When city planners were trying to name this tiny 0.6-square-mile oceanfront community in Miami-Dade County, someone suggested "Bay Harbour." Many officials objected to the name — the village is on the beach, not on the bay. Ultimately, city planners chose "Bal Harbour," taking the "B" from "bay" and the "AL" from "Atlantic," to identify the village, which runs from Biscayne Bay to the Atlantic Ocean.
Bal Harbour, which has a population of about 3,305 residence, enjoys all the benefits of a location close to Miami Beach but the atmosphere of a small exclusive beach town. Mayor Jean Rosenfield said she prides her village's commitment to careful and responsible planning that doesn't deter from the community's original charm.
Live Life to the Fullest
Though small, Bal Harbour has a great reputation. This affluent community is well known for its premier shopping and dining destinations. New developments, such as St. Regis, One Bal Harbour Resort & Spa and the Oceana of Bal Harbour, add to Bal Harbour's already impressive lifestyle, leaving residents and visitors excited about the possibilities.
At The Bal Harbour Shops, luxury brands from Addict, Fendi, Prada to Zodiac fill the shopping mecca with the latest fashions. This shopping center has been a staple of luxury shopping in South Florida since its opening in 1965.
The upscale restaurants in Bal Harbour Shops offer endless options for brunch, dinner, and cocktails from places such as The Grill at Bal Harbour, Makoto and Carpaccio. Even more fine dining possibilities await in Bal Harbour's luxury hotel and condominium developments.
There is never a dull moment in Bal Harbour from the Atlantic Ocean activities or that would like a cocktail or wine at one of the many restaurants in Bal Harbour Shops or visit the ever going nightlife just south in Miami Beach.
A City Worth Experiencing
Nothing compares with Bal Harbour. Through the years, it has developed into a household name for luxury living and shopping, not only in the South Florida but around the world as well. The city of Bal Harbour seems poised to continue to reinvent itself and will always be known as an exclusive and affluent place to live, play, and enjoy life's riches.
