Ocean, Lakes & Everglades

Water . . . it's everywhere you look, everywhere you go in The Palm Beaches, Florida. Swim the surf without fear of a deep freeze, because the Gulf Stream is a mere 3 miles offshore, keeping our seas chilly-free. Dive the spectacular stretch of the world's third largest barrier reef to view exotic fish and navigate through nearly 100 artificial reefs. Go west from the beaches for kayaking, canoeing and boating in Lake Worth Lagoon and the Intracoastal Waterway. Trek west to see "The Big O." From hiking to superior bass fishing, Lake Okeechobee, the second largest freshwater lake contained entirely in the lower 48 states. The Palm Beaches is also the gateway to the Florida Everglades. Explore the 'Glades by visiting Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge and take a ride on the wild and scenic Loxahatchee River or traverse one of more than 30 protected natural areas.
