One of the first things you will notice when you move to Palm Beach is the abundance of palm trees that line its streets and beaches. The town’s famous history tells of the wrecking of the Providencia, which resulted in hundreds of coconuts washing up on shore and being planted, or seeding naturally, into a lush grove, providing early settlers with inspiration for Palm Beach’s fitting name.
One of the easternmost towns of Florida, Palm Beach is situated on a barrier island, between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean, that is 18 miles long and ranges from 500 feet to ¾ mile wide. It covers an area of 8.12 square miles, and has no agricultural or industrial business, and a strict building code that enforces this.

Palm Beach enjoys a tropical rainfall climate, with hot, humid summers, and winters that, although warm, offer respite from the intense humidity.
