The sand is so clean; the water and waves are so soothing and nice to play in and swim in. Sunbathing is so easy at this beach.

12th Street Beach is a well maintained tan sand beach. They have a lifeguard, facilities, parking is a problem, restaurants and shopping in the area.

The ultimate. A nice white sandy beach, with adjacent facilities and restaurants with athletic gay guys as well as others. If your gay this is the place. If you're not gay, you'll still be welcomed and able to enjoy the environment as well.

While in South Beach, don't forget to stroll and view the Art Deco Lifeguard Huts! Gorgeous! They are, however, reproductions, according to a display in the Art Deco Museum (which is part of the Welcome Center on Ocean Drive.)

This area of the South Beach beachfront is the Gay area. We saw the Rainbow flags flying. The area has lifeguards and a public restroom area.
