Dirty, sand not cleaned like they do on So Beach or North Miami Beach. Not a lot of actual beach so everyone crowded one on top of the other.

Would be better if all the bums, drunks and drug addicts were not around - but that's what happens when I bring my family to the beach....

Hollywood Beach is definitely one of the better beaches in South Florida. The broad-walk which went thru major renovations is truly a work of art with it's decorative walls. There are plenty of restaurants along the broad-walk to satisfy your individual culinary desires. On a hot day with tropical breezes rolling in you will enjoy your day at the beach.... More

This is what South Fla. beaches use to be.. Beautiful , safe beach , wide white sand lots of public bathrooms and funky little beach front bars and restaurants ..so different than Fort Lauderdale to the north or Miami to the south. Alas this will soon stop being a hidden Gem...they are building a HUGE Margaretville resort right in the... More

We are big fans of Virginia Beach so when we say that Hollywood beach had a broadwalk we were excited. When we go there I guess we didn't realize the broadwalk only had small motels, and mom and pop rentals, and few shops and local restaurants. There was not a lot to do. Though we found a few good places... More

My favorite beach in Florida. The sand is clean and soft, the ocean clean, and even a few rules for the roller bladers and bicyclists, so we all can share the boardwalk peacefully. What more could you ask? Can't really thing of anything I really disliked.

The 3-mile "broadwalk" stretch is very nice. Not motorized traffic permitted which makes it nice for strolling with children, walking a dog or going for a run. Plenty of parking options as well.

There are so many beaches in Florida that I find it hard to really differentiate that much between them. The sand and whatnot is of course beautiful, but what makes Hollywood beach distinctive isn't that so much as the area around it. The shops and the restaurants - both categories of which are undergoing upgrades right now (Jimmy Buffet's Margeritaville... More
