Barely south of Miami's hustle and crowds, you'll find the relaxed suburb of Palmetto Bay. Excellent proximity to Miami, Everglades National Park, and other popular attractions in South Florida adds incentive to visit one of our comfortable vacation rentals in this bayside community.
Situated next to the Biscayne Bay, Palmetto Bay is about 20 miles south of sunny Miami. From here, you can easily don your flashiest swimwear and show it off on the shores of Miami Beach, or simply visit one of the Cuban cafes like Enriqueta's for a famous cafécito (Cuban coffee).
The Everglades National Park is about 30 miles away from our Palmetto vacation homes in the opposite direction. Visit this extraordinary environment to see the alligators, swamps, and moss-draped forests for yourself.
Golfers, rejoice: Palmetto boasts its own beautiful greens! Tee off at Palmetto Golf Course among ponds and palms, and you'll see why it's regarded as one of the Miami area's best courses. Other courses nearby include Briar Bay Golf Course and Deering Bay Country Club for those golfers who just can't get enough.
The Deering Estate, a historic site near the shore, offers tours, hikes, and even canoe excursions. Visitors of all ages can investigate the historic houses on-site and enjoy the environmental preserve on the property. Fossils as old as 50,000 years have been found here!
Picnic down at Coral Reef park in the center of town, where you can spread a blanket on the lawn next to the canal. Later in the evening, dine nearby at Caffe Portofino for classic Italian fare. Along Highway 1, you'll find banks, grocery shopping, and more.
Palmetto Bay has much to offer travelers in search of Florida sunshine - see for yourself when you stay in of our Palmetto Bay vacation rentals.
