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.

Miami Beach in January

The Weather was fantastic and barely as many people as there are in the summer. No humidity like in the summer too. The beach is clean and the beach service is great too.

After being in the bahamas- miami sobe was dirty, regulated and snobby. Lifeguards everywhere which is good but since the flags waving were red and purple my family got whistled at several times because they went two feet out. Goodness they couldn't even swim pass the break through waves. So it wasn't like the free living Caribbean.

South Beach is crowded. dirty and overrated. If you're going to Miami for South Beach, you'd be better off going to another beach that is less crowded and less dirty.
