More About
Palm Beach, FL

About Palm Beach In 1878 the Spanish ship Providencia, bound from the West Indies to Spain, went aground at Palm Beach, spilling its cargo of coconuts along the sandy, barrier island. When Henry Flagler visited the area in the early 1890s, he found a small community of settlers amid a growth of coconut palms. Recognizing the potential of South Florida, he chose Palm Beach () for the site of his next luxury hotel and laid out a fashionable resort that has retained the quiet charm and tropical beauty of his original vision.
