Owner description: 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.

“Nice beach but atmosphere a little stuck up”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

Beach better than St. Pete's, but atmosphere is much more sophisticated (see and be seen, not as laid back). While a great beach by American standards, does not match up to the sugary sand, warm waters, or turquoise seas of the Mexican Caribbean

“Restaurant after restaurant after restaurant after restaurant.....”
Reviewed 11 March 2012

On Ocean Drive, it is just one restaurant after another for 10 blocks. Good news: plenty of variety and competition for your dining dollar. Bad news: restaurant hockers constantly selling you "happy hour" this or "dinner special" that as you walk the gauntlet of restaurant row.

“I can meet the world here.”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

Everyone goes to South Beach. There are numerous countries and cultures represented on the beach on any given day. The breeze is spectacular and the waters are warm.
