Nice beach and beautiful sunset.

The Fort Lauderdale beach is enjoyable and relaxing! The water isn't too rough where it sweeps you off your feet. The sand is a little harder though, compared to South Beach... read more

The Fort Lauderdale beach is enjoyable and relaxing! The water isn't too rough where it sweeps you off your feet. The sand is a little harder though, compared to South Beach Miami's sand. But I still had a good time! Sunsets were amazing and we even got to see some cruiseships sail by! I would recommend you visiting it!

The beach is not wide, but it is clean. City maintenance crews regularly run their sand-cleaning heavy equipment up and down the beach shortly after sunrise. The water is clean, good for swimming and wading. Shops and hotels are within short walking distance. And I enjoy just driving along the beach when I'm going someplace else. I never get tired...

The beach in Ft. Lauderdale is one of the best in the world, in my opinion. Clear, warm water, beautiful sand, never overly crowded, and the best part is that it's in walking distance to our Ft. Lauderdale home. Let's hope the city fathers don't ruin the city by overbuilding! The beach is a jewel that must be maintained.

I prefer this beach to South Beach: much more space, water is just as clear and warm, and parking is more reasonable. I did a lot more relaxing here than at SoBe.

I don't know where to start.. The only people who would NOT love it are those who don't like the beach (but you can go west about 15 or 20 minutes and you are away from the beach) Great food. I love LuLu's (on the beach). BEST fish taco's EVER if you like spicy! Motels are a bit pricy but... More
