Bay Harbor Islands - A Hidden Gem in Biscayne Bay

Updated: Jul 21, 2020

Bay Harbor Islands is situated in a Miami area that I have named "Miami's Paradise", when I was promoting One Bay Harbor, a high-end residential project I've built between 2015-2019. Incorporating Surfside, Bal Harbour, and Bay Harbor Islands, it's the perfect combination between peace of mind and access to the best spots in South Florida.

If tranquility is important for you, Bay Harbor is perfect, such as a secluded Islands in the middle of the ocean. Actually, that's exactly what Bay Harbor is, incrusted in the brightest waters of Biscayne Bay, you can access the ocean anytime via the Haulover Inlet, which, by the way, it's one of the main attractions of Miami's Paradise.

The Haulover Sandbar

Every day, but especially on the weekends and holidays, hundreds of boaters and watersports fanatics get together at the Haulover Sandbar, situated just a few minutes boating North from Bay Harbor Islands. There, you can dock your yacht, play with your jet ski, have drinks served by the Boat Bar, and even go to the beach, choosing between Bal Harbor or the Haulover Park Beach. You can watch the sunrise or the sunset. Either way, the natural show provided by Mother Nature will blow your mind.

The Best Schools in Miami

I know, not everything is fun and games, and you are probably asking yourself if this is a good area to raise your kids. And the answer is YES. The Ruth K. Broad is one of the best K-8 schools in Miami Dade County. The City of Bay Harbor does substantial investments in its facilities to accommodate all the students that are coming in every year, since the City has attracted new citizens from all over the country and the World.


Bay Harbor is near it all: the Bal Harbour Shop, the beach, restaurants, supermarkets. Driving around a golf cart is a possibility, although the Bay Harbor residents love to use electrical scooters, skateboards, and bicycles. It's the perfect atmosphere for a tranquil lifestyle.

City Planning

Shepperd Broad, the original planner and developer of the City in the 40's, designed it to have two separate islands, one to hold the single-family houses and another to accommodate multifamily projects.

Of course, the most desirable areas of both islands are the lots facing the water. You can have open-wide properties, overlooking the bay, or the houses and condo units facing the canal that goes between both islands, or the Indian Creek waterway, separating the East Islands from Bal Harbor on the North and Surfside on the South.
