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 beach was super clean, beautiful and fun. By 5pm the beach was filled with pleasant people, yoga classes, light music, ripping waves and fun!

Great beach. Long and broad - it doesn’t feel crowdy. Clean. We had sunbeds through the hotel with service, recommend!

Had to travel 40 mins for some great Indian food. Started with rassam soup, califlower manchuria- excellent! Dinner was chiana masala and the best garlic nan we've ever tasted. Lots of vegetarian and vegan choices. Host was super friendly!
