Incorporated in 1946, This Exclusive beach town at the northern tip of Miami Beach is a pedestrian-friendly community of beautiful homes, world-class resorts and shops. Bal Harbour’s natural style is also complemented by its artistic sensibilities. One example is Unscripted Bal Harbour, a public art initiative whose Art Access program for residents and visitors provides free admission to, and private tours of, the area’s top museums and private collections.
Upscale on a scale of its own, Bal Harbour Shops keeps the village feel going with open-air walkways, fountains and palms leading the way to a collection of shops that represent the crème de la crème of the retail universe – Aquazzura, Bulgari, Carolina Herrera, Chanel, Escada, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi, Goyard, Gucci and many more.
When visiting Bal Harbour Shops, you can recharge at one of the several restaurants and cafes such as Makoto, a high-end Japanese eatery, or Le Zoo, a French brasserie.
Bal Harbour is also home to luxurious hotels: The Ritz-Carlton, Bal Harbour; Sea View Hotel and The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort.
Long walks on the beach were practically invented in this waterfront haven just north of Miami Beach. While in Surfside take advantage of the Surfside Community Center, home to a recreation pool with lap lanes, plunge pool and slide, a children’s activity pool, Jacuzzi and walk-up café. Surfside also has a world-class tennis facility, playgrounds, beachside path, and a dog park.
Next to Surfside’s Community Center is a public art exhibition featuring the Florida Loggerhead Sea Turtle. “Turtle Walk,” located on 93rd Street between Collins and Harding avenues, is home to 13 turtle sculptures by South Florida artists. Steps away from the ocean, Downtown Surfside, located on Harding Avenue between 94th and 96th streets, satisfies retail cravings with its stylish boutiques. In these two blocks, you will encounter a collection of fine jewelers, salons, clot boutiques, restaurants and more. Harding Avenue is also home to a delicious collection of restaurants.
The Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club opened in early 2017, occupying nine acres of oceanfront and gardens in Surfside.
Bal Harbor Islands is a community of fine homes and apartments, schools, retail shops, restaurants, municipal facilities and professional businesses separated from the mainland by Broad Causeway.
While providing residents with all the services of larger municipalities, Bal Harbor Islands maintains a small-town touch. Visit Kane Concourse for shopping, fine dining and art such as Robert Indiana’s “Love” sculpture and a Romero Britto “Heart” in the town center.
