While a lot of it has to do with that whole carefree vibe you get from living in Miami, the reason we're always walking around half naked and tanned is because of all the kick ass pool parties we're able to crash — especially on South Beach. Yes, it's a bit of a tourist trap, but every Miamian has a soft spot for South Beach, even if they don't admit it.
So, when next time you feel like crossing the bridge and getting wet, keep in mind these ten best pool party spots on South Beach. Now go and get your splash on.

10. Highbar at Dream Hotel South Beach, 1111 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-673-4747.
Located on the rooftop of the Dream Hotel, Highbar was the spot where Red Bull hosted its 2013 Guest House during Winter Music Conference, and a slew of other memorable WMC parties have taken place there over the years. The infinity

9. Shore Club Hotel, 1901 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-695-3100.
One of the biggest dilemma's you'll encounter at the Shore Club is deciding which of the two elevated-edge infinity pools to dive into first. Well, the answer is based on the type of person you are. If you're more of a laid back lounger, you'll likely pick the pool that's closest to the hotel. Surrounded by lounge chairs and colorful, Moroccan-inspired beds, the vibe screams relaxation.

It's 7,000-square-feet which means it has the capacity to hold tons of excited sun worshipers looking for some fun. It's free and anybody can attend, but if you wanna lock in a cabana or daybed, you're better off reserving your spot ahead of time. And when hunger strikes, you can always grab a tasty bite at Bianca, the Delano's indoor/outdoor restaurant which happens to be steps away from the pool. The Delano will be throwing no shortage of pool parties this Miami Music Week too.

6. Surfcomber Hotel, 1717 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-532-7715.
The Surfcomber is where hardcore party animals hang. We're not saying that because of all of the insane Miami Music Week bashes that go down every March, or the super exclusive Art Basel parties that happened there back in December, but because of the herd of cows and sheep that roam the poolside pasture. Overlooking the swimming pool, directly across the pool fountain, is where Lola, Brandy, and the rest of the tanned cows of the Surfcomber like to graze.Next Page
