love taking boats out onto the turquoise waters, soaking up the sun, and even enjoying gourmet meals prepared by personal chefs. Members can tee off at world-class golf courses nearby, like the Medalist Club. Come nightfall, you can cross the bridge into West Palm Beach and catch a performance at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts.
