Overview

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.

It’s a bit shabby in places - which lets down Miami really. Miami overall is very expensive and having visited four times over the past 20 years you can see the deterioration in the environment.

Had a lovely relaxing walk up south beach then a nice dip in the clear blue water just what was needed before a long flight back to London, if your in Miami get down to south beach you won't be disappointed

Typical Florida east coast beach. Wide, hard sand beach. Great for walking and sunning. People come to People Watch and to be watched. Nothing special

Great place to go if you want to bar crawl! Very fun! A little crowded on the weekends at night but overall you'll have a great time!

South Beach is a beautiful beach. It can get quite crowded in summer. There are lots of beach sports available. Great place to relax
