Welcome to Miami Beach
A luxurious tropical paradise boasting five-star restaurants, opulent residences, and exciting nightlife
Miami Beach is known worldwide as a premier location for living the good life. With fantastic weather, direct access to beautiful beaches, iconic architecture, exceptionally rich and diverse culture, exciting nightlife, and extraordinary cuisine, it’s one of the most sought-after places to call home. Residents are rarely more than a few blocks from everything they need, making this a very pedestrian-friendly town. Sitting between the Atlantic Ocean to the east and Biscayne Bay to the west, beautiful views are found around every corner, and there’s always a perfect spot to watch the sunrise and sunset. The architecture of Miami Beach is distinctively Art Deco, accented by vibrant color and details that enhance a tropical seaside vibe. In South Beach, most residents live in luxurious low-rise or high-rise apartments and condominiums. In the somewhat quieter, more laidback neighborhoods of North Miami Beach, Mid-Beach, and the exclusive private islands in the area, the options for residential living include large and elegant single-family homes.
Miami Beach is a melting pot of cultures from around the globe. These cultural influences are evidenced in the variety of fabulous restaurants and clubs found in every corner of the community. Ocean Drive, the most famous street in Miami Beach, runs parallel to the Atlantic Ocean and is where residents and tourists alike go to find the best restaurants, bars, and nightlife. Although Miami Beach is a busy, high-energy community, it is counterbalanced by a laid-back island atmosphere. Residents spend time outside walking, hiking, biking, skating, boating, doing yoga, playing volleyball, or just chilling on the beach.
