Welcome to Surfside

Sunny seaside hideaway with harmonious aura

Tucked south of Bal Harbour, Surfside is an intimate enclave in Miami-Dade county with nearly 6,000 residents. Whether you’re searching for a tranquil holiday home next to the Atlantic waves or craving permanence in this tropical oasis, Surfside’s laid-back serenity is ideal for anyone seeking a slower pace of life within reach of Miami’s robust amenities. Surfside’s swatch of uninterrupted beachfront creates mesmerizing Atlantic sunrises to be enjoyed from the balconies of waterfront properties, and the area’s charming commercial district blends Art Deco architecture with small-town hospitality. 


This predominantly pedestrian-friendly neighborhood is ideal for afternoon strolls, window shopping, and splashing at the shore. Of course, this area is renowned for its breathtaking beaches, and you’ll enjoy hours of sun and sand when you live this close to the water. Despite its diminutive size, Surfside offers a plethora of ways to fill your days. The town’s three-block commercial district along Harding Avenue houses a myriad of boutique retailers, salon and spa services, and big-name coffee shops. If your hair needs a lift, Femme Coiffure Hair Spa is a local favorite salon with a vibrant interior and experienced cosmetologists. Gray & Sons Jewelers is a longstanding Surfside showroom with a stunning selection of luxurious statement pieces. 


Here, you’ll never go hungry. Surfside is home to a multitude of charming kosher eateries that cater to its sizable Orthodox Jewish community. Combining Peruvian flavors and Japanese techniques, 26 Sushi & Tapas has cultivated a unique culinary experience in a sleek, polished dining room. These small plates pack a huge punch of bold flavors. Josh’s Deli offers a fun, new-age take on a traditional Jewish deli, and the menu is brimming with inventive sandwiches and quirky reimaginings of familiar kosher meals. True to the root of its name, The Carrot is a kosher cafe with a diverse selection of entrees, smoothies, and juices that emphasize whole ingredients and fresh produce. Many of The Carrot’s meals are vegan, and its menu supports healthy, nourishing eating. To satisfy your sweet tooth, head over to Serendipity Yogurt Cafe. This local establishment specializes in organic, small-batch creations and bright, brilliant flavors you might not expect from frozen yogurt, including scoops that taste like Arnold Palmer, blueberry crumble, and breakfast cereal. 


Surfside hosts a wide array of notable academic opportunities for students in both public and private schools. Nearby tuition-free accredited public school Mater Beach Academy offers students a challenging yet engaging curriculum.
