Welcome to the Sunset Islands

Luxe gated community on Biscayne Bay where the excitement of Miami is within easy reach
Directly across from the Miami Beach Golf Club’s dazzling greenways, the Sunset Islands are a set of four luxury-style islands that house single-family homes. Resting on a portion of the Biscayne Bay, known as Sunset Lake, these four islands are well-known for their superb views of the incandescent Miami skyline. These private and gated communities lend an elevated atmosphere of exclusivity and esteem to the entire area. However, the Sunset Islands also enjoy the perks of being within minutes of some of Miami and Miami Beach’s hottest nightlife, shopping, and dining. 
Sunset Islands can be broken into two groups. On the upper side of North Bay Road, the islands of Sunset I and Sunset II consist mostly of waterfront estates and come with a private zoned boat dock. To the south, Sunset III and Sunset IV have larger lots, with envy-inducing designer homes. 
No matter the island, this community’s residences are highly-coveted, and prices can range from one million, upwards of 20 million. The price points are well worth it—from palatial new-build estates with top-of-the-line amenities, mid-century beauties with a contemporary vibe, and luxury condos tucked into renovated art deco buildings, the housing in Sunset Islands is some of the best in the entire south of Florida.

What to Love

  • Short drive to the beach, South Beach is just three miles away
  • Close to plenty of great restaurants and shops
  • Private, exclusive community with inspiring architecture

People & Lifestyle

Since it’s located right next to Sunset Harbor and minutes from the exhilarating city of Miami, the neighborhood of Sunset Islands is well-suited to those who enjoy an active lifestyle, high-end shopping, culinary excellence, and world-class luxury. A healthy mix of families, young professionals, retirees, and international residents, those in Sunset Islands have a shared commonality of loving beauty and comfort.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Though the neighborhood of Sunset Islands itself is entirely residential, this gorgeous affluent community is less than eight minutes from one of Miami’s premier shopping and commercial districts: Sunset Harbor. Nestled between Alton Road and Biscayne Bay, Sunset Harbor has everything from fashion-forward boutiques, multicultural, award-winning dining, state-of-the-art fitness and wellness centers, and an upbeat personality that meshes perfectly with the atmosphere of Sunset Islands. 
Grab your coffee-to-go at Panther Coffee—whose small-batch roasts are rich and flavorful—so that you can peruse the shops along Sunset Harbor Drive, adjacent to the waters of the bay. The best in boutique beauty is available at Gee, whose shelves are stocked with exclusive brands, science-based skin treatments, makeup, and more. Need an outfit for an upcoming occasion? Sunset Harbor is a fashion hotspot, and shops like Frankie are ready to clothe you in the trendiest apparel for any event. 
Since Miami is a gateway city for global business, it’s not hard to see how districts like Sunset Harbor are full of mixed-culture vitality and a bevy of globally-inspired cuisine. Visitors can dine at NaiYaRa Thai & Sushi Miami and taste their creative dishes that blend traditional Thai fares and Japanese classics to take “flavorful” to another level. Those who want to enjoy only the healthiest food will be impressed with the menu at Icebox Cafe, a New American restaurant with mindful meals that is home to Oprah’s favorite chocolate cake. Other popular options include Italian restaurants like Lucali and Sardinia Enoteca Ristorante, Mexican cuisine from Tequiztlan, and traditional Japanese fare from Sushi Garage.

Things to Do

Apart from the Miami Beach Golf Club right across the water, the Sunset Islands also maintain the many perks of living in Miami itself, including pristine beaches, parks, and world-famous yachting. Additionally, Sunset Islands residents can often be found biking or jogging over to Sunset Harbor to take advantage of the area’s fitness facilities. Whether you unwind with a class over at Green Monkey Yoga or dive into the integrated health lifestyle of Anatomy, the tools for achieving wellness are within proximity to the Sunset Islands. 
With its direct access to the bay, Sunset Harbor is also a great place to rent paddleboards, and the nearby South Beach has plenty of spots to rent kayaks and slip out onto the waters. Enjoy the ever-sunny Miami weather and warm waves throughout the year, especially since several beaches are within easy distance.


The Sunset Islands are home to several excellent schools. Top educational opportunities include:
  • North Beach Elementary School, PK-5, one of the top public schools in the Miami-Dade County
