I came down to Fort Lauderdale to visit my family this past week. We stayed at a resort near the beach. It's amazing. I walked the beach for a few miles in each direction (along A1A) and it's beautiful. Clean, white sand and blue water with big waves. You couldn't ask for more! Now, if you go to the public... More

I loved being able to walk down to the beach from our hotel (The Fortuna). The beach was beautiful with so much around to eat and shop!

Beaches clean, easy to get to, no street parking close, so had to walk a block, but anything you want as far as a nice clean Atlantic Beach Walk with sand. Enjoy.

Fort Lauderdale city have done a great job over the years. The beach is well maintained, kept clean - showers for rinsing, trash cans, lovely spot for a walk (early morning is best!) Normal beach traffic as per anywhere, the idiots on their noisy bikes showing off (as well as the idiots in their noisy cars) Besides that, all I... More

Easy access, clean and good people watching. They have loungers for rent with umbrella's. Not sure of the cost as we didn't use them.

I LOVE the beach and Ft Lauderdale is one of my favorites. The location is nice and the weather was wonderful when the honey and I went. Great places to eat and/or grab a drink along the way.

What a wonderful beach. Walk down from Terramar in the north through Sebastian Beach, across from the Ritz, thru an open mall, all the way down to Bahia Cabana for cocktails. Truly a great beach! Beautiful! Clean!! Big!
