Most people lump Miami and Miami Beach together, but in fact they are two separate municipalities. Miami Beach is located on a barrier island that is east of Miami and Biscayne Bay. The area is famous for its resorts and spring break party scene. Although some of the best parties are during the spring break season, you'll find a great nightlife scene here year around.
South Beach is one of the most famous districts in Miami Beach. It runs from South Pointe Park to 23rd Street and it has an impressive cultural scene that is most apparent in the Art Deco District along Ocean Drive.
Many people head to Miami Beach to party, and if you're on a budget a hostel might offer you the best value. Hostels also have a lively atmosphere and a social setting where it's easy to meet other backpackers and young travelers.
A great party hostel for backpackers and young travellers.
