Named after a member of the Singer Sewing Machine family, Singer Island in Palm Beach County, Florida, happens to be a peninsula, not an island actually. But technicalities aside, Singer Island offers the most tranquil island living on the Atlantic coast with all the modern conveniences and latest amenities with a plethora of entertainment, sporting, dining, art and cultural opportunities. Here are some of the reasons why it is an awesome place to live, and at the very least, deserves a visit.
Beaches, Beaches, Everywhere
Seven miles of beaches sprawl across both sides of Singer Island with pristine waters. They are some of the best beaches in Florida, and you can choose between secluded shorelines from the north end and wide public beaches with touristic attractions and activities on the south end.
Water Sports for Everyone
Whether your outdoor play style is to take a meditative swim in calm waters or seek ultimate challenges in the untamed ocean, Singer Island has water sports to suit every mood and degree of thrill. Here are some great ways it offers for seeking oneness with nature:
- Go stand-up paddle boarding or scuba diving and snorkeling and get to know the reefs and the rich sea-life.
- Surf at the Pump House, where the waves have been described by the pros as “totally epic.”
- Go speedboating, parasailing, and kayaking or jet-ski in the wide Lake Worth Lagoon.
Parks and Nature Preserves With Activities Galore
With three parks, Singer Island has plenty of offerings for adults and kids alike. In the north, MacArthur Beach State Park preserves a natural ecosystem with its secluded beach, the estuary, the maritime hammock, and the rock reef. In the center, Ocean Reef Park provides a beach with pavilions, park land with playgrounds, and opportunities to learn about rock pools and dune ecosystems. In the south of Singer Island, Phil Foster Park under the Blue Heron bridge is spread across 15 acres with a beach, playgrounds, launch ramps for water activities, and fishing and boating docks.
Cuisines From the Globe
With a selection of hundreds of restaurants to choose from, Singer Island caters to an eclectic audience, featuring cuisines from all over the world. Whether you are looking for a casual setting or fine dining, you will have plenty of choices with local and international flavors.
Golf Courses With Tennis and Spas
There is no shortage of golf courses to choose from: public, semi private and private. The PGA National Resort and Spa feature five championship courses and hosts the yearly Honda Classic by the PGA Tour. The Breaker’s in Palm Beach offers two championship courses, par-70 and par-72, with golf lessons and views of the Atlantic Ocean.
