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.

“I am rating the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

The beach itself is clean, beautiful and the sand is nice. Unfortunately we landed there right at Spring break so it was really crowded. There is a park and a large strip of walk way, bathrooms, play areas so it is very convenient and organized. There is also plenty of shades from the palm trees.

“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.
