Bal Harbour & Bay Harbour Islands

Bal Harbour is one of the wealthiest communities in the United States, with a median household income over $250,000. Bal Harbour is known internationally for its upscale shops along Collins Avenue, including designer boutiques like Gucci, Prada, and Louis Vuitton. The town is uniquely zoned for luxury hotels and high-rise condominiums, and strict development regulations have maintained Bal Harbour's exclusivity, with minimal commercial presence beyond its shops that predominantly serve very affluent residents and hotel guests.
