  • Las Olas beach occupies the central part of a very long Ft. Lauderdale beach. I could compare it with the Miami's South beach on a smaller scale. However, being in the very center it's also little...  more »
  • We went to this beach in the end of January, and the temperature and the wind were not helping much in getting into the water. But the beach is still beautiful, has a convenient parking lot just...  more »
  • Love the Ft Lauderdale beach! It spans for miles and is the heart of Ft Lauderdale - and is not usually overwhelmingly crowded. Beautiful beach within walking distance to great restaurants and shops.....  more »

  • This is a most relaxing time for the heat in South Florida. Awesome restaurants and little shops nearby. Also some nice hotels. But the better hotels are on the other side crossing Oakland Park Blvd. Right on Ocean Drive. Anyways, all on Ocean Drive going up all the way to Pompano Beach are plenty of GREAT hotels...plenty!
  • The beach is always clean. Parking is a little hard to find during the weekend (mainly on summer). Some parts are busier than others, but there‚Äôs always a spot for everyone. The BBQ area and the small playground is comfy with plenty of space to rest with family and friends.
  • What a beautiful beach. The water is so clear , we were able to see a baby Sting Ray right by the shoreline. You have to pay for parking which is not a bad price. Proximity from parking to the beach were close. Lots of restaurants across from the beach to for dinner or lunch. One of the better beach on the Atlantic side of FL. Not crowded. We were here in late July. Will definitely be back.
  • I love everything about this area! Shopping, restaurants, bars, nice people, you name it! It's here! Bars, clubs at night, seafood, regular food, handicapped parking and walk ways..however! you have to PAY FOR PARKING! $10 all day outside parking or at garage I believe. some are even $12 or you pay $1.75 per hour at meters.....your choice.
  • Nice clean beaches.. full of nice restaurants and places to visit. Without doubt one of the nicest places in south Florida
