A different beach experience here than in the VI for sure. As you can see the beaches go on forever and they are very crowded. Yesterday we drove down to South Beach, of art deco fame and it was packed even on a Monday. Technically a beach is a beach to the kids. Is the water warm. Check. Are there waves to get knocked around in? Check. Is the sand fine enough to build, dig, draw in? Check. We had a great time - playing and people watching as you should do while in South Beach.
