A stunning location for a romantic getaway or a family holiday. Blessed with one of the best beaches in the world, Palm Beach takes some beating.

Its pristine white talcum powder sandy beach entices you back time and again. Away from the beach, the evenings can be spent relaxing at your villa or enjoying the lively nightlife.
