Lush natural beauty, sunny bike paths, and colorful works of art.
On an island just below Miami Beach, the Village of Key Biscayne is a pocket of paradise. This charming neighborhood is nestled between two state parks, the Atlantic Ocean, and Biscayne Bay. Although the Village’s former coconut plantations have been replaced by luxury condos, no amount of development can disturb the vibrant, laid-back island culture of Key Biscayne.
From Ponce de Leon in 1513 to President Richard Nixon and his “Winter White House” in 1969, Key Biscayne has welcomed many well-known guests to its shores. Today, its residents, lush setting, and community art installations make it a rich and colorful place to live. Neighbors greet each other as they stroll or bike along the streets, which assume a sunlit glow.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Laid-back, beachy luxe, and plenty of outdoor activities.
Every weekend feels like a vacation, with boat trips out to the sandbar and long walks on the beach. For a change of pace, kids and parents alike will love swimming with dolphins or riding on water slides at the Miami Seaquarium.
Insular and community-driven, yet welcoming and accessible.
Boating, fishing, snorkeling, biking, tennis, paddle boarding—just name a sport and you’ll find teammates. The universities, art centers, and urban attractions of Miami are only a short car ride away, yet the Rickenbacker Causeway represents a four-mile buffer between the fast-paced metropolis and their own relaxing haven. For oceanfront dining, the Rusty Pelican Restaurant is the place to go for turquoise waters and pink skies at sunset.
Trading exhaust fumes for a salty sea breeze.
The same infrastructure that protects Key Biscayne’s island vibe can fill up with traffic during world-class events like the Miami Open Tennis Tournament and the annual Boat Show. Fortunately, most year-round residents don’t depend on cars to get around; they take golf carts, the island’s most popular mode of transportation. During rush hour on the road, the locals’ kayaks, jet skis, and motorboats cruise beneath the causeway as the traffic grinds above.
Resort-like amenities amid comfortable single-family homes.
Key Biscayne makes the most of its 1.4 square miles of real estate. To the northern end of town, you’ll find hotels and condos with resort-like amenities, while single-family homes are more common in the suburban south. Regardless of where you want to go on the island, you’ll never be more than a bike or golf cart rides away.
YOU'LL FALL IN LOVE WITH
Endless opportunities paired with small-town sensibility.
Despite its seemingly unlimited array of activities and cultural outlets, Key Biscayne upholds its friendly, coastal spirit. Unique culture, healthy lifestyle, and breathtaking natural beauty anchor the appeal of this unique oasis.
