Singer Island, which is actually a peninsula, sprung up as a community of fishermen and squatters, who were attracted to the Island for its proximity to the fertile Gulf Stream. Named for Paris Singer, the sewing machine magnate, Singer collaborated with Addison Mizner (of Palm Beach fame) to build a luxurious resort, a hotel, and a 36 hole golf course on the Island to attract visitors. A 1928 hurricane and the 1929 stock market crash struck a mortal blow to Singer’s finances. Eventually most of Singer Island was sold to John D. McArthur, who was born in poverty but went on to become the wealthiest and largest landowner in the Palm Beach area. In the 1950s, Palm Beach County saw tremendous growth and the Island evolved into a resort for winter residents, and today is home to both part time and year rounders.
Singer Island is a perfect spot for all outdoor activities, including diving, snorkeling, boating, sailing, kiteboarding, kayaking and beautiful beaches for swimming and sunbathing. Nearby John D. McArthur State Park has 2 miles of pristine beaches, biking trails, mangrove forests and guided tours for the eco-minded visitor.
