Welcome to Hillsboro Beach
Three miles long, 900 feet in width and loaded with pristine coastal living opportunities.
Perhaps you’ve heard of Hillsboro Mile? It’s a stretch of A1A in northeast Broward County that is dotted in some of the most immaculate and luxurious estates you’ll find in all of the Sunshine State. Take a drive down it, take in the massive entry gates and towering hedges and you’ll understand why it’s often referred to as “Millionaire Mile.” This stretch is just part of the Hillsboro Beach magic.
As of the 2020 census, approximately 2,000 folks call the town their home. Geographically, it runs south from Hillsboro Inlet north to Southeast 10th Street, or the Deerfield Beach line. East to west, it’s narrow, with residences and condominium complexes along A1A. The bulk of the estates (or Hillsboro Mile) is situated within its southern portion, with condos along its northern edge. Be it the expansive, ocean view abode of your dreams or the amenity-full condo life, you can find it in Hillsboro Beach.
What to Love
- Prime ocean view lots with expansive estates and coveted building opportunities.
- Intracoastal docking opportunities with access to the ocean (Hillsboro Inlet) within minutes.
- Seamless access to Deerfield Beach, Boca Raton and Pompano Beach for dining, shopping and nightlife.
However you may like the water – ocean or Intracoastal – it is central to Hillsboro Beach living. Perhaps one of the most unique set-ups in all of Broward County, many residences situated along the coveted Hillsboro Mile have both immediate ocean and Intracoastal access. Owners of these homes can simply stroll from their Atlantic-side abodes across A1A to their private docks. North of Hillsboro Mile, the condos span the classic Florida charm to the most modern of towers. Among the condominiums in Hillsboro Beach are Sea Club – with its own 9-hole pitch-and-putt golf course and marina – and the contemporary Rosewood Residences Hillsboro Beach with state-of-the-art fitness centers and an outdoor spa.
Landmark-wise, Hillsboro Beach is home to the Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse, which has regular tours, as well as the unique Barefoot Mailman Statue, located roadside at 1212 Hillsboro Mile.
Dining, Entertainment, Shopping
Entertainment, dining and shopping opportunities aplenty await within minutes of Hillsboro Beach.
Less than five minutes north of Hillsboro Beach’s northern limit, is the cozy and Bohemian core of Deerfield Beach. Known as “the bend,” (where A1A bends east then north) you’ll find a handful of locally-cherished restaurants include The Whale’s Rib seafood spot, Bru’s Room Bar & Grill and Amante’s Italian Cuisine.
Continuing south to Pompano Beach’s beach core – near where A1A intersects with Atlantic Boulevard – you have restaurant selections including Beach House Pompano, Lucky Fish and Oceanic. Just over the Intracoastal bridge is a Publix supermarket equipped with a pharmacy and liquor store.
Things to Do
For fishers, two world-class fishing piers are within 10 minutes of Hillsboro Beach – the Deerfield Beach International Fishing Pier and Pompano Beach Fisher Family Pier. Near both piers are sand volleyball courts which are typically bumpin’ (literally!) on mornings and the weekends. In Pompano Beach on the water and near the 14th Street bridge is a unique public kite beach. If you’ve ever wanted to give kiteboarding a whirl, this is the spot to do it, with certified instructors on-site for lessons. For Fort Lauderdale adventures, the “Venice of America” is approximately 20 minutes south.
