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.

“Where the Party is at All Night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

When in Miami I visited South Beach a few times and I can tell you that this is the place to be in! Whether it be during the day for happy hour or hanging out on the beach, or going on later in the day for the nightlife. All the big clubs like Mansion, LIV, Cameo and Story are also in the area and a close cab drive away depending where you are on the strip. If you have a chance try to aim at staying in a hotel in the area - you won't regret it. Be sure to also check out the Clevelander and Mango's as these seem to be the two busiest places at night on Ocean Drive day in and out.

“The Nightlife is for the Young or Young at Heart”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

We only visited for one evening and had dinner at the restaurant at the Breakwater Hotel. It was very nice. We walked down the beach side of the road to view the buildings and lights better. There were many people out and about, mostly 20's and 30's. Dessert at another place and a couple of art shops later and we were ready to leave the clubs to the young.
I highly recommend seeing this place at night. It is beautiful and a great place to people watch.

“Very fake and false”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

South Beach is ok if you are aged between 18-25 and like to pose. Thought it was very overated and the restaurants arn't that great. Good for a laugh at some of the odd people though!
