    Visit South Beach before 10 a.m., while the usual crowd sleeps off the events of the previous night. It’s worth making the trip on a rainy day, to see water and sky interlock in a horizonless sheet.

    Fine white sand and clear water. The beach you want to be in if you want to be in the center of it all. Then visit oceandrive strip and ENJOY

    I love Miami Beach. White sand, clear teal waters, art & Art Deco, great food, and an international city full of people from all over the world.

    if you're between rainbow flags, don't be surprised if you see men hugged up in the water. either smile and deal, or move to another section. Umbrella is a must. Chairs optional- be one with the sand!

    Soak up the sun on one of the world's most famous beaches with plenty of eye candy to go around. Start your day with eggs benedict from News Cafe, and end it with a drink at Wet Willie's.

    Beautiful walk along the beach, ideal for runners and skaters. Watch out for coconuts dropping. Get to Ocean Drive for open air gyms perfect for calisthenics. I had the time of my life

    South Beach enjoys sun-kissed fashion outlets, cutting edge restaurants and the coolest architecture on the coast. Savour your walk around. It’s like starring in your own film set.

    For quiet along with peace, come to the beach after 4pm. But if you like being around a large quantity of people then the time I am here now (it is about 3pm) is good.
