A Tour Through the Beautiful Venetian IslandsOctober 31, 2014
There are many stunning Miami Beach Communities but few compare to the tranquil beauty of the Venetian Islands. Located in the middle of Biscayne Bay, it is undoubtedly one of the most desirable neighborhoods anywhere in the area and must be seen to be believed.
Situated in the bay between mainland Miami and Miami Beach, the Venetian Islands is a series of six islands that are connected through a series of roads.
The islands were built in the early 20th century; the first roads that connecting the islands were made of wood and funded by Miami legends Carl G. Fisher and John S. Collins. The islands and the accompanying road were critical for the development of the area as it made Miami Beach accessible by road for the first time as before it was only accessible by ferry.
The six residential islands in the area include Belle, Rivo Alto, Di Lido, San Marino, San Marco, and Biscayne. In addition, there is the small Monument Island which was created as a memorial for railroad pioneer Henry Flagler; that island is only accessible by boat.
Because the islands are situated in the middle of Biscayne Bay, many of the homes in this area have stunning views of the bay. Depending on where the home is situated, you will also have views of downtown Miami skyline, the city of Miami Beach, the Port of Miami and the many watercraft pas by. In addition, many homes offer direct water access. This location is highly desirable because of its proximity offers a serene, stunning environment while also being just minutes from the heart of SouthBeach and downtown Miami.
