Bay Harbor Islands

Bay Harbor Islands

Situated between the larger centers of Aventura and Miami Beach and surrounded by the emerald waters of Biscayne Bay, the two man-made land masses that make up the town of Bay Harbor Islands in Miami-Dade CountyFlorida are connected to Miami's barrier beach and the western mainland by the Broad Causeway. On the mainland side, BHI is bordered by the city of North Miami, with the villages of Bal Harbour and Surfside to the east and the exclusive Indian Creek enclave to the south. 

BHI is home to a vibrant residential community. Housing options on the western island consist mostly of single-family homes; the eastern island offers mostly businesses and multi-family housing. Represented among BHI residents are a broad range of ethnicities including Colombian, Cuban, Peruvian, Venezuelan, Romanian and Turkish communities. Community events like story hour at the children's park and outdoor movies along the Kane Concourse shopping district help keep Bay Harbor Islands residents busy between January and May months that remain comfortable, with low temperatures in the 60s and the town is abuzz with activity during the spring and summer months.

Kane Concourse is the town's main retail strip, where you'll find boutique clothing jewelry shops, spas, and art galleries. Food is a big deal in Bay Harbor Islands. From Thai and sushi to kosher and the classic American steakhouse, options for visitors and year-rounders abound. The Palm restaurant is one of the greater Miami area's oldest fine dining establishments, offering Italian-American classics, steaks and seafood.

The sophistication and glamour of South Beach are just a few miles further down the main stretch of the barrier island, and the exclusive village of Indian Creek is just to the south. Miami offers endless daytime and nightlife options from museums and theater to clubs, concerts, world-class dining and history.
