Quick visit the day prior to cruising. Nice beach and choices of places to eat. Enjoyed a nice stroll along the walkway. Traffic and parking are terrible and expensive, $20 minimum. Public bathroom filthy. I would not recommend.

A great place and obviously very trendy. Quite a bit of roadworks going on when we went so the traffic was mad. Worth a visit although we chose to stay a few blocks down the road where it seemed a little less busy!

Nice area-had not been there in 25+ years and the scenery is marvelous. Keep an eye out what you pay fordrinks-always ask. Worth the trip.

South beach has an atmosphere of its own, the beach is huge and the vibe is great, with big diversity and great people watching. Certainly worth a few days to relax into

Everyone recommends the place and I took a stroll down the beach strip. A lot of restaurants and saw a few celebs. Mangoes is a very recommended place, but didn't get a chance to experience it. Have to definitely do it again.

Deep sandy beaches with great swimming and people watching. Chairs and umbrellas for rent. Bathroom facilities off the beach. Great food steps away all along the length of the beach. The place to see and be seen

The staff on the beach are excellent and the sun loungers are really comfortable, especially with the sun blocker. There are also beach beds and snacks available.
