My family and I stayed in ft Lauderdale for 2 nights before our cruise and decided to check out the beach down the road. The beach was easy to get to and beautiful!!! The water was clear. The beach was clear of debris and really clean. Usually beaches we have been to aren't this clean being a public beach but... More

there are many pretty beaches in Fort Lauderdale area, I find this beach very touristy and too crowded and loud, go a little further up, "Boynton Beach" Atlantic or Down a bit to "Delray" beach area and enjoy a more quite beach, less traffic and young adults, and get more family atmosphere, It's my honest opinion and I'm sticking to...

The reef at some laces is just right off shore, hardly any coral however nice puffer fish lumbering around and hardly have to swim at all. Parking is a pain.

This is one of the broader beaches I have seen. Takes a bit to reach the water but the sand is pristine. Benches and tables are everywhere and make for a great experience. Don't forget to feed the meters however as the parking only looks free..

This local feels It's a great beach so much to do and plenty of places to eat and enjoy. The atmosphere is fun! Bring plenty of water is you staying on the beach. You can rent umbrellas and chairs if you don't have your own.

Being a busy mom, I don't get a lot of me time to get to one of my favorite places, the Beach. I work by the beach and so it's always calling my name. I went to Ft. Lauderdale Beach recently because that's where I go when I need a little sun and a little action. Ft. Lauderdale beach is... More

My sister and I visited for 4 days but had the most fun. If you are planning to go to Miami, don't! I have been in Miami before but I wouldn't trade the experience I had here. Very safe area. Hotels are great. A lot of tourists. Many restaurants and cafes in the area. Very popular place. I recommend it... More

A very nice beach with lots of sand, sun and food. Plenty of nightlife when the sun goes down. What more do you need.
