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.

Clean, good

Clean beaches, good parties. I like the landscape and clean. Good place to walk, ride in a bike, or just seat in a bar and drink a good cocktail

We drove over to South Beach from down town and were surprised that we were able to find a free car park one street back from Ocean Drive. South Beach is an absolute delight if you are into art deco architecture. The buildings and the colours are magnificent and makes one wonder what happened to that golden age of architecture....

Attracts tourists with cheap fun....although Mangos nightclub is a great way to get a feel of south beach and all things Latin....lots of cheap looking clothing stores....and restaurants with bad expensive food....go on Lincoln rd. to eat out ....so much more fun

So. My first time walking out to the beach I said... "This is South Beach?" Yep, the place you hear about in songs and TV. Not many famous people walking around here, but lots of pertty people. I might suggest some caution if your have small children... South Beach is not known for being "G" rated. Heat of the day... More

I've visited several times and have found South Beach ranges from delightful to tacky. It's loud, beachy, waiters try to talk you into eating at their streetside eatery, people are drinking ridiculously large drinks, some dressed very well, others wear hardly any clothes. Folks on vacation enjoying themselves. I don't think it's a place for young children. The architecture is... More

Clean beach, lots of room. There are plenty of restaurants near by to get food. There are restrooms throughout the beach as well.
