    To enjoy a day in South Beach I highly recommend renting a Deco Bike or a beach cruiser at Miami Beach Bicycle Center on 5th St. and ride down the beach's bike path.

    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

    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.

    So many different fabulous walks of life, have a good time and enjoy the amazing sights (especially at night when everything is lit up like a Christmas tree). Simply put, South beach is so sexy!

    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.

    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

    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!

    No trip to Miami could be complete without going here. Sun, sand, surf, and beautiful bodies grace its shores all year. Check out the World Erotic Art Museum and the famous Joe's Stone Crab lime pie.

    Go in the crystal-clear warm water, enjoy relaxing on the beach, or ride a bike along the oceanfront! South Beach is probably the most famous and best thing to do in Miami!

    It's hard to go wrong at South Beach daytime for the beautiful sandy white beach with clear sea water nighttime for swinging wide open clubs many with a Latin flavor.

    You're in Miami, B****. This is where LeBron brought his talent, Dexter hunts for bad guys, and Michael from Burn Notice hangs out. But seriously, it is a great but crowded beach with excellent food

    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.

    Sit back and relax letting the ocean waves calm you and bring you peace when peace is what you need. And remember to play with the ocean waves or go swimming if you have a swimsuit!

    Watch out for Portuguese Man o' War. I just got stung and it's not fun. If you do get stung the super nice life guards will put some vinegar on you to help neutralize it though.

    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.

    Just as great a beach at night.. breeze from the ocean, soft, cool sand under your feet, with lights come from Ocean Drive and any party boats out at sea.

    Best local uncrowded beach plan: park in public meter lot one block down, grab cold beers, water and practically anything else (bros has a lot!) and head to the beach @ 26th st. Quiet- local crowd!

    Great hotel for the price, only $100-$120 a night. Just steps to the public beach. Jet skiing was quite expensive but they are always willing to make a deal.

    Beautiful powdery sand, warm water, skating and bike path and minutes from really great eats. If you stay alert, a great place for celebrity-spotting.

    Make sure you walk Lincoln Road and the secret gem in SoBe: the Pier in the southern most point... very nice and quiet landmark.

    Try to stay south of 5th Street if you are heading to the beach... Too many tourists. When you're done at the beach, stop by Nikki Beach Club & get a pitcher of strawberry Sagatiba Caipirinhas.

    This part of the beach is right by Wet Willies. Bring something to lie on and forgo the astronomical price to rent a beach chair
