We didn't spend anytime sitting on the beach but I did get to walk a long portion of it from where the 17th Street Causeway meets the beach north to Terramar Street, about halfway between Las Olas Blvd. and Sunrise Blvd., where the Fort Lauderdale Rough Water Swim race started. You can either walk on a sidewalk the whole way or you can walk along the beach. It was early in the day when I walked it so we didn't see a lot of people but I'm guessing it gets more crowded as the day goes on. Lots of shops, restaurants and hotels along the beach which stretches the length of Fort Lauderdale.
fort lauderdale beach is located along a section of US A1A . along the beach are numerous hotels. bars, cafes, and restaurants. there is metered parking at the intersection of las olas & US A1A or north of sunrise blvd on A1A. a very nice place to visit when in south florida.
The City takes pretty good care of the beach, they have basketball courts and keep the beach pretty clean. The one drawback is parking, they have plenty, but the gate operators are amazingly slow. I waited 45 minutes to get in, so get there early. You might be better off taking the bus or a cab, especially if you plan to visit one of the many bars near the beach.
you can't go here and not spend time at the beach. Right off A1A, and lined with shops, bars, restaurants. The City does a good job of keeping the beach clean. Police always patrol the strip so it is fairly safe at any hour. It is always a fun time.
We did hit that beach every day of our 3 days there. After heading there early on the first 2 days, we waited until after lunch on our last day as we were starting to get a little "cripsy"...
The water was warm enough to swim in and had a beautiful green hue along the coastline. The waves were also really good for most of the time. What more could we have hoped for?
The beaches with tiny white sand are calling us. Located right on main road A1A. You can seet for hours in serenity watching the gentle waves, big cruise ships, little sail boats, and feel the ocean breeze.
More restaurants than you can find the time to eat at.
You have to go to the beach in Fort Lauderdale. And there’s so much of it to choose from. Pick a spot and plant yourself for the afternoon with a good book and some beer, just hide it from the lifeguard ;) Or just walk for hours like I did admiring the scenery.
Fort Lauderdale beach is the most popular beach in Fort Lauderdale.It is about 23 miles. When we went there it was spring break, so there were many students there. Just along the beach there are many restaurants,stores and clubs etc...
If you're anywhere in South Florida you have to take advantage of the warm climate and the endless beaches. If you haven't tried watersports before this is the time to do it. Try anything from jet-skiing to ocean kayaking and I'll guarantee you'll have fun.
It was a a short drive to Fort Lauderdale beach. I was so excited to go...though by myself. Maybe for some people the ocean is no big deal but for a Mid-Westerner? Well flat land is what we usually get to see! I must admit that I am DEATHLY afraid of the ocean...you couldn't drag me in to save your life but I think its so incredible to look at. The ocean just amazes me because it is another reminder of God's wonder!
