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.

Great weather while we were there. A few scattered showers during our 7days but they go by pretty quickly.

So I fell in love with South Beach! Outside the front door of our hotel was shopping, clubs, eateries, very hustle bustle, BUT, walk thru the hotel to the other side and nothing but a relaxing pool, beaches, palm trees Ahhhhhh the best of both worlds! Can't wait to go back!

Went here for vacation and honestly I've never seen clear water in person and this was incredible! The water does have some sea plants in it but otherwise it's clear and turquoise and just beautiful.

This beautiful winding trail takes one past iconic hotels, restaurants, and lifeguard stations spaced along the expanse of Miami Beach on the other side. Walkers , runners, and bikes share the space easily, and prior to the boardwalk by the larger hotels to the North, there are access points to the beach itself.

The most stunning beach I have ever visited. Beautiful white sands and clear warm water, with absolutely stunning views a,l round. The life guard huts are situated well apart so you feel safe at all times, and the colours make them stand out as well as looking pretty! Stunning place.

Well I'm Caribbean so I'm a bit of a beach snob but I like South Beach for the most part. The weekend we went, there was a storm at sea so we had a lot of seaweed near the shoreline. The final day we went, there were guppies, which freaks me out so I didnt go in the water. During... More
