Palm Beach is a two-mile strip known for its white sand and turquoise water. Looking for a little action and fun? This place is filled with it but don’t worry there is still room for plenty of relaxation!  The high-rise resorts are located beachfront, all nearly beside each other, allowing for plenty of interaction and socializing, let’s just say you are bound to leave with a new friend or two once your vacation comes to an end!

It’s a popular hangout for tourists (and locals), there is a long sidewalk that runs along the strip making it a great place for a walk with a view. Both young and old, from couples to families, will find everything they need. The beach and surrounding area include beach bars, restaurants, shops, and watersports companies.
