Why you'd want to live in Highland Beach
Highland Beach is nestled between the larger towns of Delray Beach and Boca Raton, located along the scenic tree-lined A1A highway. Without a single traffic light, its quiet and relaxing beaches serve as critical nesting grounds for endangered sea turtles. For eight months out of the year, from March 1 through October 31, turtles come to the shores and lay thousands of eggs in nests all along the beaches. Weeks later, the hatchlings burst from the sand and make their way to the moonlit sea. No traffic light needed here.
