Top 3 Summer Islands BallenIsles Members Retreat To  When you live in Palm Beach County full time, what beach would call your name for a summer vacation? Three top hot foreign hotspots keep popping up among residents at BallenIsles and each one is a destination worth traveling to. 

1. St. Barths 

Often frequented by the rich and famous, St. Barths offers eight square miles of fabulous beaches well–adorned with luxury yachts, designer boutiques, and a diverse selection of internationally renowned hotels. Getting to the island is easiest by plane, but also accessible by boat. 

2. Anguilla 

A slow-paced an relaxed atmosphere is found on Anguilla where you’ll find beautiful white sane beaches, turquoise waters, scenic bays, gentle breezes and palm trees as far as the eye can see. When not laying by the beach, days in Anguilla are often full of fun activities like horseback riding, fishing, snorkeling, restaurant hopping and more. Anguilla is also accessible by sea or air.

3. The Bahamas 

Probably the most preferred destination by Floridians, The Bahamas has something for everyone. Nassau and Paradise Island are always buzzing with exciting day and night life for all ages. Wildlife lovers may visit Andros, home to the world’s third largest fringing barrier reef. Quick trip? No problem, Bimini is super close to Florida and easily accessible by boat. Colonial charm and excellent bone-fishing can be found in The Abacos. But should you prefer to see the very clearest waters in The Bahamas, perhaps you’d select The Exumas. 

Between North Palm Beach County Airport less than 15 minutes away for jet owners and the local commercial flight access by way of Palm Beach International and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airports choosing to take week-long getaway is simple for members at BallenIsles. And with the added inspection officers and ramped up technology at the South Florida international airports, getting through U.S. Customs and Border Protection is a breeze. But no matter how many beautiful and exotic places residents travel to, they’re always happy when they come home and hang their hat at BallenIsles. To learn more about membership opportunity click here.

Jillian Bourdage and Katie Williamson are longtime friends and couldn't have been more happy to be paired up with one another.

"The secret to playing well with your partner is trusting them," said Bourdage, " and we have so much trust."

"We don't get nervous because we know each other are going to back each other up."added Williamson.
