Indian Creek Island
There’s no commercial development on Indian Creek, but living in such close proximity to the mainland means you’re not far from activities. Take a trip to Bal Harbour Shops or get over to Surfside Beach for some tanning and swimming. If you stay on the island, you can enjoy the prestigious Indian Creek Country Club, which takes up most of the land on this island. Trust me, it’s not a shabby golf course.
You’ll likely have to leave the island to find the intense nightlife scene most Miami residents are used to. Miami Beach and all of its shenanigans is just 20 minutes away in average traffic. But if you’ve ever worried about safety in South Florida, you won’t have to here. The island has its own police department and an around-the-clock boat patrol. That’s a feature you’ll enjoy by day or night as it keeps rubberneckers away from the island where they might stop to peek at your mansion.
Where To Live:
If you decide to make Indian Creek your home, you’ve likely entered yourself in the running for breaking a Florida real estate record. Homes in the village regularly sell for unprecedented amounts in the tens of millions. With less than 50 homes on the island, you’ll be owning a prime piece of real estate on this 250-acre plot. Every home has a water view and a sizeable lot, which is harder and harder to come by in South Florida these days. Expect to pay at least $20 million to call Indian Creek home.

Fisher Island is the condominium version of Indian Creek — private island with residences around the edges and a country club in the middle — except Fisher Island is only accessible by boat or helicopter. Allison Island, Star Island and others in Biscayne Bay are also comparable.
