La Martina Miami Beach Polo World Cup, produced by ACT Productions, returned to its sandy stadium April 25 to 28 at Collins Park Beach in Miami Beach. While some spectators watched matches in their bikinis and swim trunks from the beach, others stayed in the V.I.P. tents from EventStar, where sole liquor sponsor Grey Goose served polo-themed cocktails. Catering came from several local vendors including the new Italian restaurant Gold & Pepper, Baoli, Spartico, Fogo de Chão, and Doma Polo.

In addition to the polo matches, the weekend included a fashion show and several parties and receptions at South Beach hotels.

Here's a look at the beachy scene at this year's tournament.
