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.

Enjoyed this area. Very expensive and very active with lots of life. it is sooo expensive to dine in this area. You can be bothered by the waiters trying to usher you to their restaurants.The one nice feature is the location - by the beach and by the park. Love these features.

parking is a big problem there. make sure you take ample time of parking at street paid parking . short time parking is a hassle. if you have to make it vacant after you ticket expires. carry stroller for kids if possible. they might not be enthusiastic to see semi clad girls :-)

start early in the day. the more delay you do, more hot it will be to face. take apmle of water bottle . these are dead costly over threr. get one big pack from wallmart etc.

don't drink too much , it will spoil your evening . make advance reservation for dance clubs.

Very calm and clean beach. Wasn't too crowded (went in the first week of May). Definitely coming back.

I've been on worse beaches. It's a great place to watch people and to have a bit of swim but as a beach it barely makes the grade. Coarse sand, crowded with umbrellas, lounges and quite a swathe is set aside and packed down as a road. A bit of rubbish in the water. Shallow for along way out and no waves.
