In early 2020, The Breakers Palm Beach will be opening a new restaurant as an ode to Florida railroad tycoon Henry Flagler. Henry’s Palm Beach will be located on Royal Poinciana Way in the heart of Palm Beach alongside the stylish collection of boutiques, eateries, and condos.

Named after the luxury resort’s founder, Henry’s will present elevated American comfort food in a casually elegant setting with lively Palm Beach energy.

The premiere restaurant will be open daily for lunch, social hour, dinner, late-night cocktails, and weekend brunch.

Henry’s Palm Beach will be The Breakers’ second off-site restaurant. It will join the highly popular Echo, which features the distinctive cuisines of Asia.

Twenty-Seven Waterfront agents were recognized for having sold $10 million or more last year.

Evidencing the utility of Waterfront Properties’ brokerage-supplied agent resources, more than a third of its 75 real estate agents were named to 2018’s Captain’s Club. Twenty-seven agents were recognized for having sold $10 million or more as an individual agent, or on average as part of a dedicated sales team. This factors in private sales, the Multiple Listing Service (“MLS”), and referral transactions.

“Data doesn’t lie,” Waterfront Owner Rob Thomson said. “Our model works for every agent willing to buy into and utilize the system. Every year we want to have more Captain’s Club members than the year before.”

Captain’s Club members cited some

When your real estate agent won’t invite you to meet their marketing team, there likely isn’t one. When you visit Waterfront Properties corporate office it will be obvious that Waterfront is as much a marketing firm with expert knowledge and a budget to focus on a sale of your property as it is a real estate brokerage.

The Waterfront Advantage

The last word that could ever be used to describe Waterfront Properties is ordinary. At Waterfront’s marketing headquarters, a diligent and enthusiastic staff works hand-in-hand with real estate agents. Together, they collaborate to expertly market their sellers’ properties and reach buyers all over the world. Don’t assume this is the norm in every real estate office.

Waterfront’s significant digital footprint gives sellers’ properties exposure around the world. Whether it’s a local buyer, a reliable feeder market like the Northeastern U.S., or Europe and Canada, if you work with Waterfront, your property is guaranteed to be seen by an enormous number of qualified and interested buyers.

“I get it,” says Rob Thomson, owner of Waterfront Properties, “It feels good to see your property advertised on the pages of your favorite glossy magazine or local newspaper. It does create a little buzz. Your friends telling you that they saw your property makes you feel good. But it won’t sell your home.” That is why Waterfront Properties uses more than just print advertising.

Waterfront Properties made the decision to

When we were told the same good people behind Guanabanas Restaurant in Jupiter were opening a new waterfront dining destination in Stuart, we had to venture north to check out their newest creation, TideHouse.

Arriving by boat, we were pleased to find quick and easy dockage at Harborage Marina and Yacht Club, with a depth of about 6-8’ throughout the entire marina making it a simple option for a larger boat as well. They offer a single floating dock on the west side of the main marina dock for anyone to use, as well as 3 first-come-first-serve boat slips.

TideHouse’s large dining area and island bar has a modern yet casual feel like a cross between a tiki bar and a yacht club, and overlooks the St. Lucie River from above, providing sweeping

Blowing Rocks Preserve is like no other beach along the Florida Atlantic coast. Sandy beach is complimented by unique geological rock formations. Waves interact with these natural structures to produce a beautiful geyser show in some areas, and if you come here on a calm day you can see lots of marinelife and sea turtles below.

This beach is always clean and relatively quieter than other public beaches, and there are gorgeous mangrove-lined trails if you’re up for a little exploring. If you plan to do a lot of walking, bring water shoes or sneakers as the sand does get hotter on your feet throughout the day.

If you want to see the reason why it’s called “blowing rocks”, make sure you go at high tide!

There are 1773 documented species that occupy tropical reefs worldwide, and South Florida has the most diverse population of fish in America, with 531 species to admire. To put this into perspective, Hawaii only has 332 different reef inhabitants. From angelfish and parrotfish to sea turtles and dolphins, here are a few exciting species to look for while you're snorkeling on a reef in Palm Beach.

 

Queen Angelfish

Queen Angelfish are quite possibly some of the most beautiful and iconic fish in the sea, and acquired their name from their “crowns”, a round black/blue spot on top of their heads. Angelfish are omnivores, eating mostly sponges and algae, and they usually live alone or in pairs, so it has been theorized that they are monogamous and

Palm Beach County has one of the most diverse marine ecosystems in the world, so snorkeling and diving one of the 181 reef sites is a magical experience. On Singer Island, the reef at Ocean Reef Park is shallow and close enough to shore to be a great spot for beginners and non-Florida natives. Since 700 feet of the beach is also protected by lifeguards, no dive flag is necessary as long as you swim in the guarded area between the buoy and shore.

At low tide, you can see the reef protruding from the ocean, and at high tide, waves crash on the shoreline rocks to explode into a natural splash fountain.

A beach wheelchair is available for use, as well as picnic areas with grills, a playground, restroom facilities, and an outdoor shower. Parking is
