The Beach Guide

Fort Lauderdale Beach

Fort Lauderdale beach is a beautiful stretch of white sand that runs alongside the crystal clear blue waters of the ocean. It is quieter than Miami, with more of a family-friendly feel than a wild college party destination. The promenade that runs behind the beach is lined with palm trees and there is always plenty going on.

This beach at Fort Lauderdale is clean with generally calm waters that are safe for kids. Also it’s a big enough beach that even in the middle of the summer you won’t have a problem finding a spot. You can rent equipment for water sports from the promenade, or even a lounger if you just want to relax on the beach. When you fancy a break from the beach enjoy a walk down the promenade and see what’s in all the shops. You can eat at any of the local spots that line the beach.

There is lots of parking near the beach, but you have to pay an hourly fee. There are also bus stops, and you can take the bus to and from your hotel. There are a few hotels in walking distance, including the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort and the Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach.

If you are looking for an excursion, Fort Lauderdale is an ideal starting point for a tour of the Everglades. You can take a ride in an Airboat and see the incredible wildlife. Alternatively, why not enjoy downtown and Las Olas Boulevard with its art exhibitions and concerts.
