Located in West Bradenton, Palma Sola Trace is a collection of homes, condominiums, and townhouses that combines convenience with a great quality of life developed by Taylor Morrison.

It all began with the Palma Sola Golf Club in 1968. This quickly became a hit with golfers and one of the best places to live in West Bradenton. It remained that way for nearly 36 years and in 2005 and 2006 a brand new planned community began construction, today known as Palma Sola Trace. The community is a mix of 546 condominiums, villas, and single-family homes.

During construction in the community, a worker laying sewer pipes uncovered a 6-foot tusk, a 5-foot thigh bone, and a jawbone belonging to a Columbian mammoth, a larger but less-hairy version of the woolly mammoth, which is displayed in Bradenton’s South Florida Museum.

Palma Sola Trace is a maintenance-free, beautifully landscaped community with native plants, flowers shrubs, trees, and many small ponds throughout. It features a lagoon-style pool, fitness center, and a community room, which is an excellent place to enjoy the Palma Sola Trace lifestyle.

This active community hosts everything from book clubs, yoga, parties, and holiday activities. It’s the ideal lifestyle for either the sports enthusiast or nature-seeking adventurist alike. Located just 3 miles to the world-famous white sandy beaches, a block from Palma Sola Bay, and walking distance to several shops and restaurants. It’s also located within close proximity to several golf courses, the IMG Academy, and the Cortez Fishing Village.
