A man-made island located in Miami’s coveted Biscayne Bay, Palm Island is home to some of Miami Beach’s most luxurious and exclusive real estate offerings. Surrounded on all sides by the Biscayne Bay’s crystal clear blue waters, Palm Island is a boater’s dream, with many of the homes offering upwards of 100 feet of waterfront docking space. In addition to the gorgeous estates located on the island, you’ll often see some of the world’s most luxurious yachts docked in their front yards.


No two homes on Palm Island are alike. Many are historic and have been around for years, while others are modern and offer the newest technologies and amenities. Homes range in style from the Art Deco architecture characteristic of the Miami area to Mediterranean estates to modernist mansions, as well as in price from just under $3,000,000 to over $30,000,000. The average listing price of homes on Palm Island is around $11,500,000.


Sandwiched between downtown Miami and South Beach, all the Miami area has to offer is just moments away, from business-oriented skyscrapers to Art Deco hotels, fine dining, and world-class shopping. Many high profile figures have called Palm Island home over the years, from the infamous Al Capone to journalism mogul Barbara Walters, mostly thanks to the privacy and security the island offers. The island is secured 24/7, only accessible to residents and their private guests.

Palm Island is connected by a bridge to Hibiscus Island, another man-made island in the Bay to the North, where more magnificent homes can be found. The two islands share an impressive park, which trumps any typical recreational area, that features tennis courts, a basketball court, a playground, and racquetball courts, making it a very family friendly community. Palm Island is desirable for many reasons, however its proximity to popular areas like South Beach as well as the sheer magnificence and exclusivity of the homes makes it unlike any other community in the area.

With such accessibility to the water, boating and the beach lifestyle is a large part of what makes this community what it is today. While you may choose to simply get around by boat, MacArthur Causeway, the main roadway that connects Downtown Miami with Miami Beach is just outside Palm Island’s gates making every day conveniences as well as indulgent amenities easily accessible.
