Key Biscayne Real Estate: Opportunities in a family and safe environment.

Key Biscayne is and has been one of the most exclusive and luxurious areas of Miami to live or vacation. The island just 10 minutes from downtown Miami offers properties with spectacular views, efficient services, luxury, comfort, a perfect family life, education and security.

Because it is an island, in Key Biscayne everything is close and concentrated, such as shopping and recreation sites such as clubs, sports fields, parks and beaches, as well as a school for children. And it could not be otherwise, because the total surface of the island is just 1.35 square miles, between the mainland and aquatic spaces.

Most people think Key Biscayne is perhaps one of the quietest places you can find in all of South Florida. It is an island of green vegetation, elegant buildings and houses, vast avenues with zero tourist bustle, and with the most incredible panoramic views and sunsets that you really fall in love with.

Key Biscayne currently has more than 14,000 residents, most of whom are white, Latino, Spanish, and immigrants of other nationalities who settled down on this part of Florida. In this calm and friendly international community, retired people, young professionals and enterprising executives converge with their families. The community moves entirely on golf carts, making this experience even more enjoyable.

At a tourist and recreational level, the island is surrounded by charming places to visit such as the Miami Seaquarium, Crandon Park (where the famous Miami Tennis tournament was played, now moved to the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens), and the spectacular Bill Baggs State Park, where you can find the famous and historic lighthouse on the island.
