Think Surfside, and most imagine a community living by the sea. But, there’s a luxurious side to Surfside that’s offered by a new wave of top-tier residences built in the lovely, beachside neighborhood.

Why Choose Surfside?



This family-oriented beach town comes perfectly positioned between the glamorous Bal Harbour and world-famous Miami Beach. A pocket-sized neighborhood, Surfside is somewhat of an extension of Bal Harbour in some ways, and is favored by those looking for community events, friendly neighbors, mom and pop shops and safe streets. 

Residents absolutely love the uncrowded beaches here that come lined with scenic boardwalks and citywide exhibits dedicated to marine life (read Surfside’s famous turtles). Also, the town has its very own community center that features a lap pool, plunge pool, children’s pool, jacuzzi and two multipurpose rooms made available to host community events.
