The exclusive and sophisticated yachting destination: Palm Beach 

My luxury travel guide to Palm Beach


With Palm Beach International Boat Show (PBIB) underway, I want to shed some light on one of my favourite yachting hotspots. After studying at the University of Miami and spending multiple summers here, there is a piece of me that will always be in Palm beach. I always love visiting and who knows perhaps one day I will retire there! 


Palm Beach is one of America’s most glamorous resort towns and THE place to be in Florida; whether you want luxury shopping, amazing beaches, gourmet fine dining experiences or yacht charter opportunities, Palm Beach offers something for everyone; here are some of my top luxury travel tips. 


If you want to know where to stay, what to do, where to shop and what to eat? Read on! 


Sleep in luxury 

Some of my closest family and friends live in Palm Beach, so I usually stay with them, but sometimes I treat myself as Palm Beach is home to some of the most luxurious hotels in the world, and these hotels will take your trip to the next level. 

Opening later this year is The Vineta Hotel, by the Oetker Collection. It was the historic Chesterfield, a landmark boutique hotel in the heart of Palm Beach that sold last year. Back in 1991, Palm Beach designated this building to a landmark meaning that the iconic pale pink and mediterranean architecture will stay. Another, similar pink exterior is The Colony, an iconic and historic luxury hotel; I love these pink vibes! 


For a stay at an outstanding resort, head to The Breakers, founded in 1896, while having been rebuilt twice since, the rooms boast complete opulence. For the ultimate relaxation for your accommodation in Palm Beach is the Eau Palm Beach Resort and Spa; set on acres of private beach with five-star facilities. A massage here is the dream! 


Enjoy the beaches

The pristine, long, sandy beaches line Palm Beach make for a great day out. Whatever you do here, make sure you enjoy at least a few of them! To enjoy the sunshine and ocean, you can rent a beach cabana for the day to relax or have an active day renting out some jet skis. 


One of my favourites is Juno Beach, just north of Palm Beach; it is a great surfing spot but the reason I love it, isn’t for my questionable surfing abilities but because it is also home to the Loggerhead Marinelife Center! This non-profit organisation dedicates its time to the conservation of sea turtles. Another favourite is Lantana Beach, which is more secluded and less crowded for a more chilled-out day on the beach. 


Get out on the water

Why not charter a yacht here to enjoy the ocean from the ocean? As a yachting hub, there are plenty of yachts to choose from in Palm Beach. It is the ultimate luxury travel experience, so jump onboard!  


You can cruise the Intracoastal or even head to island hop in The Bahamas or the Florida Keys. Whether you are looking for a day trip or a longer trip, I can help you find the ideal yacht charter from Palm Beach, from a dayboat to a superyacht. 


There is so much to do on a yacht charter around Florida, from snorkelling and diving, beach days and fishing to simply enjoying the coastal exploration in style and comfort. I can create you the ultimate Palm Beach itinerary to enjoy yachting here. 


Shop till you drop 

Worth Avenue on Singer Island is a globally renowned shopping destination full of luxury boutiques and designer stores. It oozes charm with its iconic and historical architecture. Kassatly’s is the oldest store here, dating back to 1923 and today they specialise in their personalised service selling the finest linens and designer lingerie. 


From luxury fashions to fine jewellery, galleries and restaurants, Worth Avenue is a great place to wander, shop and people-watch. 


Choose from Gucci, Tiffany’s, Chanel, Ralph Lauren, Hermes and Bottega Veneta and many more – a true shopper’s paradise! There are plenty of VIP experiences to be had here; for example, you can create your own printed shift dress at the Worth Avenue Lilly Pulitzer store. 


Palm Beach plates 


You will never go hungry or thirsty in Palm Beach and you will be spoilt for dining choices here. It is home to the best fine dining, with its culinary scene at the heart of the city. Within the historic Brazilian Court Hotel Cafe Boulud, Chef Daniel Boulud creates award-winning French-American cuisine, focusing on seafood with a distinctive South Florida twist.

Eating dinner with a side of waterfront views is easily done in Palm Beach; the members club with a speakeasy-style bar at 1000 North is perfect for views and cocktails. As well as the Palm Beach Yacht club with views of the Intracoastal as you enjoy their gourmet dishes. I love dining out here! 


For a sustainably-minded experience, book a table at Lionfish in Delray Beach. This restaurant, named after the invasive reef fish, serves up the pesky Lionfish, amongst other sustainable, modern cuisine, with local and seasonal ingredients in a casual setting. 


Palm Beach is the ultimate location for sundowners, and my favourite is at the famous Breakers Resort. Virginia – the sommelier here – travels worldwide, bringing the best wines to Palm Beach – enjoy a cold glass, or two, while watching the sunset.
