Laid-back oceanfront living at a leisurely speed.
North Beach is a true neighborhood with a strong local identity. This eclectic town is exalted for its community restaurants and businesses, beachfront high-rises, and unadulterated stretches of beautiful sand.
North Beach is most famous for its Collins Avenue high-rises and hotels that, unlike those in South Beach, allow residents to walk straight from the building to the beach. Away from the shoreline, North Beach is a diverse and vibrant community with an unmistakable small-town feel.
WHAT TO EXPECT
An ocean-centric lifestyle complemented by cultural outlets like the North Beach Bandshell.
The architecture here generally forgoes the Art-Deco style in favor of a more mid-century, MiMo approach. Away from the iconic resort strip, the suburbs of North Beach are characterized by traditional, Florida-style mid-rises.
Amenity-rich high-rises, beach walks at dawn, community sensibility, and plenty of tennis and golf.
If you purchase a condo in a building along the shore, you’ll likely enjoy full valet and concierge services, private beach cabanas, pools, tennis courts, and yachting access. Many dining and shopping options are concentrated in the nearby Bal Harbour and Aventura malls, which are some of Miami’s finest.
WHAT NOT TO EXPECT
While dining and shopping are excellent, those looking for endless options may be disappointed.
North Beach lacks the unlimited restaurants and retail of urban or suburban areas, so those opposed to a routine may be underwhelmed by the selection.
High-rises line Collins Avenue as well as MiMo homes and mid-rises near the Intracoastal.
Further from the shoreline are single-family homes and condominiums that are slightly older and more accessible.
YOU'LL FALL IN LOVE WITH
Yacht culture, entrepreneurial spirit, and bountiful amounts of beachfront.
Away from the hustle and bustle of mainland Miami, this neighborhood values a round of golf, a nap on the beach with a good book, and an eclectic and international vibe.
