Beach Time - Fort Lauderdale Beach

Welcome to Fort Lauderdale Beach, Greater Fort Lauderdale's sunny, sultry, and sandy pièce de résistance. This 'beach chic destination' is great for people watching, strolling, jogging, rollerblading, or simply sitting back and enjoy the surf sand and sun. Spend your day swimming your cares away, or perhaps exploring the wide array of shops, restaurants, sidewalk cafes, and entertainment venues lining the beach and nearby Las Olas Boulevard. If you are up for more of an adventure you can also go boating, windsurfing, jet-skiing, snorkeling, scuba diving, or deep-sea fishing!
