Highland Beach is a small coastal city just North of Boca Raton. The city is almost all homes and high-rise condos apart from the Delray Sands Resort and a real estate office. Being oceanfront and next door to one of the wealthiest cities on the coast, people often think Highland Beach is just a section of Boca. It was named for its relative higher elevation than the areas around it. Many condo shoppers that don’t worry about the address not being Boca Raton choose this area. Its located just North of the beautiful Red Reef Park along the ocean. Highland Beach is a great choice for buyers that like the occasional bustling nightlife scene, but prefer quieter surroundings and an ocean view in many cases.
