BEACHES

I am from Texas and our beaches can not repair to Fort Lauderdale Beaches. In Fort Lauderdale you can see your feet in the water. Oh yes.

Very nice beach, but lots of seaweed the first couple days. Well maintained and beautiful sunsets! Great way to enjoy a little piece of Heaven! :-)

Great Beach and Tiki Bar in front of hotel. The ocean was perfect and I got a tan within an hour. It compares to the caribbean. Probably the best beach on the Atlantic in Florida.

We spend time on the Gulf beaches prior to this stop, and the beaches on the Atlantic are not as nice but more crowded. I do love being able to swim in the water, even in January.

I would go to the beach then I cleaned my feet from the sand and go into the pool. I also collect some shells from the beach.

We visit Fort Lauderdale Beach every year. We love the blue ocean and the vibe in Fort Lauderdale is more low key than Miami. There are also lots fewer people, so it is just more relaxed.

Experience was not good to to poor hotel service. The trips was disappointing due to lack of service at the Pelican Grand. There are better places to stay.
