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.

In general it's cool to say that we have visited Miami beach and the Sout Beach. But we would not come back here as it's generally just to expensive. A regular draft beer cost 10$++. The food was also quite simple but still expensive. Anyway,...More

South Beach is huge and runs into Miami Beach so you could go for a walk/run along the beach and be gone for hours (take water with you)! There are sections of the beach with sunbeds & umbrellas which are allocated to specific hotels, there...More

In fact I'd probably just say you should spend all your time in Miami here. We really enjoyed renting bikes and riding them along the beach, shopping on the main strip, eating at the restaurants that were there too and swimming at the beach. Great...More

The art deco area and beach were nice, although the locals and service industry staff were rude. Expensive to eat out.
