South Beach is absolutely brilliant. We were there during Memorial weekend where there was loads of entertainment, people and fun. A short walk from Collins Avenue and right on Oceans Drive where there are loads of restaurants and bars, it was brilliant. The restaurants are quite pricey though, and for those not from the US, every price you see you... More

This is a crazy area. Money women cars and poverty a block away. Everyone should see south beach at some point but don't buy into the $50 drinks. It's a cool spot for about two days. Then you're ready to head home

It was excruciatingly hot so we rented some umbrellas and long beach chairs, and their cushions were very comfy, we were accompanied by a hard worker named louis, he took good care of us by putting in the front row when there was no space, and it's...

A great white sand beach with a lot to offer. It's pricey if you want to enjoy all of the amenities the South Beach has to offer.

August in Miami is hot. I love hot. Beach was beautiful, clean and hot. I could not even walk on the sand barefoot. Water is not the cleanest but it is like a bathtub. Not kid friendly as there are topless women and punk teens smoking and drinking but great for adults. Did I mention hot??

If you can get past the fact that no one, and I mean no one exercises manners whatsoever in this town, then you can love it for the beautiful Ocean, the soft sand, the multitude of activities to do at the beach with wave runners to rent, banana boat rides, kayaking, you name it. When you're not in the water,... More
