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.

“Lots of excitement”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

There were lots of stores, places to eat and a place that served German beer! If you are a people watcher, this is the place to go. We walked 2 1/2 miles to get their and it was worth the walk! Definitely will go back!

“Take advantage of the bike scheme”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Loved the bike scheme around south beach so easy to use and loads of pick up/drop off points doted all around. This was the best way to get around not only up and down south beach pathways and the parks but to cycle around the back streets

“Awesome big VIBE great city!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Many bars and restaurants to visit. Eat later the locals don't eat until 9 or 10 at night. If you eat early go back to your room for a nap. The bars and clubs start filling up at midnight!

“Big Bus Miami tours and boat tour.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

If you want to see Miami, Miami south beach, and a boat trip read on!
The trip around Miami from the top of the double decker bus is a great way to see so many areas.
You can hop on and off or just stay for the duration.
We took a beach loop combined with a city loop plus a boat trip in between.
It took around 5 hours and was fantastic value at $59.00.
One of the guides named Hernandez or Herman was amazing.
He entertained us live and we did not need the earphones.
What a character- he should be in the comedy movies.
Big Bus Tours should give him a major salary increase.

“Hot Beautiful Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

A hot beautiful day at the beach,what more could we ask for. It was a hot day with beautiful people so we really enjoyed our stroll on the beach.It a was very crowded day there, music playing, pets being walked, and children playing. We were all so glad to see the beautiful water.
