The park was empty the day we went, so we had the place to ourselves. My husband snorkeled and finally found the Jacks, which, he discovered after the fact, are marked by a stake on the beach that says "JAX." The marker is just to the right at the end of the path from Parking Lot #1. The Jacks are... More

a little of a pain to get in on weekends sometimes, the line is long {yes, there is a small fee to get in) there are ample picnic tables and of course , a great beach just outside the park is a fishing pier and restaurant.

Park claims to be "the real Florida". this is because they have removed all the imported Australian pines. Beach is nice, parking is plentiful. Cost is reasonable.

This is perfect if you're looking for a relaxing beach close to Ft Lauderdale. We enjoyed this beach on a Saturday morning in August. There is a $6 fee to enter the park. We found plenty of parking. Facilities include rest rooms and picnic tables. It's a short walk from the parking to the beach. Very convenient. The beach is... More

We went to this park/beach 2 times this past weekend and have been here several times before. If you are a diver, it's great to dive the Jacks!! There is a lot to see right along the jacks. If you go on the state park side parking is $6.00 and less crowded. If you go to the pier side it's... More

Park opens 8am, closes sunset. Park admission fees: $6 per vehicle (2 people), $4 per vehicle (single occupancy), $2 per person (pedestrian, bicyclist, extra passenger) John Lloyd Beach has one of the easiest and most interesting shore dives in the area. We were scuba diving and snorkeling from shore (parking lot #1) Reefs located along the beach approximately at the... More

Park was quiet and scenic. However, you have to pay to go in, parking was long walk to the pavilion and there were no fans in the pavilion.

This park is located on the southern side of the Port Everglades entrance accessible by car along A1A or by boat on the ICW. The beach is a nice expanse of sand stretching from shaded picnic area. On week days it's quiet and great for family picnics. If you come by boat (small boat to fit under low bridge) there... More

I love the serenity this park his to offer. I went on a weekday and there were only a few other people I shared the beach with. The downside was there was so much dried up seaweed covering the beach that my children couldn't even find a spot to build a sandcastle. It would be nice if that got cleaned... More
