South Beach or SoBe, is the über cool area of Miami that attracts the city’s beautiful people to its most gorgeous beach.
Located on the barrier island of Miami Beach that separates Biscayne Bay from the Atlantic Ocean, the area is easily accessible via various causeways from the Miami mainland. Roughly the size of 23 blocks, the district has a large collection of restaurants, clubs, boutiques, hotels and, of course, the beach. The large contingents of Europeans and Latin American visitors to South Beach have given the place a cosmopolitan feel; locals and tourists alike converse in many different languages. Expect to see surfers catching the waves, models strolling along the golden sands and even a few celebrities among the ubiquitous hipsters. Look out for the recently re-designed lifeguards stands; the colourful displays are unique to Miami. A great place to just sit and chill out, wander around the shops or enjoy lunch, SoBe is the place to head for if you’re looking to find the scene in Miami.
