Palm and Hibiscus Islands Since I'm not sure which island this was on . . . all the homes (other than those on Star Island) will be listed as "Palm and Hibiscus Islands." Palm and Hibiscus Islands are two man-made islands separated by a short bridge which connects to I-395 going into Miami Beach. The islands are located between South Beach, Downtown Miami and Venetian Islands to the North. In the early days, the two man-made islands hosted the famous Latin Quarter which showcased big name celebrities like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, Jack Benny and Tony Bennett. The Latin Quarter was known for its three shows a night, complete with beautiful chorus girls.
