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.

My family visited South Miami Beach last week (We stayed at the Holiday Inn). The boardwalk and beach was terrific. There weren't too many large waves, the sand was nice and soft, (not rocky like some of the beaches in the keys we went to). Fair amount of seashells to search for. The sandbar went on for what seemed like forever, and my 4 year old daughter was able to stand out about 50-60 yards from the shore. Water was very clear, and seaweed was minimal. This is definitely one of our families favorite beaches.

Wear plenty of high SPF / waterproof sun tan lotion. I had SBF 50 on and I got burnt. My kids had SPF 85 on and didn't get burned at all.

Great place to drink, eat n listen to music. A lot of luxury cars and interesting people. Some restaurants are pricy and the valet parking too. Overall a lot of nice restaurants with art decor.

Best all around party scene! Go to the beach by day and enjoy fine dining and nightlife by night. Just remember that gratuity is typically already included, although most places the staff deserves a lil more. Already rebooked or return!

South Beach is a trendy, vibrant Art Deco District area east of Miami where people chill on the beach by day and party late into the night. Ocean Drive fronts the beach and is loaded with Boutique hotels, sidewalk dining, shopping, bars & nightclubs... and, of course, weird people. You can spend a lot of time 'people watching' from the sidewalk cafes; from the roller-skating bikini guy to some of the most beautiful women in the world. The beach itself is very good- there aren't any hotels or resorts ON the beach, so it is all public use. For a public beach, the beach is clean and well maintained. I've been there many times and don't remember seeing any trash lying around. Most people bring beach gear, but you can rent lounges & some shade at different spots along the beach. Overall, a nice beach next to a great nightlife.
