Biscayne Islands is the first island you will encounter when you head to Miami Beach when you go there via the NE 15th Street in Downtown Miami. This small island located just west of Miami Beach and east of Downtown Miami, is one of the premier neighborhoods in the city due to the fact that it is in the middle of these two active hubs of the city.
Contrary to popular belief, this island is not actually part of Miami Beach but rather of the City of Miami primarily because it is nearer to the mainland.
This island is just a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the Central Business District, but is also just as near to the pristine beaches and amazing sights, sounds, and experiences that can be found on Miami Beach.
In short, this is one of the best places to live in since you can enjoy the best of both worlds while at the same time, live on an island that is not as crowded or as busy as these two places.
