Ocean, Lakes & Everglades in The Palm Beaches, Florida

You can go on, on and on about what The Palm Beaches are world famous for - luxury, resorts, golf and of course, fantastic weather, but there is another story, one about ocean, lakes and Everglades. It starts with two coastlines: 47 miles of Atlantic Ocean coast and another coast on a massive lake. In between these two shores are beautiful waterways, the one-of-a-kind Florida Everglades and unique adventures. In fact, Audubon Florida, has regonized our protected Natural Areas with the Florida Special Places Award.

Riding atop Atlantic Ocean waves is exciting, but right under those white-tipped crests is a phenomenal world you have to explore. See a tantalizing collection of artificial reefs and an excellent stretch of the 3rd largest barrier reef system in the world.

The local Native Indians called Lake Okeechobee “Big Water”. And you know what… they weren’t kidding. Lake Okeechobee is the second largest freshwater lake in the lower 48 states and the gateway to the Florida Everglades.

Beauty is just a short hike away. The terrain is mostly flat, but tropical trees and plants surround you with exotic wonder. Hike alongside wetlands in the Everglades or through wide-open wet prairie, no matter where you go, you will find sunshine serenity.

Turtle & Mantees in The Palm Beaches, Florida
 

You could almost say turtles and manatees were the first tourists to The Palm Beaches. Come see nature's loggerheads, leatherbacks and green turtles, as well as the gentle giant manatees up close and personal in our calm waters.
