Venetian Islands is a cluster of artificial islands along the banks of Biscayne Bay.
It includes the six islands: San Marco Island (Miami), Biscayne Island (Miami), Rivo Alto (Miami Beach), San Marino Island (Miami Beach), Belle Isle (Miami Beach), Di Lido Island (Miami Beach) and Flagler Monument Island, an uninhabited memorial island dedicated to Henry Flagler.
The islands are accessible via the private toll road, Venetian Causeway, which provides residents an access to the Biscayne Corridor, Downtown Miami and other major roads. Venetian Causeway is a popular destination for those who love to bike, jog, stroll, and walk their dogs.
The original proposal of the Venetian Islands is much larger than what it is today. However, the 1926 Miami Hurricane coupled with the decline of the Florida real estate boom during the 1920s halted all further developments.
Downtown Miami and its many great establishments are just 10 minutes away while the Miami International Airport is under 20 minutes.
The neighborhoods of Brickell, Biscayne Corridor, Downtown Miami, Design District and Wynwood and its wide array of upscale shopping, fine dining, art galleries, cultural activities, stadium events are all within minutes from the islands.
Residents of Rivo Alto can easily walk towards the neighborhood of South Harbour and enjoy the many upscale shops and dine in some of the most celebrated restaurants in the area including Sardinia, Barceloneta and Pub Belly.
Venetian Islands’ atmosphere may be laid back but residents are not far from having fun since it is also close to the upbeat scene of the South Beach neighborhood.
