MIAMI BEACH

Welcome to Miami Beach

Vibrant metropolitan amenities meet resort-style beach living
 
Miami Beach is known for its pristine beaches, turquoise waters, and an affluent lifestyle. Many come to its shores to bask in the sun and party like rockstars and even more call this exclusive city their home. Living in Miami Beach is like being on vacation every day.

Outsiders are often surprised that Miami and Miami Beach are different places. The city of Miami is on the mainland, and Miami Beach is on a barrier island off its coast, with the Biscayne Bay lying between the two. Miami Beach is about nine miles long and one mile wide, and most people get to the island by driving over one of the causeways.

Miami Beach has four sections, South Pointe, South Beach, Mid Beach, and North Beach. They each have distinct characters and features. No matter what part of the city you live in, you are never too far from premier restaurants, upscale boutiques, and numerous activities.

South Pointe is on the southern tip of the island. Locals call it South of Fifth because it is south of Fifth Street. This small neighborhood is near South Pointe Park and South Pointe Pier and just a short distance from the action of South Beach. Prominent executives and celebrities live in this area.

North of Fifth Street lies the famous South Beach (or SoBe). The pastel-colored Art Deco buildings from television and movies are located on Ocean Drive. Another must-see is the famed Lincoln Road, where everyone goes to dine, shop, and people-watch. Of course, South Beach is also legendary for its late-night club scene.

Mid Beach is the narrow strip of land in the middle of the island. It is an eclectic mix of old and new Art Deco and Miami Modern (MiMo) styled condominiums and hotels. Mid Beach is a happy medium between the north and south sections of the island. It has chic hotels and nightclubs like South Beach and an easygoing atmosphere like North Beach.

North Beach has fewer tourists. It is more walkable and less crowded than the rest of the city, and residents like it that way. Lavish high-rise hotels and condominiums dot the beach, while older condominiums and single-family homes are found inland. Mid-rise condominiums and houses, some in the Miami Modern style, line the Intracoastal Waterway along the island.
