Cut south, this elegant and well maintained 6-block stretch
of beach is maintained by the exclusive residential Village
of Bal Harbour. There is a great strolling/jogging path
through the native greenery beside the beach that starts
at Haulover Cut and goes all the way down through the neighbouring
town of Surfside.
the west side of A1A (Collins Ave.) are the elegant Bal
Harbour Shops. Considered on a par with Fifth Ave. New
York, Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills and Worth Ave., Palm Beach.
This prestigious mall is anchored by Neiman Marcus and Saks
Fifth Avenue, with boutique shops the likes of Louis Vuitton,
Brooks Bros., Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi and all the best
designers. A real social gathering point.
Here is a map of the area.
