Here is one of the aerials I took of Golden Beach while photographing different market areas and listings via helicopter.

Golden Beach Florida sits on 1.8 miles along the northern most portion of Ocean Blvd (State Road A1A) at the Miami-Dade/ Broward County line in South Florida. This exclusive town is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the East, the Intracoastal Waterway to the West, and the coastal cities/communities of Hallandale Beach (Golden Isles) to the North and Sunny Isles Beach to the South. Also, Golden Beach is situated between both Miami (Miami Beach) and Ft. Lauderdale and minutes to The Shoppes of Bal Harbour.

The History of Golden Beach

Golden Beach Florida was incorporated in 1929 and has become one of the most desirable places to live in South Florida. One of the most recent purchases was Ricky Martin, who purchased 641 Ocean Blvd for $17,500,000… This small quiet community has maintained its family lifestyle in a mile-long sanctuary of 370 single-family homes that are mostly located on the Intracoastal and its waterways or directly on the Atlantic Ocean. The Town Charter protects Golden Beach from commercial activity of any kind and forbids the construction of high rise condominiums that saturate so many beach front communities in South Florida. A beautiful mile and one-eighth of private beach with a historic beach Pavilion, 3 parks, and a committed sense of community have attracted talented, discerning residents from all over the world to this idyllic town located only 18 miles from Miami International Airport and 15 miles from Ft. Lauderdale International and Port Everglades.

Golden Beach provides security through its own Police Department. The Building and Zoning Department, Finance and Administrative Department, and the Public Works Department provide other services.

Golden Beach Florida is a beautiful and unique place to live!
