Hypoluxo is nestled in the heart of Palm Beach County, Florida, on the shores of the Intracoastal Waterway between Lake Worth and Boynton Beach.
Hypoluxo is famed as the home of the “Barefoot Mailmen.” Back in 1885, the primitive communication lines between Jupiter and Miami were greatly expanded with the establishment of the Star Mail Route. E. R. Bradley (his namesake restaurant is a popular waterfront eatery in downtown West Palm Beach) was commissioned to take the mail by rowboat from the West Palm Beach terminus of the Celestial Railroad to Hypoluxo, then by foot along the beaches for the 60 miles to Miami -- a dangerous round trip that took six days. These Barefoot Mailmen are a true Florida legend.
