Hibiscus Island is among the man-made group of islands in Biscayne Bay located south of Palm Island and west of Star Island. The exclusive residential neighborhood of Hibiscus Island dotted with elegant and highly valued properties is a favorite among A-listers and businessmen.

The Neighborhood

Hibiscus Island is a community within the neighborhood of South Beach bounded by the communities of Palm Island and Star Island.

In 1922, the Army Corps of Engineers started reclamation on the area to create an island. Since then, Hibiscus Island became the winter homes of notable personalities, particularly Al Capone who enjoyed the stunning views of the Miami Beach and Downtown Miami skyline.

From 1940s to 1950s, the island hosted the well-known Latin Quarter nightclub where renowned performers, including Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., Dean Martin and Tony Bennett frequented.

Today, the island is home to stately mansions and converted apartment complexes and condominium buildings.

Access to the island is via the MacArthur Causeway, which also serves as the parking of private ferries of Fisher Island residents.

The roads of Hibiscus are open to public but its entryways have guards who patrol the area 24/7, keeping the neighborhood private and secured.

Homes for sale in Hibiscus Island are mostly massive mansions with well-maintained lawns and lush greenery on spacious lots. Many of the homes with large acreage also have their own luxurious pools, boat docks and private areas.

Things To Do

Hibiscus Island is quiet and private, with most residents preferring to cruise on their boats or ride their jet skis while enjoying the beautiful views of the Biscayne Bay. The ovular shape of the island gives many of the properties waterfront views of the ocean.

The neighborhood shares its Hibiscus Island Park with Palm Island residents. The community center has racquetball and basketball courts, lighted tennis courts and a playground.

Many of the restaurants are within 10 minutes from the neighborhood. Prime 112 at Ocean Drive is a fine dining restaurant that serves premium steaks. At Washington Avenue is Joe’s Stone Crab, which specializes in seafood fares. For a more adventurous dining experience, Nikki Beach Club at South Beach is a go-to bar and restaurant. If craving for international cuisine, Fogo de Chai Miami offers steaks with a Brazilian flare.
