SOUTH BEACH - Miami Beach - USA

SOUTH BEACH – Miami Beach – USA

Unavoidable and known around the world, the famous and huge beach of Miami Beach is bustling all year. I love going for a run every morning when I go there, taking a walk on Ocean Drive, which runs along the beach or go swimming in the party atmosphere. The peculiarity of this beach is of course the many colorful lifeguard cabins along the beach.
