Forget the old image of a beach loaded with college kids on Spring Break....that's long gone due to strictly enforced rules. This beach has beautiful sand, great water and fantastic views!

Coming from the west coast it was hard to grasp the beaches on the east. They are not as clean over here but did find Ft. Lauderdale beach was very clean.

I've been coming to this beach since I was a kid and always return excited to see what has changed and what remains. The best parts are always here! Extensive sun, sandy beach in all directions, nice walkway for jogging or walking and then there's the people watching. You will see all sorts of regular folks and lots of strange... More

The beach was beautiful. The lounge chairs and umbrellas expensive. There were a few inconsiderate people playing music too loudly; but, overall, not too many "idiots" considering how many people were on the beach.

I love this beach, even more than the South Beach in Miami. It's more intimate with the family coziness.

I love going down to Las Olas beach and I walk down thru the shops there, my favorite place to window shop and shop. They have really nice art shops to view in and a cute sterling shop for your rings and necklaces for taking back home.

What makes this beach unique is that you can walk along the street and nothing is in between you and the water except sand.

This beach is very pretty. I wish there was a little more of it especially when it is high tide. Low tide is not to bad. Overall it was not that crowded and plenty of room for everyone.
