People watching is a great pastime in Miami's South Beach, which draws celebrities and beautiful people in skimpy swim attire to see and be seen. The wide and fine, white sand-covered beaches are popular spots for fashion photo shoots, so you're sure to see models. The area is known for its hip clubs and wild nightlife as well as numerous excellent restaurants.

Amazing waters, very similar to the Bahamas waters. I'll certainly come back again. I particularly liked the fact that there were rental places that would rent you an umbrella and chairs and also sold snacks, soda, and water right on the beach. Parking is very limited however, but I paid $20 for an all day valet service offered by the... More

Our family had a great experience here. The beach was clean and the water was nice. The umbrellas were 15 dollars to rent for the time you were there which came in handy since we had a toddler with us. It was just a nice environment. We stayed in Pompano and compared to their beaches it was worth the 45... More

My girlfriend and I loved south beach, beautiful turquoise water ideal for swimming and white sand. Location is also good for people watching and either spending a morning or afternoon here is a must. However, on the beach there's the odd bit of litter left behind from some idiot, which I removed. Located right on ocean drive, make sure you... More

It's the place to go when you want excitement and fun. Enjoy the beach, the board walk and new food experiences. All you care to eat lobster, a Sambucca afterwards while letting the breeze cool you down..

I/we enjoyed watching all the people. The bars and restaurants were most ennoyable and we will return sometime in the future. Ciao.

Not sure when I'll have chance to see this beach again but ... It was lovely, lovely, lovely! Beautiful sand, warm water, not so busy public part of the beach.. Was there in the mornings and late afternoons.. Nothing not to like. Heaven…

Unless you like over indulgences, who's who, and who is doing who I cannot say anything positive about this place. The beach at Harbor Beach, Ft. Lauderdale is much nicer.

South beach is a special place in the world by its modern and classic arquitecture. The avenues are beautiful and the traffic is Not caotic. Good offers of restaurants, caffes and magazines, the goods are quite expensive.
