North Beach is best known for its family-friendly vibe and is positioned firmly between the sensationalism of South Beach and high-end shopping at Bal Harbour. Historically, this has been the sleepy cousin to South Beach, but has been going through a renaissance of late with the addition of new constructions and planning of the city center. Away from the chaos, this laidback part of town boasts of crowd-free beaches, a great golf course, musical events at the North Beach Bandshell and scenic walks along the boardwalk.

How Safe is North Beach?
This underrated neighborhood gets fewer visitors and tourists compared to its hip cousin down south.

Less crowds and a small-town-like community make North Beach safe enough for runners, bikers and dog walkers to frequent its scenic boardwalk.

Shopping in North Beach
Shopping is rather underwhelming in North Beach, with mostly convenience stores and utility shops spread across its landscape. Even though there aren’t many big name malls out here, you will find a Publix Supermarket and two Walgreens along Collins Avenue plus another Walgreens on Normandy Isle. There is also a Starbucks and IHOP located next to the Publix. For better shopping options, one has to head north to the Bal Harbour Shops, or south to Lincoln Road.
The Best Located Condo in North Beach
Sitting directly on the beach and with a Publix Supermarket bang across the street, we’re picking the Carillon towers as the best located condos in North Beach. There’s also a Walgreens, the North Beach Bandshell plus a bunch of restaurants within walking distance. A short drive further takes you to two great golf courses close by (Normandy Shores and La Gorce) and the Bal Harbour Shops, which is a world-class shopping destination for high-end brands.
