Palm Island is a man-made island located in Biscayne Bay in the city of Miami Beach. Palm Island lies just south of Hibiscus Island. It is a peaceful residential bayfront island, the site of an exclusive neighborhood and multi-million dollar luxury homes. Both Palm Island and the neighboring island of Hibiscus Island are only accessible via the MacArthur Causeway or by boat via the Biscayne Bay.
This gated island subdivision of Miami Beach - Palm Island, features luxury waterfront homes and luxurious bayfront estate homes with many characterized by Mediterranean-style architecture with elegant entryways leading into large and beautiful homes with many featuring large, tropical Florida rooms.
Other designer touches of many Palm Island homes often include spa bathrooms, marble floors, vaulted ceilings, and outdoor pools with lushly landscaped pool decks. Waterfront residents of Palm Island can dock their boats at their own private docks. The homes on the beautiful Miami Beach island community of Palm Island are some of the most sought after waterfront and bayfront luxury homes in Miami Beach.

A History of Palm Island & Hibiscus Island
Today's Palm Island and Hibiscus Island still bear historical evidence of a grand and illustrious history, visible immediately beyond the guard gates at the entrance to Palm Island. As one proceeds onto the island, the first thing you pass is a children playground full of swing sets, slides and see-saws. But half a century ago this location was an altogether different sort of playground, the island was the site of the Famous Latin Quarter Nightclub.
Owned by Lou Walters, father of The View’s Barbara Walters, the Latin Quarter was a mid-century mecca for big-named entertainers who performed for winter crowds of tourists and celebrities arriving in Miami Beach each December. Entertainers like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis, Jack Benny and Tony Bennett all intermingled with waves of high-kicking chorus girls to perform three shows a night at the Latin Quarter.
Beginning with the financial crash in the early 1930's, Palm Island became the winter home of such notables as Al Capone and many celebrities, who took to Miami Beach's beauty and warm weather. They built various incredible waterfront estates on Palm and Hibiscus Island. Many of these estates were restored to their full glory during the real estate boom of the late 1980's and early 1990's.
