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.

“A little like carnivale year-round”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Yes, there's the beach and the boom boxes. The seen and be seen on the boardwalk. The art deco district. The exhibitionists and the touristos. Eurotrash and old South American money. Way too many tattoo places on Washington Avenue. But the key thing is simple -- everybody's there to have a good time. And that's what's happening.

“The glitz is for real”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Enjoyed this area. Very expensive and very active with lots of life. it is sooo expensive to dine in this area. You can be bothered by the waiters trying to usher you to their restaurants.The one nice feature is the location - by the beach and by the park. Love these features.

“one of the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

parking is a big problem there. make sure you take ample time of parking at street paid parking . short time parking is a hassle. if you have to make it vacant after you ticket expires. carry stroller for kids if possible. they might not be enthusiastic to see semi clad girls :-)

start early in the day. the more delay you do, more hot it will be to face. take apmle of water bottle . these are dead costly over threr. get one big pack from wallmart etc.

don't drink too much , it will spoil your evening . make advance reservation for dance clubs.

Very calm and clean beach. Wasn't too crowded (went in the first week of May). Definitely coming back.
