The location is home to many events such as the Full Moon Festival, where locals, tourists and famous DJs gather on the full moon of each month to party and dance.

Kelingking Beach in Bali, Indonesia comes second on the list with a 3,644 posts per metre. It’s one of the shortest beaches on the list at around 100 metres which sees it high up the on list with 364,410 hashtagged posts on Instagram. The beach is only accessible by boat and this exclusivity compared to other entries in the list means it’s very popular with tourists and influencers alike.

South Beach is a popular destination for holidaying students, celebrities, tourists, and locals and holds several events across the year such as the Memorial Day Weekend’s Urban Beach Week and The Food Network’s Wine and Food Festival.
