South Beach is really lovely and clean, lots of amenities. Areas to excercise and roller skate. Watch the body builders - men and women. Loads of good eating places

This is my 2nd visit to SOBE. We Went today, we arrived at around 9 a.m. and found parking right in front of the Larios on the Beach Restaurant. We walked Ocean Drive, Collins Ave. and Lincoln Road. My daughter took her longboard and absolutely loved longboarding everywhere (this was her first visit to SOBE). We walked on the beach,... More

South Beach is a fun, eclectic mix of architecture and lifestyles with great restaurants and bars. We were able to explore the area using the bus service which also is wheelchair accessible.

We went to the beach knowing we'd be able to rent chairs and an umbrella. We were pleasantly given the price info and promptly escorted to our area. The young man that did all of the transactions - Carlos C. - was very friendly, efficient and helpful. Depending on your budget, you might find it a little pricey but you... More

Not sure what kind of visit to South Beach can take place without one actually physically walking on the beach but this is probably one of the world's best... super-long so it's great for a long stroll or a morning/evening run (wouldn't recommend the hot time during the day!) and full of places to hang out. The ocean itself is... More

We were so excited about going to south beach but were a little underwhelmed within five minutes! The beach was quite dirty with cigarette ends and bottle tops and was VERY overcrowded! Due to temps of 98f we had little choice but to hire a brolly, which all appear to be guarded by a grumpy sweaty man who yells at... More
