Florida is the worldwide hub of boating and yachting and some of the world’s biggest boat shows. Of course there are beautiful private communities throughout Palm Beach County offering residences for those who love boating and want a special place to call home port.
Jupiter Inlet has a particular concentration of such communities, but many others are found along the Intracoastal Waterway and around the inlets, coastal barrier islands, and even inland with deep water access by river or canal.
Many of these communities are highly luxurious, providing much more than homes with docks; golf courses, dining venues, clubhouses, fitness centers, spas and other amenities are not uncommon.Not every person who lives on the water owns a boat. Many homeowners love the natural beauty provided by living on one of Florida’s scenic waterways, rivers or lakes, without wanting to engage in boat ownership.Like other lifestyle communities, these may be gated, 55+ or family-oriented, and may have additional fees related to the maintenance of seawalls, docks, waterway access, and similar costs.
