We were seing the Artdeco area. This is very nice. Ocean Drive where the Art-Deco block begins seems to be the party and redlight district. But it a funny experience to see the people there.

Ocean drive is famous for it's restaurants and bars but beware, they can scam you and overcharge. In the night is pretty to walk because of all the lights, during winter very overcrowded!

The part of the beach we visited was steps away from Big Pink. It was not crowded and had chairs and umbrellas for purchase. There was a restroom nearby, a playground and bikes for rent.

I’m not really a beach person, but if you like them, you’ll probably like South Beach. It’s big! Our hotel resort tax included use of sun loungers etc. in a specific location earmarked for hotel residents. Because of the size of the beach, and the...More

South Beach is not what I expected. It was just a bunch of people parading themselves up and down the strip. I expected it to be filled with fashion, classy, and artsy. It was none of the above. We ventured off the strip and found...More

You do not need to book a tour to go to the beach. The beach is free. Just bring what you would normally bring to spend a day at the beach ie; towel, sunscreen, snacks, chair if you have a one but not necessary. You can just... More
