Coconut Grove is one of Miami’s original neighborhoods situated along Biscayne Bay, just a few miles south of Downtown Miami and Brickell. Although Coconut Grove is located in Miami, Coconut Grove, known to the locals as “The Grove,” is unlike any other neighborhood in Miami. Coconut Grove sets itself apart with its laid-back friendly environment, lush landscaping, serene streets, breathtaking parks, boutique shops, delicious restaurants, unique artistic expression and Bohemian-style feel. Coconut Grove is truly a sparkling gem and is one of the most-sought-after-places in South Florida to call home because it is such an extraordinary village. The Grove allows you to be tucked away in privacy in your own home, but is only minutes from the vibrant streets and bright lights of South Beach, Brickell and Miami’s Arts District. Living in Coconut Grove really offers Coconut Grove residents the best of both worlds.
Coconut Grove is an extraordinarily-unique place for any boating enthusiast. Coconut Grove is well known for its variety of marinas, which affords residents the opportunity to choose a marina that best suits his/her individual needs. Coconut Grove features the Dinner Key Marina, The Grove Harbour Marina and the Coral Reef Yacht Club.
