Owner description: 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.

So much to see and do and the food is fabulous. Have a drink in the afternoon in one of the cafés on Ocean Dr and people watch. You'll stay entertained all day.

“You Gotta Go”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

South Beach is a microcosm of humanity. It has tremendous highlights and yet reality pokes through the haze of tropical fantasy. Be prepared for high prices in restaurants, but there are always the usual fast food joints and some reasonable diners and small restaurants. Be careful--you can easily be ripped off by the claims of certain restaurants. For example, they say, 2 for 1 drink but it us a far cry from what you would expect. You can go to South Pointe and see million-dollar towers and yet go into a local bakery and have someone follow you in for a quarter. The beach is free and beautiful but the city itself is not the cleanest. However, I saw workers out cleaning the streets every day. Public transportation is a breeze--local buses are only a quarter and a trip from the airport to South Beach is only $2.35. You can walk up and down the streets and enjoy the art deco architecture, the aroma of different kinds of restaurants, loud music, bright lights and the beach always present as your friend. Miami is not far if you want to take a bus in, only $2, We went to the Zoo and had a great time even though we had to take 2 buses and the metro--a fun challenge. Enjoy!

“Excellent beach”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

Lovely beach with a warm ocean. Great restaurants. Everything is close by and accessible.
If you are in Miami, you should go to South beach. Water is clear, fine white sand and very nice view.
I was lucky enough to see some naked bodies on the beach :)

“Small dog capital of the world”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Very interesting place good for people watching and of course any variety of small dogs. People walk or bike any time of the day or night, and there are lots of good restaurants and entertaining things to do. The beach was surprisingly beautiful as well. A great holiday place
