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.

If you ever go so Miami, you got to walk over Ocean Drive. Is a very picturesque area, with the Art Deco designed Buildings, which by the way are very colorful with its neon light after sundown ! There are a lot of classic stops...More

Yeah,it’s long and pretty, but I’ve seen nicer beaches. It’s crowded and parking sucks. Just to many people around. I guess it would be good for people watching. Swimming wasn’t an option with all the seaweed. Would recommend if your there for the sun.

Spent a day here, it was a rainy day when there, but still would come back. I’m not sure if it is necessarily a family oriented beach.
