The Charms of Old Florida

The coastal fishing village of Lantana hasn’t lost any of its small-town allure.

Water is nearly everywhere you turn in Lantana, Florida. It all starts over at the beach. The town’s 8-acre beach has just under 800 feet of shoreline. When you walk in this sand, you’re walking in history, as the legendary “Barefoot Mailman” made this sand famous. In early pioneer days of The Palm Beaches, Lantana was an important stop along the famous mail carrier’s celebrated oceanside route. Of course, today you won’t find a modern postal jeep trekking through the sand, but the beach is terrific for spending time with family or building an impressive sandcastle.
Go west from the beach onto East Ocean Boulevard, over the bridge, to reach Lantana’s main corridor of small diners and boutiques. If you want waterside views for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, then pick from the various restaurants. Right from Bicentennial Park, start an expedition into two eco-marvels – Lake Worth Lagoon and the Intracoastal Waterway. You can drop in at Lyman Kayak Park to explore the waterway on your own, or head due south to Bar Jack Fishing for an unforgettable deep sea fishing adventure. Charters are flat-rate and provide you with guided assistance from a professional instructor.

If you want to rent a boat to venture out on your own, look no further than JetRide Boat & Jet Ski Club. Take a jetski like the Yamaha Waverunner out for a spin or cruise up and down the intracoastal waterway with the classy Hurricane 217. You’ll have the ultimate freedom, whether you want to go out for a long day of fishing or you just want to cruise around and explore the area. Boats are equipped with amenities like stereos and bimini tops for sun protection.
