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.

“Would go ahain tomorrow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Visited south beach folliwing a cruise. Didn't need to rent a car, walked everywhere from our hotel, The Pelican, on Ocean Blvd. Fantastic restaurants, easy to navigate, amazing people, gorgeous beach and the best cushioned lounge chairs ever. Loved it!

“An ocean of enjoying!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

I must confess something: Before 2013, I'd never visited USA. Call me old fashioned, cause I remained fascinated to Europe and its classical beauty. But... there´s a first time for everything. And a second time, in this case. In my first one, I didn´t count with many time to knew and enjoyed South Beach, cause my family and I returned from Orlando, We only had four days before returning to our homeland.
But in 2014 we had our revenge! We stayed at Collins Avenue and 43st, around the corner from Beach. However, access to the beach are simple and it has parking and public transport. Chairs, parasols and towels are rented along the entire beach and have broad price according to what part of the beach you are, so is suitable to stay in the sector with more affordable prices if you want to spend less money. You also have acuatic distractions, such as Jet ski or parapente (in a few shores)
Water presents Caribbean colour, the sea is often calm but if you can´t swim you must searching for a place who has lifeguard.
If you want to eat, you have lots of options just a block away, on Collins Av. Don´t miss beach sunsets, they´re awesome!

“Bring tons of money!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Loved it, hated how much we had to spend to have fun. It is not a place for the cheap at heart or wallet. We dropped thousands in just a few days. Get ready to see some sights, spend lots of money and bring home the great memories. Fun time! We will go back again some day.

“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.
