Singer Island

Singer Island is home of one of the finest beaches in the world. Named after Paris Singer, the early developer of Palm Beach and son of the sewing machine magnate Isaac Singer, the island is located in the southeast region of Palm Beach county, just northeast of West Palm Beach. After being devastated by hurricanes in 1928 and the Great Depression in 1929, in the 1950’s Palm Beach County enjoyed tremendous growth and Singer Island evolved into a resort area of hotels and condominiums for winter residents.

A truly tropical paradise, Singer Island is accessed by a bridge from the mainland. Singer Island has beautiful parks, marinas, hiking and bike paths. The aquamarine waters brought on by the Gulf Stream make Singer Island a water lovers paradise. Nearby are internationally acclaimed golf courses, a Tennis Center and Roger Dean Stadium. Singer Island is also close to shopping and entertainment at historic Clematis Street, CityPlace, Worth Avenue and the Palm Beach Gardens Mall. The island’s weekly art festivals and the Kravis Center’s first-class performances all add to the charm of living in the Palm Beaches most sought after enclave.

 

South Beach

South Beach has been called the American Riviera and an Art Deco Playground. Yet there’s more than fine white sand to South Beach’s fantasyland of exuberant architecture. South Beach offers an eclectic mix of world-class boutiques, galleries and stores, and rates as a culinary hot spot from gourmet to casual cuisine. But it is at night that South Beach really comes alive. According to several popular magazines, South Beach has replaced both Los Angeles and New York City as the premier and most popular nightlife spot in the U.S. It is host to over 150 clubs and other destinations.

South Beach (or “the Beach” as known to its locals) is a section of Miami Beach that encompasses the lower 23 blocks of the island from the point south of 1st Street to 23rd Street. This area was the first section of Miami Beach to be developed starting in the 1910s, thanks to development efforts of Carl G. Fisher, the Lummus Brothers, John Collins, and others. The area has gone through numerous changes over the years, some man-made and some due to the forces of nature. New developments include luxury penthouses, condos and villas with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Miami skyline.
 

 

Sunny Isles Beach

The scene is changing in the Sunny Isles Beach area. The atmosphere in Sunny Isles is still casual but the funky 50's motels and small beachfront hotels are giving way to luxury apartment towers and hotels. Sunny Isles Beach is a booming resort area and developers such as Donald Trump have invested heavily in construction of high-rise hotels and condominiums, with luxury penthouses and breath-taking ocean views. But little has changed on the Newport Fishing Pier, where you can drop a line and fish from shore. You can also enjoy its beautiful white sand beaches and open ocean surf.

Sunny Isles Beach, the City of Sun and Sea, is located on a barrier island in the northeast corner of Miami-Dade County, bounded by the Atlantic Ocean on the east and the Intracoastal Waterway on the west. The city was incorporated in 1997 and as of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 15,315.
