Highland Beach Homes for Sale
Highland Beach is an extremely small, narrow town on the eastern side of the Intracoastal waterway or Goals Stream. It's located just south of Delray Beach and Northeast of the Boca Raton. Surprisingly, this small piece of land is home to nearly 4000 residents. It's also a fairly new town Inc. just in 1949 and was named for its relatively elevated townsite compared to the surrounding communities on scenic A1A Highway. The town doesn't have a single traffic light so if you're looking for quiet, relaxing beaches, and a preserve for endangered sea turtles, this is it. Wait… Did I say sea turtles? You bet! For eight months out of the year from March 1 through October 31, turtles come to the shore of Highland Beach and lay thousands of eggs in nests. Several weeks later, these cute little hatchlings burst forth from the sand and make their way to the moonlit sea. This is definitely something to see even if you don't plan on living here. Read on below to learn more about Highland Beach, it's schools, and how you can be a part of this community.
