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.

Restaurant and bar are good. Laid back. Ocean view room was good--wished we had a balcony and doors, but nice any way. The Aveda Spa... More

We spent two days in a cabana in front of the Stanton hotel on South Beach. What a great location and drink service right on the beach at our cabana. Well worth the splurge and the higher cost of drinks.

We love coming to south beach and watching the tourists. We live near Ft. Lauderdale but have a free place to stay in south beach. When we visit the beach it's fun to watch tourists come to the waters edge and dip their toes in the water. Living in Florida I realize we take for granted the beautiful ocean. You... More

Never a dull moment on the beach in South Beach. Go in around 7th Street - close to some good restaurants if you want a break. If you don't have your own beach chair and plan to stay awhile, invest the $20 or so for a rented lounge or cabana from the many services on the beach.

We spent a very relaxing afternoon on South beach, which was a ten minute walk from our hotel. The hotel provided beach towels and complimentary beach loungers at the beach
