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.

“Very nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

It was very nice, plenty of eye candy, but the parking was horrible and when we could find parking the rates were out of the world expensive.

“Great Place to visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

What can you say baby, it is SOUTH BEACH. If you like to watch people, play in the ocean and see beautiful cars then you really need to experience South Beach. I plan to visit as often as possible. It was an experience to remember for a lifetime. We met and sat with Sequel O'Neal. Unexpected surprise on Lincoln Blvd.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Had 2 small children during BCS Championship. THey wanted to experience ocean and the beach while in Miami. Asked the Concierge at the Downtwn Marriott nearest public beach.She said Bal Harbor was a fovorite spot for her. Needed a car. About a 20 minute drive from downtown. Public parking with about a 5 minute walk to beach. Small children loved it. Found shells,built a sandcastle, Surf was very safe for an 8 and 4 year old. Very quiet,
