What is it that makes the Palm Beaches a diver’s paradise? Palm Beach County's coastal waters consist of natural coral formations which are part of the Florida Reef Tract. The “FRT” is the third largest reef tract in the world as well as the continental United States' only living barrier coral reef.

“Palm Beach County reefs have the widest diversity and abundance of marine life with the clearest water, because this is the closest place in North America to the Gulf Stream current in the Atlantic Ocean,” scuba expert Jim Abernethy recently told ‘Discover the Palm Beaches'.

Five of the seven marine turtle species reside in our area, and the beaches represent North America's most popular nesting ground for both loggerhead and leatherback sea turtles.

A recent study by the University of Exeter in the UK found that people who live less than a mile from the coast are 22 percent less likely to have symptoms of a mental health disorder compared to those who lived much farther away.

Is it the calm swaying of the palms or the foo-foo drinks with the umbrellas, or perhaps the clear blue color of the water that helps improve your mood?

Researchers concluded that access to “blue spaces,” or spaces by the sea or water, may play a big role in a person’s mental health. While many studies have shown that getting out into nature, even for just 20 minutes, can improve your mood, this specific finding could make a big difference in helping a person’s well-being, as well as the coastal environments themselves.
