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.

The beaches at 3rd and 4th street on Ocean Drive are great. Clean, not too populated, and terrific sights. If you get hungry, you can go to the Pink - not too far away.

“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This is the beach area you always hear about in Florida. It's legendary but it can also be crowded, depending on the season. You gotta go at least once.

“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.
