  • Maybe it's because I'm older than the last time I was here, or maybe because I lived in San Diego for so long (so the beach isn't novel) but South Beach is really awful, and it wasn't this bad 13...  more »
  • Its a terrible shame but South Beach was a fantastic place to have fun for adults but it has been ruined. The decision to keep ocean drive closed down has killed the hotel and night life business...  more »
  • This was a nice beach . In November it still was warm. The water was cold but we got used to it. The waves knocked us down. The beach was clean and sunny!  more »
  • The International Zone 🤩
  • Beach! Warm turquoise water compared to the colder bluer Pacific water. Nice sand, small waves, little kelp. Umbrellas available for rent $15. along with chairs, etc. Lifeguards on duty all over. They had no fire pits!!! must be a FL thing, and for that, Cali is better 😇
  • Definitely a place to be seen. Plenty of eye candy!
  • Opportunity to enjoy summer, sun and beach in winter
  • ... Beautiful, there is nothing to add !!! 👍👌
