Hypoluxo is nestled in the heart of Palm Beach County, Florida, on the shores of the Intracoastal Waterway. We are just minutes from West Palm Beach and a mere stone's throw from the sandy Atlantic beaches. The name Hypoluxo comes from the Seminole name for Lake Worth, roughly translated"water all 'round -- no get out."
The Town of Hypoluxo has a rich history of "Barefoot Mailmen". In the late 19th century, the mail was being delivered by boat and railway for most towns. When the mail came into Hypoluxo by rowboat from West Palm Beach, there was not a direct route to deliver letters to Miami. Hypoluxo's postmaster commissioned "barefoot mailmen" to walk the 60 miles along the beaches to deliver the mail to Miami. On average a "barefoot mailman", could complete the route within 6 days round-trip.
