Welcome to South Beach, Miami!

March 26, 2013 | By |

n both daytime and at nightfall, the South Beach section of Miami Beach is a major entertainment destination with hundreds of nightclubs,restaurantsboutiques and hotels. The area is popular with both American and international tourists (mainly from CanadaLatin America,EuropeIsraelthe Caribbean and within the United States), with some having permanent or second homes. The large number of Europeantourists also explains their influence on South Beach’s lax and overall tolerance of the female monokini, aka topless sunbathing, despite it being a public beach.

The reflection of South Beach’s residents is evident in the various European languages, as well as Semitic languages and many otherlanguages spoken. In 2000, 55% of residents of the city of Miami Beach spoke Spanish as a first language, while English was the first language for 33% of the population. Portuguese (mainly Brazilian Portuguese) was spoken by 3% of residents, while French (includingCanadian French) was spoken by 2%, German by 1.12%, Italian 0.99%, and Russian by 0.85% of the population. Owing to the area’s largeJewish and Israeli community, Yiddish was spoken by 0.81% of residents, and Hebrew by 0.74%.[11]

Another unique aesthetic attribute of South Beach is the presence of several colorful and unique stands used by South Beach’s lifeguards. After Hurricane Andrew, Architect William Lane donated his design services to the city and added new stops on design tours in the form of lifeguard towers. His towers instantly became symbols of the revived City of Miami Beach.

March 24, 2013 | By |

Yes there is surfing in South Beach, even though it is not as popular as other places around the world, reason being that for the most part we don’t have a constant stream of high waves to make the really good surfers happy; It is a perfect place for beginners to take lessons and get a feel of the adventure and thrill that comes in riding waves, introducing you to what could be your desire to go on a surf trip to places like Maui in Hawaii where surfing is serious and don’t stop, plus competition tournaments are done very often.
