Hibiscus Island is part of a collection of man-made islands in between mainland Miami and Miami Beach. Hibiscus Island is accessible via Palm Island and both are guarded 24 hours a day and offer a residential and secure lifestyle within the heart of Miami. Homes on Hibiscus Island are in a variety of architectural styles and there are properties on dry lots as well as waterfront homes. This neighborhood's access to Downtown and Miami Beach, coupled with the views of Biscayne Bay, Miami Beach, and Downtown Miami, make this neighborhood one of the most desirable in Miami.
Hibiscus Island is equidistant from South Beach and mainland Miami, making a commute to Miami's commercial center, and the amusements of South Beach simple via MacArthur Causeway. The famous restaurants, shops, and beaches are all under ten minutes, and Hibiscus Island is iconic in its own rite with a wealth of history and historic homes lining the water. Boating is a regular pastime of residents choosing Hibiscus Island and there are no fixed bridges, which allow for boats of various sizes to be easily moored in the neighborhood. Hibiscus and Palm Island also share a community area with basketball and racquetball courts, a children's park, and tennis courts.
