Hibiscus Island Guide

Location

Located just north of Palm Island, Hibiscus Island is an exclusive neighborhood that is one of the more popular luxury-living destinations in the greater Miami area. Accessible via the MacArthur Causeway, the island itself offers that rare combination of seclusion, great amenities, and excellent accessibility to the rest of Miami that it has become a popular place for the rich and famous to reside.

History

The Army Corps of Engineers created both Palm and Hibiscus Islands as part of their dredging operations by 1922. During the Roaring ‘20s, Hibiscus Island was noted for being a place of illegal gambling and drinking thanks to Prohibition. The combination of Prohibition being lifted along with the Great Depression of the 1930s reduced interest in living on the island, although it did become the winter home to several celebrities and the infamous Al Capone.

After World War II, both Palm and Hibiscus Islands became the area known as the Latin Quarter, the site of several famous nightclubs that catered to celebrities. Big-name entertainment would play in the clubs on the islands, which were owned by Lou Walters, the father of Barbara Walters.

Hibiscus Island Today

The Latin Quarter of the 1950s is now gone, having been replaced by residences that include several mansions, condominiums, and apartments. The island has one of the higher property values in Miami-Date County for several reasons.

Beautiful Homes

You can find numerous luxury homes on the island, including the celebrated house built by Ralph Choeff which includes a wine cellar, movie theater, Koi pond, and terrace on the rooftop. The unobstructed views of the Miami skyline and Biscayne Bay make this home special, but such views are shared by other homes on the island.

Security

One of the top selling points is the efficient security put into place, so that residents can call for assistance 24/7. Plus, the presence of the security detail means that your home is better protected and dissuades would-be intruders from the area.

Attractions

Despite being an island, residents are just a few minutes away from several celebrated attractions in the area which include the following;

  • Britto Center: See modern pop art at its finest
  • Miami Beach Boardwalk: One of the most beautiful views in all of Miami
  • South Beach: Historic area, Art Deco architecture, great restaurants and shops
  • South Pointe Park: Incredible sunsets

These are just a few of the many amenities that you will enjoy just minutes from the island.

Schools

Sharing the same schools as Palm Island, children living on Hibiscus Island can go to school at South Point Elementary, Nautilus Middle, and Miami Beach High School. The schools are some of the more celebrated in the county, providing an excellent educational experience.

As with Palm Island, Hibiscus Island is one of the more desired places to live in Miami-Dade County thanks to its warm, tropical weather the year-round, excellent amenities, secluded location, and access to the rest of Miami in just minutes thanks to the MacArthur Causeway and highway systems. It has become the home of celebrities and is highly desired by those who want the best of all worlds while living in the Miami area.
