Close to the main areas near Fort Lauderdale, this nice wide beach provides numerous locations to hang out. We went on a Saturday, specifically to be able to watch the cruise ships leaving. Kids played on the beach for a nice while. In the water, digging in the sand, and playing catch. After a while, we had our picnic lunch,... More

Pier, kite surfers, good waves, good sand, easy to reach with plenty of parking on a meter. It was windy and waves were high but we had a great time. Straight

I love beaches. This one has a great reef off shore for some shallow diving. It's a federal park so no hanky panky. You can grill you can camp or launch a boat. Close to the airport you can watch the planes. Bring your sunscreen.

The beach here is sparsely attended, which is a big draw for me and my wife. There are bathroom facilities and picnic areas. Lots of parking. We like to park at the north end and stroll along the boardwalk that twists out onto the jetty framing the shipping channel on the south. We go to the end of the boardwalk... More

For $6 you get to explore a long coastal strip fronting Fort Lauderdale airport and the sea port. Sandy beacxhes give excellent swimming in warn seas with gently shelving waters. Good picnic and bathroom facilities with many parking areas. If you walk out on the Mole at the harbour mouth you can watch the gigantic cruise ships leave port late... More

The beach is very big, it does not get very crowded and on the days it does it has so many areas to go to that you are guaranteed the perfect tranquil spot every time. It is beautiful, the views are amazing, we had some real nice walks along the park; there is so much to see. There are benches,... More
