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.

“Hot spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

South Beach is a great experience but very expensive. Walk along Collins Avenue, check out the clubs and bars. In my experience, Mango's was the best bar.

South Beach draws an affluent crowd,: nice cars, beautiful clothes, beautiful people. The restaurants are expensive, but good. Good wine, good food, good cocktails, beautiful beach- what more could you want?

“Never been before, but how could you not like it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

Like streets in Europe, oodles of cafes, great ambiance, good people watching - though the hostesses are like the time share sales folks in Cabo San Lucas (well maybe not quite as aggressive).

“Very nice/grainy sand”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great place to see and be seen. The sand is very rough and grainy, not like the soft white sand of the west coast.
