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.

“Diversity at its finest!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

A walk along the actual beach, along the water from 17th to 1st displays a melting pot of people. Some you might expect and then some unexpected!

“One of the Best Beaches on the East Coast.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Stayed by the 10th Street Beach for 4 days. Very clean beach. Chairs are available for $10, umbrellas for $15. There is absolutely no surf here. I read a review about good surf in south beach? Don't even attempt to surf. The waves never get above a foot.

“Great beach and nice strips of shops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is an interesting place filled with people and party all day long. Nice long strip of beach and fabulous place with nice shops, stores, restaurants and building architecture. It is one of the must places in Miami. Lots of things to do there and love the nice beach.
