Boca Raton's beachfront offers many super luxury options, most of which are condo complexes. Luxuria, Excelsior, and One Thousand Ocean lead the charge in the latter category, with residences selling between five and ten million dollars. However, Mandarin Oriental surpasses them all, sitting a mile off the beach in line with the billion-dollar Boca Resort and Club on Camino Real. It overlooks the golf course, fetching prices of around $15 million corresponding to valuations exceeding $2000 per square foot. To get close to Mandarin valuation levels, believe it or not, we have to go to another town - one surrounded by the Boca Raton-Delray corridor, namely, Highland Beach:

Homeowners in Ocean Place Estates can get all the action they like with a bike ride into the Boca Raton and Delray Beach downtown areas, offering hundreds of restaurants, bars, and entertainment options. Forty-four public and private golf courses are within a five-mile radius, as are upscale shopping malls, pickleball, tennis, kayaking, scuba diving, and other water sports.
