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.

The surroundings are what we expected: the Art Deco, the cars, the boardwalk; the beautiful people; but the feel of the place is so much more. The heat, the mood, the vibe and the happiness... felt safe, too :) Parking was very reasonable at 7th Street City car park (just off Washington) - 12 hours for just $10. Hired bicycles... More

The was my first time to Florida. We had an extra day to spend in Florida after our Western Caribbean Cruise so we stayed at a hotel 1 block away from the beach. Awesome beach, bright sun and great waves. I could walk out quite a ways before it was up to my neck. We spent a couple of hours... More

Our experience in south beach was drastically marred by the arrogant rude people, from waiters who hassle you into restaurants to people talking to the waiting staff like they were dirt. The beach is ok, nothing to write home about, hotels are variable and again the staff have a bad attitude. Don't go there go the keys instead where they... More

South beach does not disappoint and depicts iconic Miami. The beach stretches for miles and the views are amazing. Restaurants and bars surround the beach consisting of an excellent variety. Whilst the nightlife does not disappoint. With amazing weather a beach towel is all you need to enjoy the sun and it's so easy to spend and entire day at... More

Everything about Miami and its beaches just makes you want to quit your job and move here. My eyes seemed like I was in a Claritin commercial. Things were so bright clear and colorful. It was awesome!!! Talk about caliente'!!!!!

We stayed here because we wanted to be by the beach and maybe go out one night. You get that and so much more. There's something for everyone no matter your age and it's always alive! It kind of reminds me of Manhattan, just by the beach. If you don't want to go out to dance, go to any one... More
