Highland Beach was named for its uncommonly high sand dunes that offer both protection from the sea and magnificent views. Highland Beach is just three miles long and proud of having it’s own police, fire and emergency assistance departments dedicated to serving it’s relatively small population.
This cutting-edge town installed a state-of-the-art reverse osmosis water treatment facility, drawing directly from the Florida “aquifer“ 1000 feet below the surface. This assures residents enjoy an unlimited supply of pure water. Highland Beach also features it’s own post office and waterfront library, that is chock full of learning resources and social opportunities.
You will see everything from oceanfront mansions in the tens of millions of dollars to charming Florida-style condos and villas on the intracoastal waterway. A drive down the three mile stretch is customarily peppered with joggers, cyclists and a hearty stream of avid exercise enthusiasts.
You’ll meet a vibrant mix of young professionals, established semi-retired business people, as well as full time retirees in this charming town.
Just minutes from the posh entertainment, dining and shopping of Boca Raton, Highland Beach is equally accessible to Delray Beach, known for it’s own eclectic stretch of hot spots, just steps from the sparkling shoreline.
Seasonal residents, business commuters and visiting tourists enjoy Highland Beach’s proximity to three international airports, as well as the short drive to the Boca Raton Executive Airport. World renown golf, tennis and polo facilities, along with every imaginable marine resource are all available within a short drive from this conveniently located city.
Highland Beach consistently ranks as one of the safest cities in the U.S. with approximately 4200 full time residents. There is not one traffic light in Highland Beach which affords motorists an easy, breezy drive along this scenic stretch of Atlantic Coast Line.
