Punctuated by shops, restaurants, cafes, and entertainment venues, Fort Lauderdale Beach stretches for nearly 37 km (23 mi) along the Atlantic Ocean. You can boat, windsurf, jet ski, snorkel, scuba dive, and fish, or simply pick a private spot on the golden sand and spend the day relaxing in and out of the turquoise waves. The popular beachfront contains over 3 km (2 mi) of continuous public beach, featuring staffed lifeguard towers. Near the beachfront you can also visit the city's renowned aquatics center, which notably contains two large swimming pools and a diving pool. Take a walk along the pedestrian beachfront promenade to see the famous wave wall, the area's signature attraction.

  • Great beach of calm seas and warm (super taste) but Chair rental and beach umbrella very expensive, if you can take your. Has secured parking but affordable, very light sunscreen and enjoy the beach, on the edge of the beach has many great restaurants.
