The ocean front Town of Golden Beach sits on 1.3 miles along the northernmost portion of State Road A1A at the Miami-Dade/ Broward County line in South Florida. This small jewel of a town is bounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the East, the Intracoastal Waterway to the West, and the coastal municipalities of Hallandale Beach to the North and Sunny Isles Beach to the South. Nestled in exclusivity and privacy within a short driving distance from the large urban areas of Miami and Ft. Lauderdale, Golden Beach is convenient to fine dining, cultural centers, professional sports venues, and world class shopping centers such as the prestigious Shoppes of Bal Harbour.
Since its incorporation in 1929, Golden Beach has become one of the most desirable places to live in South Florida. This small quiet community has maintained its family lifestyle in a mile-long sanctuary of 370 single-family homes that are mostly located on the Intracoastal and its waterways or directly on the Atlantic Ocean. The Town Charter protects the Town from commercial activity of any kind and forbids the construction of high rise condominiums that saturate so many beach front communities in South Florida. A beautiful mile and one-eighth of private beach with a historic beach Pavilion, 3 parks, and a committed sense of community have attracted talented, discerning residents from all over the world to this idyllic town located only 18 miles from Miami International Airport and 15 miles from Ft. Lauderdale International and Port Everglades.
An elected Mayor and four Council Members govern the Town of Golden Beach, with elections being held every two years. Day to day affairs of the Town are under the leadership of a Town Manager who is appointed by the Town Council. The Council also employs a Town Clerk and a Town Attorney.
The Town provides security through its own Police Department. The Building and Zoning Department, Finance and Administrative Department, and the Public Works Department provide other services.
