Palm Beach County is home to numerous resort-style active adult communities.

As one of Florida's premier retirement meccas, Palm Beach County offers active adult living that rivals any found elsewhere in the state. Lush, resort-style communities fill the area, and proximity to the Atlantic Ocean results in beautiful weather with a year-round average of 78 degrees.

Palm Beach County stretches down Florida's Southeast coast from Jupiter to Boca Raton. There are plenty of activities throughout the area including golf, tennis, shopping, boating, fishing, visiting museums, and, of course, spending time on one of the area's beautiful beaches. Dozens of Palm Beach County's best active adult communities can be found in the coastal towns of Lake Worth, Boynton Beach, and Delray Beach.

Here are six active adult communities that are well worth a second look:

Venetian Isles 

Located in Boynton Beach, Venetian Isles is a stunning active adult community featuring 1,060 homes built by Lennar, Centex Homes, and Westbrooke. The 26,000-square-foot community clubhouse includes a wide range of popular amenities, such as a state-of-the-art fitness center, an outdoor resistance pool, sports courts, and a putting green.

Valencia Reserve

When GL Homes built their seventh community, Valencia Reserve, they created one of the finest active adult communities in South Florida. This Boynton Beach community offers a wide range of amenities and social activities, most of which will be planned around the 41,000-square-foot clubhouse. Upon completion, Valencia Reserve will feature 1,100 single-family homes, each designed with the needs of active adults in mind.

Avalon Estates

Those who love the Boynton Beach area but prefer a more intimate community would do well to consider Avalon Estates. This lovely, Mediterranean-style community features 365 homes built by Northstar Homes and Engle Homes. Though it is smaller in size, Avalon Estates offers many of the same resort-style amenities found in larger active adult communities.

Valencia Falls

Built by GL Homes, Valencia Falls is located just north of Boca Raton in beautiful Delray Beach. The grand, gated community is only 15 minutes from the beach but offers plenty of activities and amenities on its grounds. Valencia Falls' fabulous amenities include a 25,000-square-foot clubhouse, a beautiful resort-style outdoor pool area, sports courts, a fishing lake, and a putting green.


Prospective homeowners will appreciate the Italian-style flair displayed throughout the models in the Bellaggio community. In addition to its various amenities, this impressive community features 1,099 Mediterranean-style homes built by Ansca and Levitt & Sons. The community is located in Lake Worth, just minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, but it is also surrounded by scenic lakes, ponds, and lagoons, meaning that seventy percent of the homes in Bellaggio offer unobstructed views of the water.

Valencia Shores

With 1,143 single-family homes, Valencia Shores is one of the largest active adult communities in Palm Beach County. This beautiful Lake Worth community was built by GL Homes and features many impressive amenities. There are two spacious clubhouses, multiple outdoor swimming pools, sports courts, private massage rooms, fishing lakes, a cafe, a beauty salon, and much more. With so many amenities and social clubs, Valencia Shores is well-equipped to support even the lifestyles of even the most active adults.
