How am I not surprised that South Beach would make it to the Travel Channel's "World's Sexiest Beaches" list? South Beach is HOT! from bodies, to clubs, restaurants and talk about eye candy no matter what your thing is! I love my what I do, selling Miami Beach Real Estate in a place like this is amazing and wouldn't change it for the world. The diverse culture and perfect weather all year round will satisfy the pickiest person (unless you are into North Pole weather, of course.....don't dare step foot on South Beach).
