The Bal Harbour and Bay Harbor Islands area offers a peaceful beachside living experience, as well as internationally famous shopping destinations. Easily accessible by bridges from bustling Miami, the area seems immune to its urban chaos - though it is located at the northernmost tip of Miami Beach.
Bay Harbor is a village located in Miami Beach. The area comprises two islands, Broadview and Bay Harbor, which work together to create a laid back and sunny disposition. Bal Harbour is also part of Miami Beach, but is much smaller with only ten blocks at its northernmost boundary.
WHAT TO EXPECT
This area is fairly quiet, which is how they like it.
The beach in Bal Harbour is one of the most protected and pristine in Miami. The weather is generally balmy there, with few exceptions.
Situated at the northernmost tip of Miami Beach, Bal Harbour is a small, affluent town with a population of just over 3,000. Spanning just over 10 blocks, Bal Harbour runs north to south from Haulover Inlet to 96th Street and is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay. Although downtown Miami is a mere 40 minutes drive away, the hustle and bustle of the big city never seems to encroach upon daily life here, and tranquility reigns supreme.
Afternoons spent at the mall, lunch on the pool deck of your building and walks along the beach - that's what Sunday mornings look like when you live close to the water!
Residents make good use of the area's greatest asset, which is its beach. The Bal Harbour Shops and Bay Harbor Islands' Main Street are notable exceptions as they offer upscale shopping and dining experiences away from the beach.
Bal Harbour is a tight-knit community, with day-to-day life revolving around the pristine beach, luxury shopping, and excellent restaurants.

Bal Harbour's village setting and tree-lined sidewalks make it a supremely walkable neighborhood. Residents can easily stroll or bike to cafes, shops, and the beach.
The convenient location of Bal Harbour makes it easy for residents to drive to downtown Miami in under forty minutes and Fort Lauderdale in half an hour.
