The drive across Rickenbacker Causeway, to or from Key Biscayne homes, offers unparalleled views of the Miami skyline. The Village of Key Biscayne sits just a few minutes from the hustle and bustle of Downtown, but could be a world away. World famous Crandon Park, home to the Sony Open Tennis Tournament, lies on both sides of road between the Village of Key Biscayne and Downtown, creating a tree-lined tunnel to a community where there are as many golf carts on the streets as cars, and things move at a more genteel pace. Crandon Park itself has an 18-hole golf course, picnic areas, and beautiful beaches, but some of the most spectacular scenery is at the Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park with its historic lighthouse.
The Village of Key Biscayne is intimate, but full of amenities including spas, fine dining, retail, the Key Biscayne Yacht Club, and excellent schools. Residential options on Key Biscayne Real Estate include condos, single family homes and villas, many with waterfront options and beautiful views of Biscayne Bay. The legendary Miami Seaquarium, home of Flipper, is five minutes away on Virginia Key, just off the causeway, as is the MAST Academy, a magnet school for the brightest students in the county, and the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. Hobie Beach, also on Virginia Key, is always bright with paddleboards, kayaks, and sails of all varieties.
