Tiny Fisher Island lies just off the east coast of Miami, Florida, and it is a luxurious island paradise in the midst of the metropolis. The man-made island is named after the developer who first owned it after it had been dredged in 1905. Today, it remains accessible only by boat, and the Fisher Island resorts are among the finest and most exclusive in all of South Florida.
Visiting Fisher Island
Miami International Airport is 11 miles west of Fisher Island—you can go as far as Miami Beach's Terminal Island (by train and bus, taxi, or rental car) before you need to take the ferry, which is exclusive to invited guests only—Fisher Island hotels will organize your clearance in advance. After you arrive, you'll discover it's all about the ultimate pampering experience. Hotels in Fisher Island have everything you can imagine, and a lot you can't! There are private beaches, golf courses, tennis courts, gourmet restaurants, cocktail bars, spas, and much more ready for your arrival.
If you can manage to tear yourself away from the island long enough to visit the rest of the city, take advantage of plentiful cheap hotels in Miami that will help to offset your budget. Don't forget to check out the Art Deco District, the legendary party place South Beach, or the Latin-inspired Little Havana district. For exploring around South Florida, it's possible to rent a car in Fisher Island and take it to the mainland on the ferry, but there are more rental options in Downtown Miami and Miami Beach as well.
To experience true luxury and exclusivity, book a vacation to Fisher Island, and remember that the Travelocity Price Guarantee will match a lower price and refund the difference, so you can be sure you're getting the best possible price.
