Fort Lauderdale beach is basically from 17th street to Sunrise boulevard. From 17th to Las Olas is very family oriented. From Las Olas to Beach Place is more for young party people. Beach place north is a lot of hotel guests and around Sunrise boulevard is mostly gay. So there is a spot for everyone! Parking is tough after 1... More

Large beautiful beach and just minutes from some great restaurants and shopping. I find the Ft. Lauderdale beach to be similar to Miami Beach and less crowded.

Decent beach, not too great. Not many places to shop. Strong waves, not as pretty as many other beaches.

Beautiful, clean and well maintained beach. The weather was uncharacteristically cold while we stayed, but we still managed to get some beach time and soak in the ocean a bit. The water is crystal clear and absolutely stunning.

We always enjoy strolling down the beach when we are on vacation. We also like trying new restaurants. But check trip advisor first! Restaurants turn over quickly and quality and service can very.

I prefer the west coast beaches in Florida but I think all of our beaches are pretty good. The moon is beautiful.

It's a beautiful beach, however; there are no public restrooms on the beach so you either have to walk to a restroom across the street or I guess the ocean??? Beach chairs are $12. Per person per day The beach is lively, lovely and clean I still wonder is there pollution because of the lack of facilities?

Came here twice this week and both days it was excessively windy. The water was really choppy and no one was swimming..disappointing..There were beach chairs available and umbrellas..but at a $12 rental fee for each, and they had to be vacated before 4:30. It's a nice beach, just wish the water and wind were calmer

The beach is quite wide, which is nice. some of it is quite dirty, bottle caps, garbage and such. Some of it is also private. Obviously if you are walking you can continue but some of the resorts don't let you on their beach. Waves and rip tides can be quite hazardous.
