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 had a nice time on the boardwalk, but the beach was covered with untold tons of seaweed for miles. I'm sure it can't always be this way, but nonetheless the beach was a mess. Yuck. I've included a pic from another post that shows what I'm talking about.

The beach is really beautiful, the most famous beach and probably the best beach in Miami. Nice people and amazing hotels around there. So close to the ocean Drive, the most famous place to hang out in Miami.

Great beach, was within walking distance of hotel. Wide sandy beach with many things to do. Laying around on lounge chair with umbrella and watch the people was the best.
