For those of us who have watched the Elvis movies in our youth this beach is like our wildest dreams come alive. The clear water, the golden sand, the promenade, the continuing stream of people and the continuous activity. Great for people watching while you grab a bite from any of the many cafes and eating places along the promenade.

I always go to Las Olas Beach when I am in Fort Lauderdale and it is far more enjoyable than Miami Beach. I have more privacy and I find the bars and restaurants around that area much more affordable.

I loved the beach. It was right out the back of the hotel. Chairs were available and there was plenty for all.

Nice and Clean, during the week it is less crowded with more parking. Great restaurants within walking distance.

Visited five days. Crystal clear warm water. Enjoyed going farther north by a park which was more private. There are lifeguards but no Boardwalk or shops.

This narrow stretch of sand is perfect for a weekend getaway or a staycation! Warm crystal-clear water and good accommodations with fine dining await. Lifeguards on duty!

We loved this beach! Warm and clear water, clean, and plenty of sand to go around. A little short on Restrooms, but we found one in a Plaza/mall across the street. Bring an umbrella, since there was no shade otherwise.

We absolutely love this place. We have been staying here for many yrs. The staff is always very accommodating, friendly and the rooms are kept very clean. We love the fact that everything is walking distance; whether its shopping, dining or dancing you are looking for. Parking is always free and the beach is across the street...did I mention they...

Went to a few beaches in the Ft. Lauderdale area really nice! Can be a bit pricy to rent the umbrella and lounge chairs on the beaches,especially as a family with kids. I would advise u to bring your own (if u can) the sun can get quite hot!!! Be aware of the time for renting(I think it's 4 hours).... More
