Unlike many of the islands on Miami Beach, the island of Key Biscayne is a product of nature, with long miles of beachfront. Aesthetics aside, its true appeal lies in its popularity with families who appreciate the number of beachfront recreational areas like Crandon Park (ranked among the nation’s top beaches) and Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Recreation area, both with beautiful beaches and lots of amenities. The island also is home to the Crandon Golf Course and the tennis at Crandon Park, where the grand slam Sony Ericsson Open Tennis Tournament is played. With so much located right on the island, Key Biscayne provides a safe and essentially all-inclusive living experience coupled with top-notch real estate.
Key Biscayne real estate is a mix of single family homes as well as condos and gated communities. Among the most in-demand condos in Key Biscayne is the quintet of properties known as The Ocean Club and The Grand Bay Residences. Thus, whether you’re seeking an island home by the waterfront or a condo unit with lots of features, you’ll find it in Key Biscayne.
With a fine mix of restaurant and shops, from spas and salons to grocery and gourmet markets, from boutiques and furniture/design to sporting goods and pharmacies, one can find everything on the all inclusive Village of Key Biscayne.
When you do venture off the island, there is a variety of choices for every activity. Downtown Miami is a neighbor to Key Biscayne and it’s where many of Miami-Dade County’s largest attractions and entertainment venues are such as the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, the American Airlines Arena, and the Miami Art Museum. The Bayside Marketplace has been around for a number of years and its open-air shopping and dining never gets old. Plus, the newest area shopping venue, Mary Brickell Village offers a range of shops and restaurants.
