Make a holiday villa in Palm Bay your home away from home

The location of Palm Bay holiday rentals on the Space Coast makes them highly sought after by holidaymakers looking for variety. Glorious miles of uninterrupted beach line the coastal barrier islands, which shelter Florida's Intracoastal Waterway; perfect for safer and more adventurous watersports alike. With convenient access to the airports and amusement parks of Orlando, the Everglades to the southwest, and of course the fascinating NASA facilities at Cape Canaveral just up the coast, Palm Beach apartments and villas offer an array of entertaining options to fill up a holiday. All rentals at Palm Beach come equipped with air-conditioning and satellite or cable TV. Most also have access to a BBQ area and a pool.

Things to do

-Beaches: Literally miles of beaches border the Atlantic side of the barrier islands just a short drive over the bridge from adjacent Melbourne. Stretching to the horizon in either direction, Palm Bay accommodation guests are really spoiled for choice when it comes to finding a spot for the day.

-Watersports: Of course, with such unfettered access to the water on both the Intracoastal Waterway side and the Atlantic side of the barrier islands, watersports are a way of life here. Boating, fishing and waterskiing can all be catered to by many of the local marinas close to Palm Bay rentals. Surfing is popular on the ocean side, served by a large number of surf shops and rental outlets.

-Nature: Several nature preserves and state parks decorate the hinterland, but the big daddy of them all, the Everglades, with seven distinct ecosystems comprising over 4,000 square miles of wilderness, begins just south of Orlando. This behemoth stretches and widens all the way to the southern tip of Florida.

-NASA: The proximity of Kennedy Space Centre gave this entire stretch of seaboard the moniker 'The Space Coast'. The visitor centre itself is something to behold, and popular attractions include the Rocket Garden, the Atlantis Exhibit, and the unmissable Shuttle Launch Experience.

-Nightlife: As a popular tourist destination, the choice of evening entertainment is wide but essentially beach-centric. The seafront has the usual collection of seafood restaurants, beach bars and brewpubs, with a smattering of live-music venues and high energy dance clubs, as well as more refined bars and restaurants for the quieter crowd.

Weather in Palm Bay

Florida's subtropical climate manifests as long, hot, rainy summers and short, mild dry winters, which respectively comprise the wet and dry seasons that become more pronounced closer to the tropics. The humidity in the summer is what gives rise to the elevated precipitation, which falls mainly during afternoon or evening thunderstorms. Temperatures don't get that high, topping out in the mid-30s°C, but the humidity exaggerates the effect. Winters parody British summers, with temperatures in the low-20s and little rain; no coincidence that this period is Florida's high season.

Travel to Palm Bay

At only seven miles away, Melbourne International Airport is the closest flight option, but has no direct flights to Europe (the 'international' label coming from non-US North American destinations). For direct flights to Europe or the UK, Orlando International Airport is 66 miles away and Orlando-Sanford International Airport a little further at 80 miles distant. Of course, in America, a fly/drive package is by far the best option, as public transport suffers from a woeful lack of attention. But for those who like the idea of an iconic long distance bus ride, Melbourne, the city just to the north, does have a Greyhound station.
