Fort Lauderdale Beachfront

Featuring over 23 miles (37 kilometers) of pristine beach, visitors will have plenty of opportunities to swim and sunbathe. The Fort Lauderdale beachfront offers a wide number of experiences, like wind surfing, jet skiing, boating, snorkeling, deep sea fishing and scuba diving. If you’d rather stay on land, jogging, cycling, rollerblading and beach sports like volleyball and Frisbee are worthwhile beachfront options.

Spend some time in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, known for its scuba diving offerings and pier where you can watch fishermen reeling in fresh catch. Hugh Taylor Birch State Park is another top experience when exploring Fort Lauderdale’s beachfront, and can be accessed via the pedestrian tunnel under A1A. This park has a tropical-feel and offers chances to kayak, fish and cycle. And of course, visiting the beaches themselves is a must, like the family-friendly Deerfield Beach, trendy Fort Lauderdale Beach and adventure-focused Hallandale Beach.

In terms of accommodation, there are a number of Fort Lauderdale beachfront hotels, including the Atlantic Resort & Spa, a luxury boutique hotel overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway; the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel; and the beachfront Ocean Sky Hotel and Resort.

There are also a number of restaurants on the waterfront. After you eat, stroll down the Boulevard to peruse the many boutique shops or grab a drink at a tiki bar.

Practical Info

There are no fees to visit Fort Lauderdale’s beachfront. The city’s beaches are pristine and offer many opportunities for recreation, so allot a minimum of four hours -- although you’ll probably want more -- for your visit. Keep in mind it can get very hot in Fort Lauderdale, so sunscreen, a hat and extra drinking water is recommended.
