Fisher Island Florida is a private, self contained community often associated with Miami Beach since it's located just south of the barrier island. Miami Beach developer Carl G. Fisher is responsible for this community that is only accessible by its own ferry or a helicopter. Historically, it was winter home of the Vanderbilts and today it maintains a strong allure among celebrities or those seeking what is arguably the ultimate in privacy since there is no traditional means of getting on and off the upscale island.
Fisher Island real estate has a collection of condos, villas and other high end property. As for the amenities the island offers it includes six restaurants, a Par 35 championship golf course, a pair of deepwater marinas, its own beach, the Vanderbilt mansion clubhouse and much more. Together with its own school and fire department, the island is largely autonomous. The ferry will drop you off roughly equidistant to both Miami and Miami Beach so finding something to do off the island is also made easy.
