Welcome to Key Biscayne

Welcome to Key Biscayne!

Key Biscayne, just east of bustling Brickell Avenue and the frenetic pace of downtown Miami, is a serene and scenic island paradise and premier resort community. Although discovered by Ponce de Leon in the 1500’s, the Key was not developed until the Matheson family, in 1947, donated a large parcel of land to Miami for Crandon Park in exchange for the erection of the Rickenbacker Causeway connecting the island to Miami. Once completed, the island began to take shape attracting affluent residents seeking a low-key tropical lifestyle. President Nixon further popularized Key Biscayne when he purchased a waterfront compound in 1969 frequently referred to as the Florida White House. Key Biscayne was incorporated as its own city in 1991.
