The exclusive and often waterfront homes attract the world’s wealthiest families and real estate investors, often looking for a solid place to raise their family. For families the most attractive aspects are the island’s safety (with 24/7 police control), the presence of one of the best public schools in the USA, and the high-end quality of life and social scene. Other advantages are the great beaches, national parks and golf courses as well as the proximity to the Financial District in Brickell, Coconut Grove and even Miami Beach.
The Island is also a favorite with boaters because of the proximity to the open water. Unlike other areas there are no fixed bridges in Key Biscayne and almost all waterfront mansions offer an immediate or fast access to the open waters.
