White sand

Clean, white sandy beach with a unique back drop of Art Deco buildings. It was peaceful to relax by the water on a beautiful, sunny day.

Walk the beach. Explore the Art Deco neighborhood. Gawk at the amazing cars new and old. Swim and sun and stroll.

While some can say a beach is a beach, this one is beautiful. It is very clean and manicured as they say. Very little trash. In fact I seen more trash/butts on Fort Lauderdale Beach this trip than here. The people are locals as well as tourists. It is a good place to stretch out and relax for the day... More

It is a part of Miami Beach near South Beach. My dad used to work here. It has aqua-blue waters and white sand.

Really liked this beach. The chairs and towels are expensive. The Boucher brothers own this hotel but it is perfect if you want a more lively beach scene

Nice sand, sun and sea - what more you need? The beach was clean, chairs and umbrellas available - free i think.

The water was a beautiful blue. There was a large beach so that you can be as near to or as far from the water as you would like. There were also a lot of shells to collect. Beach was very clean.

What can you say about the beach on south Beach. Wonderful. The beach at 12th street. There are chairs and umbrellas to rent. Food stands to get food. And of course beautiful sand and the crystal clear warm waters of the beach. This part of the beach can have a larger gay population but not always. Most times the water... More
