  The Beaches of Lantana
By Nicholas Jurkowski

Lantana is a small seaside village in Palm Beach County just minutes from West Palm Beach. Preserved in Lantana is that Old Florida small-town-fishing-village charm, and it is a popular winter destination for a large number of Floridians and others. It is both one of the oldest and smallest settlements in Palm Beach County, and is a great place to go to relax. In general, I?d recommend it to those who are looking to visit the Palm Beach region and want a fairly quiet, relaxing town to use as their base for excursions into other communities (Palm Beach and Delray Beach are both very close, and there are great fishing charters that sail out of nearby Boynton Beach). That being said, there are some very nice attractions in Lantana, most notably, its fine beach.

Lantana?s beach offers quite a lot to the casual beach-goer. The dunes surrounding the beach make for great hiking opportunities, while the beach itself is quite nice, and features a playground for the kids (or large creepy men). The beach also features an inshore reef and restaurant, and so it is a perennial destination for SCUBA divers, birdwatchers, and gluttons.

Lantana is a very nice little spot, and is the perfect base for exploring Palm Beach County. Naturally, you?ll need some transportation from Lantana to your vacation destinations, and as such, you should consider Mirage Limo. Mirage serves all of Palm Beach County, and can take you from where you are staying in Lantana to all of Palm Beach?s famous destinations ? from the upscale shops and restaurants of Palm Beach to the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. Lantana is the perfect alternative place to stay for people who want to escape the crowds and settle into Old Florida life.
