An Insider’s Guide to Miami Beach

by | Jun 30, 2022

The City of Miami Beach is a coastal resort city in Miami-Dade County, Florida, United States. Artificial and natural barriers make up much of the city’s territory and the surrounding metropolitan area making it the second-largest city on the US mainland after New York City.

The total population is estimated at over 90,000 people. The city’s economy is primarily based on tourism, with an estimated 20 million visitors coming to the city annually. Miami Beach is also a global hub of culture, arts, entertainment, and nightlife. It has been ranked as one of the top travel destinations in the world.

South Beach, located on the southernmost tip of the island, is one of the most popular tourist destinations and exclusive neighborhoods in Miami Beach. The area is known for its historic art deco district, white sand beaches, clear blue waters, and lively nightlife. Miami Vice and Burn Notice are just a few of the television shows and movies that have been filmed in South Beach.

Luxury property values in Miami Beach have also been among the highest in the United States for several years. The real estate market continues to be strong in the community. In 2012, Forbes magazine named Miami Beach one of the most expensive places in the United States.

Because of this, many of the city’s residents are wealthy, and the cost of living is high.

Living The High Life in Miami Beach

The city’s tropical climate, beautiful beaches, and luxury lifestyle make it a popular destination for the rich and famous. And really, who can blame them?

Miami Beach is a playground for the renowned and prosperous, where they can enjoy the sun, sand, and surf in luxury. The city is home to some of the most exclusive real estate in the country and high-end shops, restaurants, and clubs.

Downtown Miami, for instance, is home to a plethora of luxury high-rise condos, such as the Aston Martin Residences and 1000 Museum. These buildings offer stunning views of the city skyline and Biscayne Bay and come with all the amenities you would expect from a five-star hotel, including concierge service, valet parking, swimming pools, a fitness center, and much more.

The area is also known for its Financial District, with corporate headquarters for many multinational companies. Expats who work in the financial sector will feel right at home in Miami Beach.

In the heart of South Beach also lies the Miami Beach Convention Center, which hosts a variety of trade shows and events throughout the year. This is just one more reason Miami Beach is a popular destination for business travelers.

But it’s not all work and no play in Miami Beach.

The city also offers a variety of leisure activities, such as golfing, tennis, yachting, and fishing. Art galleries located in the Wynwood Arts District and the Miami Design District are worth checking out. In recent years, these two districts have become a place of interest for tourists due to craft breweries and street murals from artists in the US, Latin America, and Europe.

Of course, no visit to Miami Beach would be complete without spending some time on its world-famous beaches. At the northern end of Miami Beach is Sunny Isles Beach, known for its luxury high-rise Miami condos and hotels. This is a great place to walk, relax in the sun, or enjoy some people watching.

Miami Beach’s Most Exclusive Condominium Living

If you’re looking for a place to call home in Miami Beach, you’ll be spoiled for choice. The city’s luxury condo market is booming, with new developments popping up all over the place. Whether you’re searching for a home with stunning sea views or a secluded beachfront haven, Miami Beach has something to offer.

The Beach House 8 in Collins Avenue is one of the newest developments in the city. This ultra-luxury condo complex with artistic architecture makes it a haven for those who appreciate elegance and infuses modern living with the beach lifestyle.

Modern European furnishings and appliances, private plunge pools, and floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views of the city and the ocean are just features that make this development stand out from the rest. Double-ovens by renowned brand Miele are generously included in each unit, making it a unique touch.

If you’re looking for something more secluded, Monaco Yacht Club & Residences might be more your style. This beachfront development is located within the Intracoastal Waterway. It features a private marina and a stunning view of Downtown Miami.

Designed by Italian designer Piero Lissoni, the development includes luxurious amenities such as a 5,900 square foot rooftop terrace with a pool, jacuzzi, and sun deck – complete with plush lounge chairs and cabanas.

Entertainment options nearby are abundant, such as golf courses and upscale bars. If you can tear yourself away from this oasis, you’ll find that the development is just minutes away from the Art Basel show and other world-renowned art galleries in Miami Beach.

Luxury Waterfront Homes in Miami Beach for a More Relaxing Lifestyle

Miami Neighborhoods

Not everyone is looking for a high-rise condo in the middle of the action. If you prefer a more laid-back lifestyle, plenty of Miami waterfront homes are available in Miami Beach.

Palm Avenue is an up-and-coming neighborhood with several luxury waterfront homes that offer stunning views of Biscayne Bay. Marble bathrooms, a private pool, and a summer kitchen are just some of the features of these homes.

Some of the homes in this area come with their private dock, which is perfect for those who love to go boating or fishing. You can also enjoy a game of tennis or golf at one of the nearby country clubs.

San Marino Drive is another neighborhood to explore if you’re looking for a waterfront home. This area is known for its canals and Venetian-style houses. Most luxury homes in this area come with a private pool, and some even have their own elevator.

If you’re looking for a more secluded spot, La Gorce Island is the perfect place to call home. This private island is only accessible by bridge and is home to some of Miami Beach’s most exclusive residences.

Since Miami Beach is part of Greater Miami, including South Florida, families and young professionals can enjoy all the benefits of living in a big city while still having access to the beach.
