With just 33 homes and a population of 86, according to the 2010 census, Indian Creek Village is one of the wealthiest and most exclusive places on the planet.

The village, located on a tiny island in Miami that's primarily occupied by a golf course, is home to billionaires and A-listers from business tycoon Carl Icahn to supermodel Adriana Lima.

But don't plan to take a self-guided tour next time you're in Miami. According to Forbes' Morgan Brennan, who recently wrote about the island, "the sole entrance is heavily guarded, and a private police force patrols the island via boat, jeep and Jet Ski 24 hours a day."

Brennan uncovered a handful of Indian Creek Village's super-rich residents. We're taking a closer look at their mansions.

This is Indian Creek Island. At .4 square miles, it's one of the smallest, wealthiest, and most exclusive communities in the U.S. We'll start our tour at the top left corner, and go counterclockwise.



The first home on the island belongs to Norman Braman, a car dealership tycoon. He bought the home for $3.9 million in 1991. We're fans of all the outdoor sculptures.

An unnamed foreign buyer bought the home next door in August for $47 million, making it the most expensive home ever sold in Miami. Here it is while under construction (and a listing photo, inset).
