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.

South Beach has its good side It is close to the beach which is nice. The kind of people who "hang out" here are mainly those who want to party all night long and sleep during the day. Coffee shops, eateries, and hotels and hostels...More

I love South Beach as it’s a beautiful spot but the only issue is that there are too many gang bangers around at night. Also mandatory %20 tip is common in most bigger restaurants. I suggest walking around before dark
