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 place to visit and lots of bars and restaurants. Perfect for people watching or just chilling with a beer or cocktail. Drinks can be on the expensive side but it’s a must at least once when you’re in Miami Beach.

The beach is clean, with expensive beach chairs so bring your own towels. There's a sandbar, too! Clean water and pretty clear water, as well.
