Nice soft sand. Area around beach is lively. Lots of restaurants and bars. You could easily spend a whole day there and still want to come back.

We were able to use Hilton chairs for free because the pool was closed. Clean beach with nice size waves.

Water is warm. Beach chairs/umbrella rentals are plentiful. Pretty clean sand in most areas. There was some trash left on beach but I think it was due to the concert the weekend before I got there.

nice calm ocean, beautiful sunrise, soft sand. the sounds of the surf are relaxing. Shops are only a few footsteps away. Too many cigarette buts and bottle caps

excellent sand , good swimming, the depth increases slowly. The rent for an umbrela is high ($20). The sand is clean as the city grooms it every morning.

We loved Fort Lauderdale Beach. Its so beautiful, and lots to do. The beach goes for mikes, and is so perfect. We loved having a meal at one of the many cafes overlooking the beach. You can swim, sunbake, bicycle, walk jog, play volleyball, shop, ride the sun trolley or just sit and relax. Beautiful.

I visited FLL for few days in March - I visited the beach three times - at first the beach is definitely not maintained as well as South Beach (cheap version of South B.), good thing is it means less crowded. But the problem is the insufficient amount of parking spots - one day we came back from shopping and... More

Reminds me of South Beach, but with less people. The beach is nice & there's a lot of eateries and bars. Would definitely recommend!

We Canadians will take any beach over piles of dirty, slushy spring snow any time but Ft. Lauderdale should be able to please everyone. Cross the street and you'll find lots of restaurants and tourist shops when you need a break from sitting on the hot sand.

Great beach to hang out during your vacation... Water is great with very little stones and rocks... I particularly like this beach because the waves are not too rough like some other beach.. Most of the people around Las Olas area are a younger crowd, so go farther north for a diverse group...
