Owner description: 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.

“One of the finest beaches around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We were here a few weeks ago and loved the area. South Beach is perfect for relaxing on the beach and enjoying the restaurants just a few hundred yards away. Warm water and clean beach areas--also not too crowded when we were there.

“People Watching!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

How can you not enjoy watching people enjoying themselves!? An amazing amount of tropical adult beverages are being consumed! I am sure the later the evening the wilder the scene. Have fun!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Well, it's complicated to talk about Miami's beaches when you are Brazilian! Of course, they are great ones, but ours are so much better haha

“Not Impressed !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Maybe because I've been to many beaches around the world, and therefore I seem to have a different standard of a great beach. South Beach is just another ordinary beach, with nothing at all impressive. Do not be fooled by the tv shows !
