Star Island History

Star Island is a man-made island and one of the smallest neighborhoods in South Florida. The island is south of the Venetian Islands and just east of Palm and Hibiscus islands. Completed by the Army Corps of Engineers in 1922, the land was initially owned by developer Carl Fisher.

Today Star Island is the site of a few dozen spectacular homes. The gated island provides breath taking views of the city and Biscayne Bay along with easy access to everything Miami and Miami Beach have to offer. It is no wonder that this tiny gem of an island has been the preferred residence of big celebrity names like Gloria Estefan.
