  • Great place to grab some sun. Next to a busy road would be the only negative about this beautifull spot.  more »
  • Chill kind of place. Watch the kids play on the beach while having a couple of drinks. I feel the best time to come here is in the morning or evening watching the sun set. Very Nice.  more »

  • Great beach for locals and tourists alike. There are many dinning options around which make this a great spot if you want a place to spent the day at. There are also a few stores to do some shopping. However the prices are much over the standard. If you have the ability to drive do go to not so tourist spot for better shopping deals.
  • This is one of our top beaches in South Florida. Lots of nice restaurants and little shops. Beautiful sidewalk along the beach. Nice BBQ area near the south end of the beach with tables and grills.
  • Clean sand. Water is clear and beautiful. Not still but far from rough. Nice calming waves. entire strip is just filled with bars and restaurants. Great drinks and food.
  • Love to visit this beach when I am in Florida. It has the same feel of South beach however it has less cowards. From restaurants, water activities and easy parking Las Olas provides entertainment for everyone.
  • Gorgeous! The shops are friendly and the Italian restaurant let us change our clothes from airplane attire to beachwear. (We did end up eating there as a thank you.) Beach was beautiful! Waves were crashing! It was absolutely gorgeous! Don't attempt to use the beach furniture unless you have extra cash. Make sure to pack extra for that.
