Welcome to Sunset Islands
Premier lifestyle just off the western shores of Miami Beach
Accessible by only one road on either side, the Sunset Islands are comprised of the most private, exclusive, and luxurious properties in all of Miami. Beautiful modern, classic, and Mediterranean homes are surrounded by exceptional views and pristine landscape, making these islands one of the most desired addresses.
Made up of four artificial islands, this community can only be accessed by West 29th Street and 20th Street on Sunset Drive by car. However, almost every home on the islands has access to a personal boating dock, a great convenience for residents—many of whom own their own yachts.
This community’s exclusivity is made even more apparent by its restricted access. Each of the four islands acts as its own gated community, allowing only residents and approved guests to enter. This level of tranquility and security is just one more reason why the world’s elite have chosen this location for their luxurious lifestyle.
