We added on a few days in Ft Lauderdale before heading to the keys. The beach here is beautiful. Crowds were not too bad this time of year. Our first venture to a big city since COVID and was a little nervous about what to expect. About 80% of the people are wearing masks while out and about. The resorts and restaurants do seem to be enforcing it in their facilities. The restaurants get booked so would recommend you make reservations in advance.

Fort Lauderdale owes me nothing! Was a little skeptical about the beach being full of seaweed as told by hotel staff. However when we got there it was clean and beautiful! Being from the Virgin Islands, we can be beach snobs!😊 I'm glad the hotel staff was wrong. Was just like home, clean clear to the bottom and warm...once I got in.

My only downfall was the prices for the blue beach chairs and umbrellas. $18 per chair and $25 for the umbrella ($61 total) is a BIT excessive for me and all the other folks who brought their own stuff. We were surprised with the cost, as there was no attendant when we arrived and for an hour after we were enjoying ourselves. There were also no signs posted regarding the cost. We still had a great time tho. I'd go back...with my tools tho!😉.

This beach isn’t very deep, from the street to the water, but it was ok. The sand is a bit coarse and the beach was quite full, considering it’s smallish size, but people were respectful of one another’s space. We walked the beach for a few miles and it never got much larger or better. There are several restaurants on the beach’s edge, many were quite expensive and/or loud. It didn’t have the relaxed beach quality I prefer.

The water was crystal clear and there was no seaweed at all, which made for pleasant wading and walking. The water was a bit chilly, so few people were actually swimming. You do get a workout when you walk, as you sink into the sand because it is not firm. Parking is $4/hr at the public lot, and the price for umbrellas and chairs has gone up from $20 each last year to $25 each this year. Seventy-five dollars for two chairs and one umbrella seems like a lot, especially if you plan to spend multiple days on the beach.

Fort Lauderdale beach is great! There are vendors throughout renting lounge chairs for $18 a day and Canabanas for $100. The beach is very hard to "stroll". The sand is very loss. There's almost always sun and the restaurants lining the area are outdoors and adorable! Walker friendly. Fresh market on Sat mornings is to die for. Fresh fruit stand that accepts credit cards. Have your mask on and enjoy!

Malcolm @ the front desk was amazing! Booking.com gave us the wrong room size and Malcolm didn’t skip a beat transferring us to their sister hotel and even helped carry our luggage down to that property. The price was even lower. He was super friendly, laughing and making us feel right at home. Hotel is cozy, quaint and clean. One block to the beach and a delicious restaurant on site. Our entire party would recommend this hotel and I would definitely stay here again.

This beach is a public beach just miles of clean sand, light blue ocean water with a promenade on one side and the vibe of the city on the other (restaurants, cafes, hotels). You can just sit and enjoy people watching. Even in January the weather is nice. You can go for a stroll along the ocean.

Just a special place. With iconic A1A bordering on the West and the Atlantic Ocean on the East this beach is a true gem. Warm ocean water, fairly course sand, warm breezes, lapping waves, beautiful sunrises, just a great beach. Need a break? Just cross the road to grab a bite to eat, or stop in one of the shops. Can’t wait to get back.

There were quite a few people at the beach because we were there on a Saturday but still the beach is fantastic with the sand, bright sun and calming waves from the Atlantic Ocean. If you not staying at one of the hotels along the strip the parking spaces are difficult to find and so you will have to park in one of the paid parking lots. But plenty of restaurants and shops if you choose a break from the beach.
