Bal Harbour

Bal Harbour is a small, affluent village located between Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean in northern Miami-Dade County. With the ocean on two sides, Miami's barrier island beaches to the south, and just a step across the bridge to Florida's Haulover Park, when you're in Bal Harbour you're never far from sand and surf. Heading down Collins Avenue brings you through family-friendly Surfside, with all of the sophistication of South Beach just beyond.

If it's warm weather you seek, you'll find plenty of it in Bal Harbour. Winters dip to only about 60 degrees Fahrenheit, and summers top out at about 90. In warmer months, families a mixture of tourists and residents enjoy kids' camping (hosted by the Miami Children's Museum only a few miles away in the bustling international metropolis) and outdoor exercise classes on the beach. You're on the ocean's doorstep in the village of Bal Harbour. Haulover Park is surrounded by what are arguably South Florida's best waters the relative calm of the Intracoastal Waterway on the west, and the open Atlantic to the east. Residents and visitors also enjoy tennis, golf, and boating. January and February bring kite-making to the park,and a festival of colorful wind-toys caps the "colder" season.

Adding even more appeal to this beachside luxury lifestyle are shopping in oceanside boutiques and al fresco dining. Bal Harbour is home to Bal Harbour Shops, one of world's most lucrative shopping centers. If fashion is your thing, you're in luck here. From European to island to urban, all styles are represented at stores like Neiman Marcus and designer boutiques like Agent Provocateur, Bottega Veneta, Celine and Chanel (and that's just the beginning of the alphabet).
