Sunny Isles Beach
The City of Sun and Sea is a tropical barrier island, with 2 ½ miles of fine sand beach frontage on the Atlantic Ocean, where water sports such as boating, swimming and fishing vie for attention with top-notch tennis, shopping, dining, and cultural entertainment pursuits. The City’s public and charter schools offer advanced and evolving curricula and student sports programs, and a high standard of living is further enhanced by superb municipal services. The setting is complemented by green space, most notably the soon-to-open Gateway Park, just opposite Parque Towers, where outdoor relaxation possibilities will be offset with the cultural venues, retail access and parking conveniences one associates with America’s great urban parks from coast to coast.
