Pompano Beach is a mecca for beach lovers and outdoor enthusiasts.

South Florida’s balmy weather plus more than three-and-a-half miles of white, sandy beach are the star attractions of this seaside resort town. But pristine beaches aren’t the only reason to visit; there are beautiful parks, nature trails, championship golf and special events.

Next to sunbathing, boating and other beach activities, golfing is probably the number one land sport in town.  There are dozens of championship golf courses within a 30-minute drive to challenge every skill level. In fact, Pompano Beach itself boasts 5, 18-hole championship courses; two at the public Pompano Beach Golf Club, one being the Greg Norman Pines Golf Course, recently redesigned and renovated by world-re-nowned architect and Golf Hall of Famer Greg Norman, it features 7119 yards, par 72 and the other the Palms course is 9280 yards,  par 71; three in North Pompano at the Palm Aire Country Club .

Pompano Beach has the most magnificent scuba diving and snorkeling natural coral reefs that you can swim to from shore, which you can only do in south Florida., For the serious dive enthusiasts, Pompano Beach is the "wreck capitol" of Florida. There are several ship wrecks and miles of colorful reefs to explore.

The Hillsboro Inlet in Pompano Beach has superb deep sea sport-fishing charters. It is the closest marina to the Gulf Stream on the whole of the East Coast, only 6 minutes sailing to the start of deep water so that fishermen can get their lines out almost immediately instead of a slow passage through no-wake zones. Pompano is known worldwide for its most popular annual event, the Pompano Beach Fish Rodeo , where saltwater anglers compete and show off their skills. The resort town has another distinction: known as the “Winter Capital of Harness Racing,” Pompano Harness Track offers pulse-pounding horse racing and competitions throughout the year.
