Sunset Islands are purely residential. You won’t find cafes or shops here to busy yourself by day. If you’re looking to spend a weekend at home, you’ll likely do it from your pool or atop your boat. But if you’re willing to brave the Miami Beach parking and traffic, you’ll be heavily rewarded with some of the best shopping the country’s eastern coast has to offer. Miami Beach Golf Club is also just seconds away and worth a regular visit.
It wouldn’t be an evening on the Sunset Islands without a sunset. Watch as the sun disappears over the Miami skyline to the west as you get ready to hit the town. You can easily leave the islands for an evening in the city on Miami Beach. Home to locals and international tourists, every night out is a cultural experience. The Miami Beach Convention Center and the home of the New World Orchestra are practically in your backyard. Hit the town to catch a show when some of the biggest acts come to visit.
Where To Live:
Four individual, manmade islands comprise Sunset Islands, which float just off the west coast of Miami Beach in Biscayne Bay. North of Venetian Islands and south of the Interstate 95 bridge, you’re centrally located in the Miami Beach region. Home prices here range depending on the island and how close the property is to the water. You can secure a home on the low end at $5 million or splurge on a mansion upwards of $30 million. Labeled Sunset I through Sunset IV, each is gated with a private entrance.
