Incorporated in 1939, the town of Hillsboro Beach provides select services such as a police department, water treatment plant and wells. Others piggyback on Broward County and Deerfield Beach. Its historic lighthouse marking the Florida Reef’s north end is a well-recognized local treasure. Accessible by one road—AIA—and surrounded by several upscale communities such as Sea Ranch Lakes and Lighthouse Point, the community benefits from heightened security and a small-town feel.
An unusually amazing selection of golf courses is nearby including Pompano Beach Country Club, Deerfield Country Club, Royal Palm Country Club and Boca Raton Country Club. Deerfield Island Park is a popular respite in the Intracoastal. Within a short distance, Fort Lauderdale’s and Boca Raton’s cultural institutions, restaurants and stores await with highlights like Mizner Park shopping center and amphitheatre, Galleria Mall and the Bonnet House Museum & Gardens.
Extending 3.2 miles from the Hillsboro Inlet, Hillsboro Beach is bordered by Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Intracoastal Waterway to the west.
