Excellent place to visit. People very friendly and helpful. Took a cruise around the island and it was gorgeous. The whole area radiated Miami.

“You need to be invited”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

This is a beautiful, exclusive place, only reachable by boat. If you know someone in the island and they invite you, you can go across the causeway.

“Fisher Island is an exclusive, private retreat for the rich and famous.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

Firstly, the island is only accessible by boat or helicopter. There is a ferry service that runs every 15 minutes, and the ride is about 7 minutes long. During peak season, there is a ferry running every 7-10 minutes.

If I recall correctly, the Island (which has it's own zip code) had the highest average income per household I think in all of the United States according the census.

To get on the island, you need to be either be a resident, an equity member ($200k), or you must be a guest of one of the two.

The island has everything you need. To mention a few things... there are 6 restaurants (with delivery for the lazy), a golf course, 18 tennis courts, private beaches, two marinas for your mega-yacht, an observatory to gaze into deep space, and a five star hotel.

Dont get excited about any wild nightlife here... The island is very conservative. You'll find the Sunset Bar, Garwood Lounge and Snooker Club all to be fine places to get a drink, but don't expect any loud music or party people.

I've been a resident for 10+ years. It's a beautiful place, and a great investment for those who can afford it. The best time to run into your favorite celebs and billionares is between December and April!

“Can get on the island.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

This is for the high rich class. You can only get on the island via a ferry. And if you know someone there or you own a place. They have a hotel to rich for my blood.
