Meet the best areas to live and invest in Miami Florida that Reemag Magazine has compiled of this paradisiacal city.

Sunny Isles Beach

The splendid city of Sunny Isles Beach, located in the northwest of Miami-Dade County between the exclusive Golden Beach and Haulover Beach, is also known as the city of sun and sea thanks to the natural beauty of being bordered by the Atlantic Ocean. It is currently undergoing a restructuring in its image, thanks to the great construction activity that is taking place, which is strengthening as one of the luxury destinations, also contrasts the classic small hotels of the 50s with the new and luxurious residential developments of the hand of world-renowned architects and designers. Sunny Isles Beach is located near the equally important cities of Fort Lauderdale, Bal Harbour, Aventura and Miami Beach.

No wonder it was the location chosen by some of the world-renowned brands to build their high-end buildings in partnership with local developers. This is the case of Porsche Design Tower, Armani Residences and Ritz Carlton Sunny Isles. The exclusivity of the neighborhood raises the average price of real estate. However, it is still possible to find affordable options compared to other luxury areas in Miami, such as Fisher Island and Miami Beach.

Sunny Isles is a predominantly residential and peaceful community, ranked as one of the safest cities in Florida. Despite the many new condominiums it received in recent years, it was able to preserve its elegance and reserved atmosphere. Its beaches are among the most beautiful in Florida, a characteristic that gave the island the title of "Florida Riviera". Sunny Isles also offers one of the best public schools in Miami. Bordering Aventura and Bal Harbour, it offers the convenience of being close to two of Miami's best shopping centers: Aventura Mall and Bal Harbour Shops.

Bal Harbour

South of Sunny Isles, following Collins Avenue, is the Bal Harbour neighborhood. Home to luxury resorts and white sandy beaches, Bal Harbour is a quiet and luxurious enclave.

Bal Harbour Miami is the ideal place for those seeking exclusivity and quality of life. Like other exclusive neighborhoods in Miami, Bal Harbour also attracts the attention of celebrities and millionaires from all over the world who are looking for homes and apartments to buy in Miami. The great advantage of this community is that, in addition to being reserved and exclusive, the prices of the units in its luxury condominiums are more attractive than other more contested areas, such as Miami Beach and Fisher Island.

Bal Harbour and Bay Harbour Island together offer a combination of real estate options. Despite the exclusivity of the region, it is possible to find properties in Bal Harbour starting at $300,000. Of course, the condos closer to the beach are more expensive, but even cheaper than other luxury locations in Miami. On Bay Harbor Island, in addition to buildings, you can also find several options in single-family homes.

While maintaining the exclusive and elegant features found in Sunny Isles, such as a residential setting and beautiful beaches, Bal Harbour brings a difference: it is at the north end of Miami Beach. A few minutes' drive and you cross the barrier between tranquil ambiance and excitement. Bal Harbour is also known for housing one of the most luxurious shopping centers in the world, Bal Harbour Shops. With so many designer stores and people from all over the world shopping there, the mall was once considered the most productive mall in the world in terms of revenue per square foot.

Adjacent to Bal Harbour is Bay Harbour Island. Together, the two communities offer a mix of real estate options, from single-family homes to luxury condominiums.
