One of the most upscale neighborhoods belonging to Miami Beach is Star Island, located west of the barrier island just off of the MacArthur Causeway near Palm and Hibiscus Island. This guard gated community is near the South Beach area of the city as well as Downtown Miami, located less than fifteen minutes to the west and it comprises part of several waterfront communities that collectively make up the Miami Beach Islands. In the case of Star Island, its homes are owned—or were owned–by some of the most well-known names in sports, music, movies and beyond including singer Gloria Estefan, athlete Shaquille O’Neal, and actor Don Johnson, perhaps best known for his role in the 1980s television series Miami Vice.
