All reviews across the street life guards warm water lauderdale beach white sand on duty spring break palm trees lots of restaurants people watching south florida las olas fish lifeguards seaweed waves a1a
This beach is very wide and is well groomed. There is a lovely sidewalk that runs the length for strolls. Across the street you have a string of restaurants, hotels, and bars. Very relaxed, middle to upper class touristy area that feels safe.
Beautiful place to walk around. In the early hours of the morning the place isn’t crowded and I got a nice swim. Water was delicious. Lots of place to eat or have coffee. I am an early riser. The sunrise is a truly awesome experience.
we stopped here to get a sample of the sand has a keepsake of all the beaches we've visited, the sand was warm to the feet and the water was a little cool, the lifeguard shacks were quite spread out in my opinion, the views...More
I moved away due to my marriage. However, I just love coming home and watching the Sunrise every morning.... I give thanks to my higher power every Sunrise for giving me the blessing of growing up in one of the most beautiful places on earth!

Being a Miami native and having lived in Ft. lauderdale for 30 yrs, I can say that the storms when we lived there were usually in the afternoon and did not last long. In fact you could almost set your watch by their predictability. I lived on Las Olas Blvd, very near the beach and could see the storms over the ocean. The rain was very heavy most of the time, but passed quickly. Then the sun would come out along with the high humidity usually in the 90% range. That was the weather pattern in the summer. The one thing you need to be cautious of is lighting. Florida is the lightning capital of the US. Read up on the precautions you should take. The beach is dangerous in a storm. Also, keep informed about hurricanes. Mid August is the height of hurricane season, but they can hit anytime during the season June to Dec. You must be prepared if an evacuation is ordered. Take plenty of sunscreen and use it religiously. If you don’t mind heat and humidity you should be fine.
My family will be traveling to the Fort Lauderdale area the week after Easter. I've read online that Fort Lauderdale does not allow the setup of three-sided sun shelters or beach tents on their beaches. Is this true? I am traveling with my two young daughters and would like to bring our three-sided sun shelter to have some shade throughout the day. Are there other beaches in the area that allow you to setup small shade shelters? Also where are the best places to park for Fort Lauderdale...More

I don't know if they are legal, but wind can be strong at the beach and blow shelters down. I've seen umbrellas cartwheeling down the beach. Spirit

Worth driving to Fort Lauderdale beach? (4 Replies)
We're here for 3 more days & so far we've gone twice to the beach in Sunny Isles, near Marco Polo hotel. My husband wants to go to the beach in Fort Lauderdale. We have a car and waze shows a half hour drive without traffic. I'm just worried about being stuck in traffic on the way back. Is the beach in Fort Lauderdale worth the drive? Anything else worth seeing there? Thanks in advance!

Las Olas Blvd used to be my spot back in the day. It is worth going to if you want to be on the boardwalk there.
