Highlights of Bal Harbour Shops

Bal Harbour Shops is an attractive place to shop due to its outdoor, open-air setup. Though it has the structure of a traditional shopping mall with 3 full floors of retail stores and services, it's not enclosed, so you can enjoy the fresh air the whole time you're out and about.

The selection of stores includes some of the biggest upscale brands represented in department stores, women's and men's fashions, shoes, accessories, jewelry, children's wear, books, gifts, home goods, and personal care. You can even grab a bite on-site at restaurants like Bianco Gelato, Carpaccio, Makoto, Hillstone at Bal Harbour, and Le Zoo.

Good to know about Bal Harbour Shops

Parking at Bal Harbour Shops is available in the mall's parking garage for your convenience, but it is a pay lot. Call ahead for rates, and be sure to have your ticket validated for a reduced parking cost. Public transportation can also drop you close to the mall.

Some services for people with disabilities are available. Again, it's a good idea to call the mall to ask about any accommodations you might need. The mall is not pet-friendly, so even on a leash dogs should not be brought unless they are service animals.
