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.

“Perfect beach in winter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

For us from the North, walking or bathing on this relax strip of sand and ocean is just great. Just next to the Art deco district, you don't need to drive, just walk 2 minutes and enjoy ! And you probably see funny things like photo shoot or so... Nice city beach, really !

“What a Trip...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Sand, Sea, Sun and the Parties... What a spontaneous trip me and my friends had for two days just to relax and reboot after three months in Naples Florida.

Shopping centers, Nightclubs, Restaurants and more kept us busy and the Miami lifestyle is just tooooo good we did not wanna leave. We will be back in March 2013

“Nice and clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

The area seemed to be very clean, on the contrary of some beliefs. We enjoyed it thoroughly, even though it was mid December.

If you are planning to stay in Miami, you must stay in South Beach. That's where all the good stuff is.
