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.

Having seen photos of South Beach and the Art Deco area, we were very impressed with the real thing. It is both attractive and entertaining.

You can sit and have a drink at one of the numerous bars and restaurants and just people watch. You will also see the full range of status symbols from Rolls Royces to Porches, to Harleys, cruising up and down.

With such a range of restaurants the competition means you can eat at a very reasonable price and half price deals are available late afternoon.

All this and a great beach across the road.

One downside is the disgusting state of the public toilets which appear not to be cleaned during the day. On a Sunday both the mens and womens were overflowing - yuk. Make sure you use those in the bars and restaurants.

Wonderful place to visit. You can have hours of enjoyment walking around, people watching, relaxing in a bar, sitting on the beach and enjoying the art deco buildings. Plenty to see and enjoy and lots of food and beverage outlets to try.

Nice and relaxed beach with hotels, dining, swimming, biking, segwaying, etc. etc. White beaches are cleaned every morning. I am jogging every morning on the beach were some people are doing Yoga, very relax. The hotspot for car spotting
