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.

“Pleasantly Surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

What an awesome area! The beach is lovely, white sand, turquoise blue ocean. Lots of amenties on the beach, lounge chairs and umbrellas to rent, snacks for puchase. The neighborhood itself clean( for the most part). Excellent dining choices.It is very walkable. The Art Deco Architecture fabulous! I would choose South Beach over Waikiki in a heartbeat, now that I've been there.

“The place to come for Spring Break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

I have been to South beach now about 3 times. The water is a bit cool in March, but you can still swim in it if you want to. There are always lots of people on the beach, so if you want to be where the action is, that is the place to go. There are plenty of shops and restaurants too. I found a nice sunglasses case that I was specifically looking for.
There are also planes flying overhead with banners advertising events going on the the evenings.
