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.

Loved South Beach, so much atmosphere. We were there New Year's Eve and it was peak time which added to the atmosphere on the beach. I thought it might be too much of a scene and too-cool-for-school but it wasn't at all. Many people told us to stay away from here and just come to visit but I regret listening... More

An amazing sight to see; white sand, clear, blue water. Would love to go back and go parasailing with my wife.

The beach was amazing but a little bit expensive for the sun beds. We had a great day but would maybe go further towards Ocean Drive.

I can't wait until I hit the lottery and become rich enough to move to south beach. The constant energy and the amazing weather makes it paradise.

A beautiful place with a vibrant night life and absolutely stunning natural beauty! That being said I think the only thing that was a negative were the natives were extremely rude and had no driving skills what so ever! So if you make this trip I recommend a hotel on collins ave. the lower streets 19 and down and minimilize... More

We live in Florida, less than an hour away from south beach, but we have not visited in a couple of years. We went for the weekend and loved every minute of it. Came home with the agreement that we will do it more often. South beach has a great vibe. Great restaurant choices, and it gives you that feeling... More

Plenty of chairs and umbrellas to rent. The going rate is about $10, you can also get a combo package for 2 chairs and an umbrella for $20. Make sure to shake out the sand from the previous occupant one person in our group got bit by a bug from either the mattress or some sort of sand flea. Despite... More

Simply one of the best beaches I have ever been to. Clear water, nice sand and a good balance with how many people are at the beach.
