Map of Palm Beach County

Palm Beach County can be roughly divided into three distinct regions, East, West, and Lakeside.

  • The eastern portion of the county buffers the Atlantic Ocean, and is home to the majority of developed metropolises and urban population centers both up and down the coastline (and slightly further inland).
  • Western Palm Beach County is largely rural; home to a handful of small towns and farming communities scattered throughout, as well as wide swaths of environmental conservation zones.
  • Lakeside would include cities bordering Lake Okeechobee along the northwestern corner of the county, such as Belle Glade and Pahokee.
