“Not as quiet and clean,”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

as one might expect in North Beach. Water not as pristine, far fewer beach services than South Beach, no good walking trails or boardwalk or bike trail that goes very far and traffic is far closer and more obvious than the sea. Walkability is zero for snacks or drinks, and incredibly, stores and restaurants are MORE pricey than SoBe because they neighborhood is more "exclusive." Parking a nightmare and expensive, traffic awful and many main roads that end abut the beach with a curb or small sidewalk, none of the appeal of a quieter beach further north.

“Nicely Removed”
Reviewed 29 March 2013

Far from the action of South Beach and the hotels in the 40s (Fountainbleu, etc.), Surfside Beach is quiet and relaxing. There are a ton of apartment buildings nearby, but they are pretty empty most of the year.
