VENETIAN ISLANDS

Welcome to Venetian Causeway - The Biscayne Island

An exclusive island and personal getaway
 
Phenomenal views of the bay and the skyline, lush vegetation, meticulously manicured lawns, and quiet seclusion await the fortunate few able to call Biscayne Island home.

Biscayne is part of the Venetian Islands, six man-made islands located in the waters of Biscayne Bay between mainland Miami and Miami Beach, Florida. The remaining five islands are San Marco, San Marino, Di Lido, Rivo Alto, and Belle Isle. The islands are connected to the mainland by the Venetian Causeway, a series of bridges over Biscayne Bay linking mainland Miami to the Venetian Islands and Miami Beach. The causeway is open to cars, bicycles, and foot traffic.

Biscayne Island is the closest to the mainland and part of Miami-Dade County. The island has a mix of luxury high-rise condominiums and stunning single-family homes. The causeway runs down the center of Biscayne Island, with condominiums and houses on either side.

At one time, Biscayne Island was only home to Viking Airport. Once the airport was decommissioned, the island was ripe for residential development. The houses on the island are a mix of architectural styles, everything from Mediterranean to contemporary designs. Many homes reside on the water and feature amenities like swimming pools, gyms, and tennis courts, while others are nestled inland and boast large lots.
 

What to Love

  • Luxury waterfront homes abound
  • Incredible views from every angle
  • Secluded yet close to everything
  • Spectacular views of the Miami skyline 

Local Lifestyle

Life on Biscayne Island is very exclusive. Only so many homes are built here, so having a property on the island comes with status. Wealthy locals enjoy properties that are just as breathtaking as the views surrounding them. Lush vegetation surrounds the island, with mature trees, manicured lawns, and peaceful parks weaving through the area’s residential spaces. Locals enjoy exploring the island, and it’s not unusual for groups to walk or bike along the causeway together. Fishing and boating are beloved pastimes. Many homes have docks; therefore, water access is not a problem. An added perk to living so close to the water is that locals are much more likely to see marine life like manatees and dolphins up close.

Biscayne Island features an ideal location. It is close to Miami’s world-renowned beaches and nightlife and the vibrant arts and entertainment scene on the mainland. Residents have everything they want at their fingertips or just minutes from their front door.
 

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Locals dine and shop in Miami Beach and downtown Miami. Visit Pao by Paul Qui at the Faena Hotel in Miami Beach for incredibly delicious Asian fusion dishes. While there, be sure to sit on the patio for stunning ocean views. If you’d rather dine on Japanese cuisine, stop inside Zuma Miami, whose spacious patio overlooks a sparkling and lively river. Those craving Italian flock to Il Gabbiano, a well-loved eatery known for its vegetarian and gluten-free options, hospitality, and outdoor terrace with views of the bay.
 
Residents head to Bayside Marketplace when they want to experience a wide range of entertainment. From premier restaurants and bars to boutique shops and various entertainment spots, Bayside Marketplace is the ultimate go-to destination for all ages.
 

Things to Do

Living on Biscayne Island means you do not have to travel far for first-rate entertainment. The Adrianne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts holds over 300 exciting events annually and is home to symphonies, Broadway shows, operas, ballets, and various festivals. It is only one mile away from Biscayne Island.

Sports and music enthusiasts will appreciate the less than two-mile trek to the FTX Arena, formerly the American Airlines Arena. This mixed-use space hosts concerts and other events when its home team, the NBA Miami Heat, is not playing.
 
With its spectacular beaches and entertainment options, who doesn’t want to visit Miami Beach? Locals living on Biscayne Island are only five miles away from this sandy seaside gem. After spending a day on the beach, head to the Port of Miami to watch cruise ships sail off into the horizon.
 
Bayfront Park, located two miles away from Biscayne Island, is where locals can play, exercise, or relax. The park also features an outdoor amphitheater and the Frost Museum of Science. Pet owners head to Margaret Pace Park to take advantage of its various green spaces and location right on Biscayne Bay.
