The beach here is not only wide with nice sand, but what makes it special is the sidewalk that allows you to walk alongside it with a full view of the beach and Ocean. And you've got lots of places to dine and hang out across the street. The beach at Palm Beach has a sidewalk along it, but the... More

The beach was very enjoyable with white sands and clear water that allows to see the bottom of the ocean below.

$12 per chair $20 per umbrella and it doesn't matter which hotel you are staying at you still have to pay. Beach overall was nice, water was beautiful, crystal clear. There were a few provocative things we saw at the beach ; an amateur photographer photographing young women (with their permission) with next to nothing on bathing suits and a... More

We walked a few miles on the boardwalk each morning we were there. Nice wide beach with lots of picnic tables. Lots of family's frequent the beach.

Beach is extremely clean, not too crowded this time of the year (February) and the weather was perfect. The water was a little cold for my kids, but that's ok. Sand was clean and we had a lot if fun together. Beautiful people around, good bars at night and lots of good restaurants to eat. Family vacation couldn't be better.

My husband and I needed a beach vacation in the winter, so we decided to try Ft. Lauderdale for Valentine's day. It was absolutely gorgeous and well worth it. There is plenty of sun all day and is perfect for sunbathers. It is very safe for families as well. There isn't a swell, so little ones could boogie board, but... More

great sandy beach but busy area. High traffic area and lots of clubs and people. Great nite life and fun place if you have patients for the crowd

This is a very nice place. The road is very close and has an incredible amount of traffic. It's also a very busy place with lots of people. I would absolutely visit again but it's not the kind of place conducive to a relaxing, peaceful place. If you are just looking for a nice active day at the beach, this... More

We visited friends at their condo right on the beach near downtown and were amazed at the quantity of condos right on the water. That makes for a wonderful stay to be able to just walk out to the beach. And the beach is clean and beautiful.
