Bal Harbour

A Picturesque Hideaway Beside The Atlantic Ocean

BAL HARBOURA picturesque respite nestled beside the Atlantic Ocean coast, Bal Harbour is no doubt one of Florida’s most fashionable destinations. Located only fifteen minutes north of South Beach’s energetic whirlwind of activity, this quaint one-square-mile village is a favored hideaway of the rich and famous. One of the most affluent zip codes in the US, it truly personifies the concept of luxury living. With premium access to Miami Beach, Bal Harbour’s enclave of luxurious oceanfront condominiums, five-star resorts and spas and elegant homes tucked away on the bay behind gated communities ensure it stands as one of the finest neighbourhoods in Miami in terms of sheer value and luxury.

And the future of Bal Harbour looks even brighter. Soon to launch, the Fendi Chateau residences see the first foray by the brand into real estate, while the iconic Surf Club expansion by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Richard Meier sees a new home for the Four Seasons Hotel &Residences. Not to be outdone, the spectacular Oceana Residences offer 360-degree panorama of carefree glamor.

Beautiful real estate aside, its picturesque bays, ultra-exclusive boutiques, high-end gastronomical dining, gently swaying palm trees, sparkling blue water and surrounding green islands, Bal Harbour typifies tropical, sophisticated living at its finest.

A centerpiece of perfectly manicured shopping paradise, Bal Harbour’s shops have made it synonymous with chic designer style and a favourite with fashionistas from across the globe. Despite being often compared to other great fashion destinations, like New York’s Fifth Avenue, Paris’ Champs Elysee and Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive, make no mistake with its Modern architectural style and tropical outdoor atmosphere, it’s a true slice of Miami.

With catwalks, shaded breezeways, landscaped palm trees, koi ponds and bright tropical flowers, limestone and marble fountains, it’s the elevated experience of intimate shopping that really defines Bal Harbour Shops. To claim it’s home to some of the world’s most famous high-end designer names would not be an idle boast. With names ranging from Chanel, Prada, Gucci, Balenciaga, Oscar de la Renta, Valentino, Jimmy Choo, Giuseppe Zanotti, Harry Winston, Bulgari, Chopard, Tiffany &Co, Van Cleef & Arpels, Hublot, IWC and Piaget, it’s commitment to exclusivity is unquestionable.

But Bal Harbour is more than shopping. Its marina offers direct access to the waterways of southern Florida and Miami Beach. Then, there’s the fine dining. Just as with everything else in this upscale neighbourhood, Bal Harbour offers the best culinary experience around, with a variety of cuisine that spans the world. You won’t find a lot of “watering holes” or casual dining options. Much like its shopping, it’s all about sophistication. A more casual experience, however, is never more than fifteen minutes away in Midtown or Downtown Miami.

So, if stretching out on a chartered yacht as it skims across the water, deep-sea fishing in the Gulf Stream, sinking a birdie on one of Bal Harbour’s beautiful golf courses or just relaxing on a sultry sun-soaked beach is your idea of paradise, this is the place for you.

Assuming a lack of traffic, one can reach South Beach or Bal Harbour from Sunny Isles in about half an hour.

While its once funky 50s motels and small beachfront hotels have now given way to premium high-rise apartments and condos, the atmosphere in Sunny Isles still remains uncrowded, understated and casual.
