The small quiet, relaxed neighbourhood combines old and new, small and large scale homes and luxury condominiums and hotels, offering great quality of life to its residents. To preserve the character of the community, the great oceanfront condo buildings and hotels along Collins Avenue are not permitted to exceed 12 stories, yet are some of the most prestigious in the county. Some of these include Azure, Manatee, Rimini Beach, Surfside Towers and the Waverly Surfside, all with excellent views of the Ocean and the city.
Real estate in Surfside offers a cozy atmosphere yet close to the sizzling nightlife of Miami and South Beach. No wonder the demand of the properties is very high as people can find luxury amenities and conveniences while enjoying the tropical weather. There are great investment opportunities for every budget, but supply is limited.
The city also has public tennis courts, public pools and beautiful beaches.
Harding Avenue is the area where the good restaurants and boutiques are located, and the renowned Bal Harbour Shops are just steps away. The oceanfront Community Center, built in 1962, offers library, swimming pools, public beach access, bars and meeting rooms 7 days a week.
