Delray Beach



Located on the southeast corner of Palm Beach County, Delray Beach is known worldwide as a first class historic resort town. Delray Beach real estate is perfect for those seeking a more urban yet charming small town setting within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and beaches.

From luxury condominiums, exquisite townhomes, charming cottages to inclusive mega mansions and Intracoastal estates, Delray Beach embraces the romance between old historical Delray Beach and the newly renovated Downtown Delray.

Downtown Delray Beach is a retail, cultural and residential hub in a pedestrian friendly atmosphere. Located in the eastern part of the city, along Atlantic Avenue and stretching to the beach, Downtown Delray has undergone a large scale renovation with a strong commitment to the preservation of the historical Delray Beach district. 

Atlantic Avenue is a treasure trove for the recreational shopper and showcases more than 150 different boutiques, art galleries, shops, restaurants, and cafes. With more than two dozen hotels and close to 70 restaurants, Delray Beach appeals to residents and visitors alike.

In addition, Delray Beach is the host to many annual cultural events: between the Festival of Arts, the Delray Affair, St Patrick’s Day Parade and Garlic Fest- there is never a shortage of something to do.

Tennis fans in Delray Beach can enjoy the Delray Beach Tennis Center, host site of several major international tennis events such as the ATP World Event, and Chris Evert Pro-Celebrity Tennis Classic.

With a plethora of boutiques, art galleries, cafes and plenty of cultural events- the options for a vibrant cultivated lifestyle are limitless.

Another feature that makes Delray unique is its immaculate beaches. With more than two miles of sandy white beaches, Delray Beach remains one of the premier destinations in South Florida to call home.
