South Beach vacation rentals

South Beach knows how to party

South Beach has been drawing mojito drinkers and cigar smokers, late-night revelers and daytime sunbathers to its cotton-white shores since it was catapulted to the forefront of Floridian tourism in the 1920s. These days, it still pulses with the same hedonistic vibes, and hosts 1000s of sleepless partiers from summer to winter between the neon-lit clubs and rumba bars of Ocean Drive. South Beach vacation rentals are precisely the sort of OTT hubs you'd expect to find in these parts, complete with open balconies and quirky interior design, all just a stone's throw from the throbbing strips.

Nocturnal life pulses in South Beach

No trip to South Beach is complete without sampling the town's pulsing nightlife. Prep with a visit to a local spa, beautify yourself at one of the chic saloons, and then hit the strips of South Beach and Washington Avenue. There, pulsing R&B mingles with Cuban rumba, beach clubs spill onto terraces above the lapping Atlantic waves, and A-listers can often be seen hopping between the cocktail dives – usually by limo. But it's not all party, party, party. You can also launch art walks and memorial visits from your South Beach vacation rental.

South Beach shines in the daytime, too

Don't give up on South Beach during the daytime. No matter how hard the hangover, it's worth sizzling it off along the Atlantic sands. The beautiful Art Deco District on Ocean Drive is one reason why, what with its 1920s facades and elegant old hotels. The Casa Casuarina sits in the middle of that, marking the spot where Gianni Versace was murdered back in 1997. Meanwhile, the Bass Museum of Art packs in masterworks by Dürer and touring exhibits with the likes of Picasso, and the Jewish Museum of Florida is a truly enlightening way to learn about the town's multicultural heritage.

Consider Christmas in the sun on South Beach

South Beach is known as one of Florida's top winter sun destinations. Long, dry days where the mercury levels hover somewhere between the 70s and 80s are common right throughout the festive period. Booking South Beach vacation rentals close to the beach in the spring is also a popular choice, while those looking for a quieter break could consider a winter trip here.

Enjoy life out on the ocean in South Beach

Nestled between the sweeping Atlantic and the waters of Biscayne Bay, South Beach could be called Miami's springboard into the ocean. Sunrises shimmer and shine across the open waves here, heralding in days of boating, wave riding, windsurfing, and seeking out dolphin pods nearby. To the south, the tropical lands of the Florida Keys take over, hosting patchworks of coral reefs, swaying palm trees, rare Caribbean manatees, and other curious marine creatures to boot.
