The Best Neighborhoods For Boat Lovers

May 8, 2019

For many, “life on the water” is one of the biggest attractions to buy a house in South Florida. Those looking to live in Miami often look for luxury homes in Miami with a dock or condominium in Miami that offers a landslide.

In this section, we offer the best beachfront communities for boaters and boat owners.

Miami Beach

You can’t go wrong with an island when you love sailing. The Venetian Islands are located in Biscayne Bay, between Miami and Miami Beach. There are 6 Venetian islands in total, which are predominantly a single-family housing market, although some islands also offer condominiums. Belle Isle, for example, which is the last island before arriving in Miami Beach, offers several condominiums with docks.

The Venetian islands, as they also call it, offer many beachfront houses with a pier and are desirable because there are no fixed bridges that grant open access to the ocean.

Coconut Grove

Coconut Grove is a neighborhood in Miami that offers many beachfront homes with a boat dock and a good number of marinas.

Although some of the houses in these gated communities are in the open bay, most are in a canal that provides a bridge fee and very fast access to the open bay.

The Grove also offers several marinas along South Bayshore Drive.

Most of the waterfront homes with a dock are located along South Bayshore Lane or in one of the gated and oceanfront communities, such as Estates Entrance, Hughes Cove or The Moorings.

Coral gables

Coral Gables offers many houses with a pier. Beachfront homes in Coral Gables are located on the channels of Coral Gables or in the open bay. Some of the houses facing the canal are farther from the open bay (those west of the US 1) and require longer navigation to reach the open ocean. Unlike Coconut Grove’s waterfront homes, in Coral Gables one can find (fixed) bridges. For condo lovers, the Deering Bay community and the Gables Club Condo Tower 1 and Tower 2 can offer the best condos with a marina.
