Welcome to Bal Harbour, FL
A quiet oceanfront village tucked away from the rest of Miami Beach.
Welcome to the center of lavish luxury, tucked away in the exclusive and private northern tip of Miami Beach. This contemporary village setting demonstrates impeccable style, and top-notch, world-class oceanfront residences. Bal Harbour’s pristine beaches mirror its residents, ultra-chic, and high-class - comfortable in their own private paradise, with natural pristine white sand beaches and a serene energy that embodies the area.
While Bal Harbour’s expensive shorefront shops and gated single-family homes may be the pinnacle of luxury, this village also offers a moderate middle-class suburban community with strong family ties and stylish Miami Modern single-family homes. Bal Harbour’s new developments prove that there is much ground to be broken still. If living on the most peaceful development of a world-class beach sounds good to you, then look no further than Bal Harbour.
What to Love
- Exclusive, gated communities
- High-end shopping close to the beach and community
- Lavish oceanfront resorts
Bal Harbour's two main areas are joined by bridges, and both sides share a relaxed vibe and sunny, relatable, and down-to-earth vibe, despite the luxurious environment. Bal, and its nearby companion, Bay Harbour are both peaceful coastal towns and the local residents fit the bill perfectly, while also enjoying infamously high-class shopping and award-winning restaurants.
Locals spend their days taking walks along the pristine sandy beaches, eating lunch and drinking cocktails by the pool or beach, and frequenting the indoor and outdoor malls in the area, like the area’s popular Bal Harbour shops
- an open-air mall with upscale shopping and dining. Residents here expect the ordinary (of course, Bal Harbour’s ordinary is everyone else’s extraordinary), and like things to stay familiar. If you’re looking for vibrant nightlife then another Miami Beach option may be better as the pace here is meant to be slow and steady. However, if you like world-class shopping and beautiful beaches and residences in a small and tucked-away paradise then you’ve got the right spirit for Bal Harbour.
