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.

One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to (and I have been to very many in the Caribbean, Australia, Hawaii, Guam, etc.) White sand and blue ocean!

My friendsa and I had an amazing day on South Beach this weekend thanks to the very kind and professional folks that work for the Boucher Brothers. Lisa & Luis were both attendative and professional. Luis check back with us frequently and was also a wave away for our needs. My hotel didn't have beach chair access so the Bouch... More

First time ever going to South Beach. Laid out and went swimming on the quieter end. Stayed away from the party scene. Very relaxing. The water was perfect temperature. The sand was soft. I wanted to stay forever.

This is the place to people watch, while enjoying the surf and sand. Many restaurants and hotels line this strip. It is a party place, so if you don't have your party on, this might not be the place for you, which is why I gave it 4 stars. Plenty of beautiful beaches in this part of the world, without... More

Loved the beach! Clean and not very crowded. Shells washing up was a nice surprise. Police presence known which made it even better, felt safe.

Visited during Spring Break in March, and the beach wasn't overcrowded and was spotless. I felt safe leaving my bag on the sand which I went for a quick dip - gorgeous beach!!

Although the beach is beautiful, it's crowded and VERY limited parking. Every restaurant was packed, so we just drove through. Too may people and too much partying going on. Not my kind of fun. Drove to Key West instead.

We visited this restaurant Easter Weekend. The restaurant is on Collins Avenue. They have indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor seating is right on the sidewalk. The beer was nice and cold and the burgers were incredible. The burger was too big for me to eat along with the fries. The servers were very friendly and polite. It was just... More
