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.

We were there during Art Deco Weekend and enjoyed people watching and walking along the boardwark and Ocean Drive. A great visit, especially during the winter months because the weather is still pretty nice.

Awesome area of Miami. The building style is cool and very modern and very artsy looking. As an artist I really enjoyed that about this area. Drive down Collins Ave for sure!!

The boardwalk is nice and so is the water and sand. Otherwise, it's an absolute horror show of wannabes, fake body parts and generally douchiness of the absolute highest order. Everything you go to do, touch, eat or even look at will incur massive fees, charges, tips and other costs. it's designed to empty your wallet as quickly as possible.... More

Just love south beach even on wet days the beach is always busy. I just enjoyed sitting watching the surf & of course people watching. From volleyball to jogging there always something to see. Every time I visit Miami I can't wait to get to the beach to wind down.

We visited South Beach and it is so beautiful! Walk along the pier and you get a brilliant view. The water is so clear and bright blue.

First time here. There are a lot of rocks at the water's edge so be careful. The kids enjoyed exploring near the rocks. The beach was private, relaxing, and safe. There is service here as well.

We loved our experience at the beach. We were in time to see the sunrise, unfortunately to be welcomed by clouds on the horizon. Nonetheless it was a great experience. I need not say more about the beach because everybody knows how much fun this beach can be. The interesting part was people doing Yoga (Surya Namaskar) as the sun... More

No review needed I guess. If you're in Miami Beach you're here for the beach right? The beach is well maintained and clean, and the beach patrols give a good feel. There could be an occasional shark passing by, but don't worry. Beach patrols or locals will get you out of the water before anything happens. Piece of advise: if... More

Gorgeous weather makes South Beach a great winter destination! Although a little tawdry, it is surrounded by expensive condos, there are great restaurants, and the tours were fun
