Golden Beach is more private, very small community with two sides - beachside and West of A1A, full of single family homes. The police is watching over your every step there. Do not go over 35 miles an hour. Golden Beach is farther away from more hectic/exciting areas of Miami Beach, so it is as quiet as it could be. Similar areas of Miami Beach will not be on the beach side, but they will be closer to South Beach, Downtown/Performing Arts and Edgewater/Midtown/Design&Art Districts.
Hope this helped,
