The Beaches

Here is where the Atlantic Ocean merges with the Caribbean Sea, the sands turn white and soft and the waters touch the shoes in shades of light blue and clear aqua. They are connected by bridges to mainland Miami. Wide beaches stretch for miles and miles, from the North Shore Open Space Park to the southern end, South Beach, known for its international popularity with models and celebrities, and its early 20th-century architecture in the Art Deco Historic District with pastel-colored buildings, especially on Ocean Drive. However, there are many more beaches in between these two extremes, each having its own vibe.

Miami Beach

Miami Beach (We refer to the northern parts here, excluding South Beach) is often mistaken for a party destination. Many people don’t know that this area is great for family living. A considerable number of properties are located in upscale and quiet, often gated communities. Miami Beach offers single-family homes and condos ranging from the $300K to multi-million-dollar mansions in the sky.

South Beach

South Beach is known for its beaches and the glamorous scene, chain stores and fashion shops, but most of all, it’s well-preserved art deco architecture. Although this area is predominantly desired for its condos, some superb (waterfront and gated) single-family homes can be found on the Sunset Islands, The Venetian Islands and Hibiscus, Star and Palm Island.

Sunny Isles Beach

This predominantly condo market is home to many brand-new condos. This is a luxury condo market that boasts as one of the Miami area’s most stunning oceanfront vistas, for its glamorous residences, lavish amenities. If you love dining and culture, this a place to live, with world-renowned restaurants, nightclubs, and theaters. Plenty of outdoor activities, go to Oleta Park where you can run, jog, ride your bike or kayak through the mangroves or enjoy a picnic with family and friends. This is definitely a great place to call home.

Fisher Island

Fisher Island is an ultra-private and exclusive island just south of South Beach. The area offers luxurious condos, a private school for residents, golf courses, two marinas and tennis courts and can only be accessed by boat, ferry or helicopter. Many of the properties are used as second or third residences.


Surfside is a small oceanfront community in Miami Dade County, which borders Miami Beach in the South (87th Terrace) and with Bal Harbour in the North (96th street). Surfside is a desired residential area given its ideal location between Miami Beach and Bal Harbour as well as its direct ocean access. Surfside offers both single-family homes as well as condos, with an influx of ultra-luxury condos. Surfside’s city hall offers activities for everyone, classes on art or dancing and summer camp for children. It’s a small town but with lots to do and public schools are highly rated.

Bal Halbour

Bal Harbour is home to the famous Bal Harbour shops, St Regis Residences and the brand-new Oceana Bal Harbour. Once one of Miami’s most luxurious destinations, the area has been overshadowed by other areas. The Bay Harbor Islands have started to develop since the last condo boom and offer many brand-new (waterfront) boutique condos for a more attractive price than condos in neighboring Miami Beach.
