Bay Harbor Islands is a great community of full time family residents that enjoy the great quality of life in a waterfront community.
The Town of Bay Harbor Island is a mix of single family homes and mid-rise condominiums. Bay Harbor Islands is situated on two islands located in the northern portion of beautiful Biscayne Bay. The islands are walking distance to the beaches in Bal Harbor and Surfside. Bay Harbor enjoys a small central business district with shops, restaurants, banks and other convenient businesses, all within easy walking distance.
The Community Leaders have placed a smart growth model for the islands to prevent over-development or excessive density in the tranquil community.
The waterfront community boasts an active police force and the residents relax in the quiet town without the worries often found in a big city.
The local elementary school, Ruth K. Broad Bay Harbor K-8 Center, is rated an “A+” school. Residents also have access to the Nautilus Middle School and Miami Beach Senior High School for middle and teenage children.
The Town boasts parks, a city sponsored recreational program, and a free Minibus service that loops the islands free for residents, only adding to the small town feel and convenience.
Nearby beaches are just a few blocks away over a pedestrian friendly bridge to Bal Harbor and Surfside. The Bal Harbor Shops has some of the most exclusive retails stores in the country and Surfside has many wonderful restaurants and sidewalk cafes to enjoy.
With all the great aspects to Bay Harbor Islands, many residents rarely leave, but the City of Miami is minutes away. South Florida has many cultural and artistic activities from gallery walks to the restaurants and nightlife to amazing beaches. Miami International Airport connects South Florida the rest of the world and is only a short drive from Bay Harbor Islands.
