Top 10 Beachfront Hotels in South Beach

Beachfront Hotels In South Beach: The Nautilus

Two fabulous miles of beach line the eastern shore of South Beach offering some amazing hotels for the ultimate splurge.

However, not all hotels that bill themselves as oceanfront will be directly on the beach. Hotels on Ocean Drive between 5th and 15th Streets face the ocean-front Lummus Park, so although the hotels technically enjoy "ocean views" they are NOT on the beach. You will have to cross Ocean Drive and a nice short stroll through the park to get to your surf and sand. This may not necessarily be a deal breaker, specially if you want to stay in the heart of the action, and if so, check our top hotel picks in Ocean Drive.

True Beachfront hotels in South Beach will be either south of Fifth Street or north of 15th Street.

For hotels South of Fifth (SoFi) with direct beach access consider the Miami South Beach Hotels MapHilton Bentley and the Miami South Beach Hotels MapMarriott Stanton. This area is a considerably quieter neighborhood and very convenient to South Pointe Park at the very tip.

The next batch of beachfront hotels north of Lummus Park will also be very convenient to the hustle and bustle of Ocean Drive and offer proximity to Lincoln Road Mall's endless shops and restaurants, top picks here include: Miami South Beach Hotels MapThe Loews Miami Beach Hotel, a sprawling South Beach resort, Miami South Beach Hotels MapThe National, Miami South Beach Hotels MapThe Shelborne, and Miami South Beach Hotels MapNautilus South Beach a SIXTY Hotel, all newly restored Art Deco historical relics, and Miami South Beach Hotels MapThe Shore Club with its very lively vibe.

As you move further north of 20th Street, some more superb waterfront options still close enough to the South Beach action though closer to refined Mid-Beach are Miami South Beach Hotels MapThe Setai, Miami South Beach Hotels MapThe W South Beach, and Miami South Beach Hotels Map1 Hotel South Beach, with three very different styles.

Please be aware of the many extra fees you may encounter and check what is included in your quoted rate. Most hotels charge a "Resort Fee" which can run from $20 - $40 per day extra and cover things like beach chairs and umbrellas (yes, seriously, whether you use them or not). Parking and valet services can tack on an extra $35-$50 per day.
