Watch: Miami Beach Disinvites Spring Breakers Following Last Year’s Chaos



Prime spring break destination Miami Beach is cautiously stepping into the waters this March, hoping its stern message to party-goers and rowdy youth will deter any potential trouble.

As mid-March approaches, colleges and universities nationwide gear up for the notorious break, an annual opportunity for students to hit the road and seek out an affordable beach retreat. 

Miami Beach, however, is taking a firm stance this year following the chaos of 2023 where two consecutive shootings happened in South Beach that claimed two lives, including that of a vacationing student in Miami. 

The City of Miami Beach confirmed to PEOPLE Magazine that 573 arrests were made during last year’s spring break.

A video released by the city last month bluntly warned prospective tourists about the consequences of heading to South Florida, stating, “We’re breaking up with you.” 

The campaign points to lawlessness and deadly violence as the city’s “breaking point.”

An actor in the video states, “It’s not us, it’s you,” followed by similar sentiments from other actors. “We just want different things. Our idea of a good time is relaxing on the beach, hitting up a spa, or checking out a new restaurant. You just want to get drunk in public and ignore laws… Don’t try to apologize and come crawling back. This isn’t safe. So we’re done.”


The City of Miami Beach has reiterated its plans to impose stricter rules for college students and tourists visiting in March, initially announced on Feb. 13.

Throughout the entire month, the city’s Entertainment District will enforce a flat-rate parking fee of $30 for parking garages and surface lots, doubling the towing rate in South Beach to $516, plus an additional $30 administrative fee for nonresidents. 

Limited beach access on Ocean Drive will now close at 6 p.m. and include security checkpoints and bag checks for prohibited items such as alcohol, coolers, tents, and tables. Portable speakers are also prohibited.

During the “highest-impact weekends” from March 7 to 10 and 14 to 17, all parking garages in South Beach will close from Thursday at 6 a.m. to Monday at 6 a.m., with the flat-rate parking fee increasing to $100. DUI checkpoints and License Plate Reader details will be implemented by the Miami Beach Police Department on certain streets.

Despite these new safety measures, feedback from beachgoers indicates approval, with many acknowledging the necessity for stricter measures following previous years’ chaos.

“Right now, it hasn’t been too crazy,” a Miami Beach resident said to Local 10 news. “I like all the changes they have made. I come here every year around this time. I have a condo down the street, and it is just a crazy madhouse.”

Some locals, however, doubt the city’s ability to rid itself of spring breakers so easily.

One tourist stated, “We’re like a toxic ex; you can’t break up with us.” While another defiantly declared, “We ain’t ever breaking up; we staying forever.” 

City leaders have echoed this need for enhanced safety measures, acknowledging the majority of visitors’ good behavior but recognizing the necessity of increased enforcement to handle disruptive behavior.
