    Default Can I drink beer on the beach?

    My wife and i will be heading down to south miami beach the middle of july, i was wondering what the law is taking beer on the beach. Most beaches i've been to prohibit glass bottles but permit cans. is this the case with south miami? I'm nota big drinker but i enjoy a few cold beer on the beach.

    The law prohibits alcohol on the beach... however, if you are being cool with just you and your wife and a cooler, you will have no trouble having beer. Pour it into a non descript cup and you'll be fine. I've sat on the beach with a full on 6 pack with friends and we've been fine. Just keep it out of sight.

    Yea as long as you arent acting stupid the cops/lifeguards wont mess with you. Especially since you are older, ive only seen them mess with kids who look like they could be underage.

    Last time I wa at SeBe, I chatted with an officer in her truck overseeing a model shoot at South Pointe. Had a can of Modelo in my hand the whole time and she didn't care.

    In Miami, the laws are just suggestions.
