About Delray Beach

Beautiful Delray Beach has been attracting visitors since the railroad chuffed though in 1896. In Delray the clubs and hotels tended to have a fairly liberal approach to prohibition, so it was the perfect getaway for both industrious folk and those whose business was a bit outside of the law. Today’s Delray still has a little of the roguish glamour, with a salt-kissed sophistication and laid-back vibe. Some of the best places to stay in Delray Beach are both beautiful and historic, though all of our Guru’s recommendations have everything we need for the perfect laid-back, modern city beach holiday.

What Not To Miss

  • Experience the natural beauty of Wakodahatchee Wetlands, a lovely tranquil spot teeming with wildlife from birds to alligators.

  • Or kick back and relax on the vast golden sands of Delray Municipal Beach - ideal for a family day out.
