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.

What can I say I lived most of my life here and I love this city. I have been away for a while traveling mostly into Mexico but coming back to South Beach Miami is always good and one of the best places in the world for me.

..in a very good way. The beach is very nice, great for jogging and hanging out. Beyond the beach you have a surplus of restaurants, bars, cafés and shops... loads of cool and good looking people there and the "women" ..the women are ridiculous! The amount a beauty on the streets and many in bikinis is just insane!!!! It's a... More

I love this area. It is a beautiful beach with a cool vibe. The art deco designed buildings are beautiful and bring a lot of character to the area. You will feel like you are in the Caribbean with the beautiful white sand beach. You can rent chairs and umbrellas if they are not included with your hotel. If you... More

Unless you go on a rainy day or on a festival/spring break day (very busy), you won't be disappointed. Bring sunscreen and an umbrella, and some things to drink because everything you rent or buy is expensive there. I like it around 14th st because there are showers and toilets, and also close to the South Pointe park but it's... More

This is a beautiful beach with nice sand and blue water. We felt like we were in the Caribbean. The bathroom however were nasty and uncleaned. No soap by the sink either. With all the money the city of Miami takes in from parking, high priced chair rentals, and high priced drinks on the beach ($4 for a bottle of... More
