Nice beach, generally clean and not to steep. Surf is steady and often grows through the day but never a problem getting in and out of the warm water. When the tide is out there are huge expanses to explore due to the gentle slope....More

If you go anywhere in the South Beach area, make sure you lock your car and belongings in a safe. Don't leave anything valuable in your room, including passports, money, camera equipment, computers, anything. You'll get robbed as soon as you turn your back. Sorry,...More
