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.

“Nice sandy beaches but nothing else”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

South Miami beaches are great sandy and large beaches but overall you get there to say "I was there". We've travelled extensively around the world and saw far better beaches in South America or the Red Sea, so great beach watcher, nice atmosphere, but don't expect too much.

“Best Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

It's probably really touristy, but if you are looking to have a good time you have to stay here. You will find everything on the strip.

“A lovely, congested, lively place with lots of excitement and restaurants. Good people watching”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

We think it is a great place to visit and relax and nothing that we disliked. Los of electricity in the air. Like going on vacation without leaving the country.
