Highland Beach is a town in Palm Beach County, Florida, United States. As of the 2010 census, the population was 3,539. Highland Beach is nestled between the larger towns of Delray Beach and Boca Raton, located along the scenic A1A highway. Without a single traffic light, its quiet and relaxing beaches serve as critical nesting grounds for endangered sea turtles. For eight months out of the year, from March 1 through October 31, turtles come to the shores and lay thousands of eggs in nests all along the beaches. Weeks later, the hatchlings burst from the sand and make their way to the moonlit sea. No traffic light needed here.
Sink into sea-inspired luxury at the Delray Sands Resort. This upscale enclave of coastal elegance, with its laid-back ambiance, is the epitome of relaxed coastal elegance.
