For decades, having a Bal Harbour address has been equated with exclusivity and luxury, and Bal Harbour condos have always been known to be some of the finest in all of Miami and the beaches. But what’s so special about this beachfront neighborhood that makes it so coveted? We’re about to find out with our list of the top five most luxurious condos in Bal Harbour—from least to most expensive—and the outstanding amenities that set them a class apart.

We’ll also find out more about the neighborhood and the outstanding pre-construction projects that will solidify this area as one of the most sought-after in all of South Florida.

Why Choose Bal Harbour?

Since the 1950s, Bal Harbour has been one of Miami's most coveted oceanside addresses, with the name synonymous with celebrities, opulence, and the finest shopping in the world. Just like the Shops at Bal Harbour are known for showcasing only high-end brands, this quaint oceanfront neighborhood is known for housing only the world’s finest residences. Privacy and exclusivity are a given with a Bal Harbour address.

And even though this ultra-luxury neighborhood has its own tranquil beachfront, it also benefits from being just a 20-minute drive away from South Beach’s spoils and the mainland’s culture and shopping destinations. It’s also a very safe neighborhood with a great downtown feel, and many of Miami’s finest restaurants and shops are all within walking distance.
