The Best Located Condo in Key Biscayne

The recently developed Oceana Key Biscayne wins the best-located condo in Key Biscayne tag for a couple of reasons. First, it sits directly on the beach. Second, it’s a short walk/golf cart ride from the village’s parks and top dining spots along Crandon Boulevard. And third, close to the northern end of the island, residents find it easier to exit the island and get to work/entertainment in Brickell, Coconut Grove, or Downtown.
