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.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Amazingly beautiful, just try to avoid crowds if possible. Nice to ride the bike up and down the beach.

“Holding up with Ocean Drive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Only place worth visiting seems to be Ocean Drive at South beach.
Otherwise South beach is filled with hotels and beach condos. For random tourist driving by Ocean Drive is worth visiting.

If you are visiting Miami you have to go to South Beach. Its not the prettiest beach in the world, but its nice! And between pretty people and nice restaurant/bar scene its definitely a treat.

“South Beach is a Must”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

South Beach is an extension of Miami Beach and has the largest concentration of Art-Deco buildings in the world, over 1200 we are told. The beach itself is really nice and goes on and on and on, really nice place to people watch! Alot of tourist shop's around and also some classy boutiques as well. Lot's of restaurants to choose from all much the same on Ocean drive, try the restaurants further back from Ocean Drive they seem to be better quality and better value. We stayed for a few day's and loved every minute

“South Beach...what else is there to say?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

One of the beautiful beaches in the USA and the world. It attracts tourists and local celebrities alike. For good reason, the sand is white and clean. The beach is wide open and the sun shines most every day. The water is clear, generally warm, and shallow enough to walk out and enjoy. Like I said, It's South Beach! One of the most beautiful beaches in the World. If you want to rent chairs and an umbrella, get ready to shell out about $35 -50.
