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.

Ok, it depends on what you're after, but we LOVED South Beach. Our goal was beach, food, and shopping - and we got it all. I went with my 14-year-old and we felt safe.

We had a wonderful time at South Beach. The ArtDeco houses are wonderful. A lot of nice restaurants around and 7 km long white beach. Just perfect.

I live here and while I do enjoy the option and access to the party scene I do not partake as much as one might suspect. I enjoy South Beach for the ethnic diversity, the amazing options of outdoor events, the annual festivals, Lincoln Road (especially on Sundays) and of course the weather. My favorite times in the city are... More

The best beach Ive seen in the USA, a touch better than Venice in CA. Loved it here. Youre missing out if you don't venture down. Grab a fruit cup on your way
