Culture and coastlines in the Palm Beaches

One thing that always stands out on any visit to the Palm Beaches is the relaxing lifestyle. Imagine whiling away the day on a beach, sipping a Mojito and gazing across the ocean at a local bar, or delving into the famed shopping boulevards. Well, with this selection of the best ways to shop and kick back, you’ll no longer have to imagine.


As soon as you begin to explore the Palm Beaches, you’ll realise that shopping is a big part of local life. With luxury boutiques and chic shopping malls in every direction, the options here are endless. One spot that never fails to disappoint is Worth Avenue; a world class shopping district dating back to the fashion heydays of the 1930s and 40s. Treat yourself to the latest fashion trends from international designers and emerging local creatives – this, after all, is retail therapy at its finest.

It’ll be no surprise to learn that native Palm Beach-ers are hot on conservation; so beautiful is their home with azure waters, golden sands and an abundance of beautiful wildlife. And the Loggerhead Marinelife Centre is a perfect example of this dedication to ecology. The centre offers everything from bird watching hikes to science talks. One activity we can’t get enough of is the Turtle Walks that take place every year from May. Here you can observe these fascinating creatures up close, and, if you’re lucky you might just get to witness the hatching season too.

Whether it’s tackling the waves on a surf board or sailing on a private yacht, taking to the water is a local pastime that never gets old. If you’re someone always seeking adrenaline fuelled adventures, then you’ll love kitesurfing. This exhilarating sport will see you gliding across the sea in style as you embrace the fresh sea breeze and enchanting tropical views.
