Accented with bright blue skies, palm trees, and pristine stretches of white sand, Florida’s The Palm Beaches provide an iconic escape that reaches far beyond the shoreline.
Usually unassuming and decidedly understated, The Palm Beaches (made up of 39 towns and cities) has been thrust into the spotlight recently, as the affluent area is home to Donald Trump’s now-famous Mar-a-Lago estate—unofficially dubbed the “Winter White House” under the new United States administration. But presidential traffic jams, secret service boat patrols, and no-fly zones aside, this posh beachfront locale is still a prime destination for the well-heeled crowd.
Where to Hang Your Hat
A property where luxury meets low-key beach getaway, the newly-renovated Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa in Palm Beach features bright, sunny rooms and suites created by popular designer Jonathan Adler. The resort has two stunning swimming pools that overlook the ocean, plus an abundance of lounge chairs, two restaurants with patios, and easy beach access. The expansive day spa includes indoor-outdoor space and a lovely relaxation garden. With separate male and female saunas, steam rooms, and Jacuzzis, the sprawling spa also offers 20 private treatment rooms (some oversized for couples).
