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.

Stay off the streets and go to the beaches. Anything south of 10th and Washington is off limits at night.

South beach has it all. Fantastic beach, great restaurants where you can sit and people watch for hours. Hotels range in price so shop around and get exactly what you want. Lower South Beach offers a quieter, chill vibe, if your not looking to dance the night away ...

This beach is everything you would expect it to be plus the cool ocean breeze feels really good. Beach was clean and water was clear and just right temperature. Only thing that could be better is if the sand was a little finer like in Panama City Beach. Will definitely visit again.

This is a beautiful large beach for swimming, playing, people-watching or just getting a good tan. It is what made Miami Beach famous. A great place to spend the weekend.

it is of course a tourist place, mostly mass tourist restaurants and fun places but it is the place to go for fun and lively moments - often overpriced and lower food quality. Seen and to be seen.
