Welcome to Star, Palm and Hibiscus Islands

Exclusive, gated islands where homes are like palaces and the ocean is right in your backyard
An exclusive triplet of islands connected by bridges to the MacArthur Causeway, the islands of Palm, Hibiscus, and Star all have spectacular views of the downtown and Miami Beach skylines, which come to life in the blush and violet glow of South Florida’s famous sunsets. Due to their ideal location on the water, these island communities get direct ocean access and deepwater dockage for yachts. 
Pulled up and created from the ocean by the Army Corps of Engineers in 1922, the Palm, Hibiscus, and Star Islands have long been home to celebrities and members of the upper echelon. Its rich history includes being the winter home of Al Capone—whose residence is a historic site on Palm Island today—and the location of the famed luxury nightclub, Latin Quarter, which hosted musicians like Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Junior. Many A-list celebrities have or have had homes here, and this posh community with lavish houses is one of the premier neighborhoods in the area.
Just as in the Venetian Islands, the residential real estate of the Palm, Hibiscus, and Star Islands maintains record-breaking sales—and justifiably so. Mostly waterfront single-family homes, the islands also have dry lot homes and every house trends toward palatial opulence. These multi-million dollar properties can run upwards of 30 million dollars and come with jaw-dropping amenities and property bonuses that can include private beaches, backyard tennis courts, at-home docking, home theaters, resort-style pools, and rooftop lounges.
