Dining, Shopping, and Entertainment
Your Bal Harbor culinary experience starts at the elegant Makoto
. Indulge in exceptional Japanese cuisine while you sit on their outdoor patio, where you can admire the ocean. Don’t forget to try the incredible Carpaccio
, an Italian restaurant that’s often busier than not. It’s a local favorite in the Bal Harbor area, with delicious food and an atmosphere that gives you a real Italian feel. And for some Greco-inspired cuisine, Alantikos
has a seafood-forward menu and large plates for the entire table to share, with white and blue decor that will transport you to the Greek islands.
Living on the water means being ocean-ready at all times, and the swimwear shop Vilebrequin
can help you out. Shop for quality-made bathing suits that will last in both the sun and the water. Bal Harbor Shops
is a chic shopping mall that features designer brands and trendy eateries. And if that weren’t enough incentive to visit, they also have a beautiful indoor garden that’s thoughtfully landscaped and includes several ponds to add some serenity as you shop.
Things to Do
Bal Harbor Beach is a fantastic spot to spend the day and relax, run or bike on the boardwalk if you’re looking for some exercise, or to dip your toes in the water and cool off. Primarily used by the residents of Bal Harbor, it will become your own private oasis where you’ll be able to get away from touristy beach spots like Miami Beach. For an added bonus, the Bal Harbor Park Recreation
facility is explicitly for the use of Bal Harbor residents.
Haulover Beach Park is another spot that’s visited regularly by Bal Harbor locals. It has beautiful sandy beaches, sports courts for tennis players, and a dog park for your furry friends to run on the sand and play in the water. And every Tuesday night, it’s food truck night at the beach! Buy yourself a snack or a meal and take it to the beach as you watch the sunset. There’s also the Haulover Marine Center, a private marina where you can dock your boat after a trip to Beercan Island or the Haulover Sandbar.
