Great view, very clean for an urban beach. The bathroom is nearby - but the one at the Starbucks is closer. Buy something and get the code of the day. Lots of gulls - and they can be aggressive.

The City of Miami has made sure that these beaches are pristine, with clean public restrooms available. There are trash cans for recycling as well as for trash right on the beaches to keep them that way. Bravo, City of Miami!!!

We love coming to South Beach. The beach is clean and well maintained. Life guards stations are bright and plentiful. lots and lots of sand for walking, or just sitting and people watching. Water is beautiful! The bathroom facilites are clean and well maintained.

Great expansive beach, so great that it seldom seems crowded. Huge amounts of sand and sea, great for taking the sun and swimming. Easy access from the city.

There is really nothing special about Miami beach, it's a beach hanging on to the side of a huge city, fairly commercial with chairs and umbrellas for rent. Crowd watching, however, is really interesting

Hey, I've been there in September and then it was really hot. I have no idea what it feels like now or in which way that can have an impact on the exhibits.
