Palm Beach is a 26 km long barrier island in Florida, USA and is also the easternmost town in the state. Separated from the neighbouring cities of West Palm Beach and Lake Worth by the Intracoastal Waterway, the town is surrounded by extensive coastline and is officially classified as 62% water. Palm Beach holidays offer a pleasant climate and great opportunities for a variety of water and outdoor activities.
With a tropical climate like most of southern Florida, Palm Beach boasts temperatures of at least 18°C all year round. While the warmest months are July and August, the ideal time to visit is between November and April due to the lower rainfall. Palm Beach is on Eastern Standard Time, five hours behind GMT. Direct flights to West Palm Beach airport operate regularly from major European cities and a transfer to Palm Beach takes around ten minutes by taxi or shuttle service.
While relaxing on the beach is a high priority for many while on Palm Beach holidays, a variety of watersports are available including diving, snorkelling, surfing, fishing and kayaking. For those who prefer land based activities, the lake trail along the Intracoastal Waterway is ideal for cycling or jogging. With Florida being the golfing capital of America, there are a selection of golf courses on Palm Beach: the Palm Beach Country Club in the north of the island and the more central Everglades and Breakers courses. The Henry Morrison Flagler Museum is also worth a visit for those who wish to learn more about the founder of Palm Beach and see the extravagant mansion in which he lived.
