More and more tax law refugees from the northeast area are flocking into Miami and many of them are looking to settle on Fisher Island. Fisher Island, ranked by Bloomberg as the richest ZIP code in the United States, is an exclusive 216-acre island located minutes off the coast of Miami, and is only accessible by yacht or private ferry.
The Appeal of Fisher Island
Prized for its serene tropical environment, privacy and security, the exclusive Fisher Island enclave is located just off the tip of Miami Beach and offers its residents an abundance of amenities including a renowned Beach Club, two marinas, golf course, tennis center, boutique hotel, private school, exclusive spa and several world-class dining establishments, and over one-mile of private beach with sand imported from Bimini.
Situated on Government Cut where Biscayne Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean, Fisher Island is just minutes from both Downtown Miami and world famous South Beach. The 216 -Acre resort community is home to more than 700 families from around the world.
Needless to say, security, safety, and welfare of residents is a top priority on Fisher Island. Transportation to and from the Island is regulated and monitored by means of private yacht or auto-ferry with a convenient 7 minute ride, 365 days per year. Courtesy golf cart shuttles to any point on the island are offered to residents, and an off-island parking lot and trolley is provided for employees. The Fisher Island Public Safety Department and The Fisher Island fire station provide services 24 hours a day. There is no recorded / reported crime.
In the past, Fisher Island’s residents were mostly 2nd, 3rd or 4th home owners with 10% of residents living on the island all year round. In recent years however, Fisher Island is seeing a higher percentage of full time residents as high-tax state residents are flocking into the island. This also resulted in a younger demographic, oftentimes families with (younger) children. The island’s very own school, Fisher Island Day School, offers grades Pre K till 8 and is now a “Grade A” school. Currently there are over 100 students enrolled at the school.
