Sunny Isles Beach is a tropical island located between the Intracoastal Waterways and Atlantic Ocean. The warm ocean water and white sand beaches complemented by its cultural diversity makes Sunny Isles Beach among the most desirable communities to live in South Florida.

The Neighborhood

The coastal community of Sunny Isles beach is at the northeast of the Miami-Dade County, bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the east and Intracoastal Waterway on the west. It has the neighborhood of Golden Beach on its north and the Haulover Park on its south.

In 1920, a private investor named Harvey Baker Graves purchased a tract of land to develop as a tourist resort. The completion of the Haulover Bridge opened the access to the land from Miami Beach and has since attracted developers to dig canals, widen streams, and create islands to build waterfront properties on the shores of Biscayne Bay.

By 1936, Sunny Isles Pier was a popular tourist destination and property development started to flourish by 1950s when single family homes sprouted along the area of the Golden Shores. From 1950s to 1960s, motels mushroomed along the avenue of Collins.

The Sunny Isles Pier became a historic site in 1982. It underwent careful restoration and re-opened as Newport Fishing Pier in 2013. By 1997, Sunny Isles Beach underwent incorporation and began the era of major property boom. Luxurious, high-rise condominiums and hotels sprang on Collins Avenue replacing many of the two-story motels.

Dubbed as the Florida’s Riviera, Sunny Isles neighborhood is a coastal community bursting with cultural diversity. The neighborhood of Sunny Isles is easily accessible from both the Miami and Fort Lauderdale Airports, making it a favorite destination of international tourists.

Sunny Isles’ Community Services Department offers free shuttle services throughout the town. The community shuttle has three different routes and is available seven days a week.

Its central location allows its residents to gain convenient access to the entertainment centers of the Aventura and Bal Harbour neighborhoods.

The community of Sunny Isles Beach has its own newspaper, The Sunny Isles Beach Sun, which has a bi-monthly publication.
