Acting as a bridge between Miami and South Beach, the Venetian Islands include some of the most desirable properties in all of South Florida. Continuously ranking within the top communities to live in, these six artificial islands are filled with beautiful waterfront homes, exceptional views and easy access to all the conveniences offered on either side of the causeway.
While none of these islands were officially built, they were the byproduct of collected foundation pilings. In 1913, the original wooden bridge—built by farmer and developer John S. Collins with the financial help of Carl G. Fisher—was first opened, allowing access to the formerly isolated Miami Beach.
Since that time, the islands have continued to maintain their exclusivity, luxury, and elegance—hosting some of the most affluent communities in South Florida.
