#3 of 8 in Parks in Fort Lauderdale
Enjoy a quiet stretch of sand at Las Olas Beach, which is also known for its restaurants. The beach is rarely crowded. Biking along the promenade is a popular pastime; you can rent a bike at one of a few shops near the beach. For authentic home cooking and fresh seafood, head to one of the restaurants on promenade. Consider a short water-taxi ride from the shore to visit some of the nearby sites along the coast. A visit to Las Olas Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Fort Lauderdale travel tool to plot your vacation.

  • After many times in Florida in my opinion I consider the beaches in Fort Lauderdale better than Miami Beach because are less crowded and less traffic in the area.  more »
  • This is a place to relax on the terrace to sit down with a snack and a drink. It is not very cheap.

  • I loved this place. It is the best place for one to relax and enjoy the beach. The atmosphere is the best.

  • 4th of July celebration! Fun evening at the beach! Wind was blowing so there was a nice breeze, there was a live band playing before the fireworks, and then played patriotic songs during the fireworks display. Super cool event. BIG PLUS**** it was FREE.
  • Great for people watching and walking on both Las Olas and A1A... both are filled with a variety of restaurants, small boutiques and your usual touristy beach shops but you'll only find the touristy attractions and more tiki bar scene on A1A which intersects at the end of Las Olas. Both are worth visiting but unfortunately Las Olas is currently going through a transitional period so there's a lot of places available for lease... new construction and lots of hype for great things to come but so far I haven't seen too much for Spring 2017... but I'll always love Las Olas... you can't beat everything it has to offer all in walking distance!
  • I been going to Las Olas beach for over 20 years. This is the second best beach you can go to in South Florida. For sure you will not be dealing with mass of amount of traffic, large crowds etc..... There is a place called Beach place where there are few shops and restaurants like lulu bay shack, Hooters, Fat Tuesday and many more.... I'll be glad to answer any questions about this location and if you found this comment helpful please press like.
  • Very clean, water is clear and warm. Fun strip with a lot,of shops, restaurants and bars. Went on 4th of July had big inflatable water slides set up for everyone to use.
  • The most beautiful beach in Fort Lauderdale. Very busy with a huge young crowd. Well kept. Guarantees a great time.
