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.

“Love Miami Beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We love visiting South Beach Miami, especially for the amazing beaches. The sand is bright white and fine. The water is crystal clear and usually cool enough to cool you down but not too hot. The beaches are wide and provide lots of space for people to lay out. They do get pretty crowded in the summer months so get out there early and bring your sunscreen!

“Very nice beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

The beach along the entire South Beach area is beautiful and clean. We stayed around 4th street and the beach was much less crowded then up around Lincoln Road where all of the large hotels are located.
