Bal Harbour

Welcome to Bal Harbour

An affluent island community with upscale shopping and dining.
 
Bal Harbour is an affluent community on the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Miami. It is a world-class resort destination with some of the best beaches, shopping, and dining in all of South Florida and is home to many high-profile celebrities and business leaders. The island community is approximately 40 minutes from downtown Miami and only 25 minutes north of Miami Beach.
 
As a Bal Harbour resident and hotel guest, a top priority is to activate your Unscripted Art Access Card. The pass, which is free, confers admission to over a dozen cultural institutions throughout Miami. Permanent residents also can join Bal Harbour Yacht Club, which features a private marina with 24-hour gated security. They have slips available for vessels up to 160 feet with electricity.
 
In part because of these amenities, Bal Harbour has become one of the most popular spots on the island for luxury living. The neighborhood is lined with multimillion-dollar mansions and high rises, high-end shopping, world-class dining, resorts and a host of other luxury amenities.
