Coconut palms are a reliable sign of mild winters: in the US, the trees don’t grow in California (still too much risk of a chill), but since a Spanish ship carrying 20,000 coconuts beached itself on a Florida sandbar in 1878, the trees have thrived in the resort city that now bears their name.

Going back to the days of its first coconuts, the resort was a favourite winter escape for Gilded Age tycoons.
