Welcome to Delray Beach

Small-town feel in this “village by the sea”
A vibrant coastal community with a small-town vibe, Delray Beach is nestled perfectly between Boynton Beach and Boca Raton. Known as the “village by the sea”, Delray Beach is unpretentious, offering residents and visitors a wide variety of attractions and activities that include white sandy beaches, trendy restaurants, and shopping. It is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Florida, revered amongst young professionals, families, retirees, and tourists alike.  
Delray Beach evolved from an agricultural community and is now a bustling city. Incorporated in 1923, Delray Beach has seen large-scale renovations to its downtown area and today is considered a leading force in Florida's growing historic preservation movement. As you drive through the city, you’ll pass iconic landmarks including The Colony Hotel, Old School Square, and the John and Elizabeth Shaw Sundy House. 
Nowadays, Delray Beach is a growing market that continues to rise: people are drawn to its properties because the community offers such an exceptional quality of life. With an approximate year-round population of 70,000 residents, Delray Beach is neither too small nor too large. It’s the perfect small-town in Florida’s luxurious East Coast.
