Pompano Beach boasts a three-mile stretch of glorious beaches anchored by the Fisher Family Pier, located at 222 N. Pompano Beach Blvd, Pompano Beach, FL 33062.


Family-friendly, hidden gem where adventures abound.

Palms and old-Florida style condos line the shores at Pompano Beach, giving the area a quiet resort atmosphere-- but it’s anything but a snooze, offering epic wade-in snorkeling and diving, legendary fishing, and high adrenaline sports like kiteboarding.

See, feel

You’ll find plenty of space to plant your beach umbrella on Pompano Beach, a designated Blue Wave Beach that’s a whopping 100 yards wide, laden with cocoa-hued sand and dotted with candy-colored lifeguard stands. A sea of palms; beachgoers playing volleyball on the sand; and the Fisher Family Pier, reaching far over the Atlantic and complete with an end shaped like a pompano fish, make it feel like a laid-back party. Right next door, the island-style Lucky Fish Bar and Grill invites you to cool off with smoothies, cervezas and tropical concoctions. How good is it? Money Magazine ranks it the best beach in the world.

Expect some waves, which will vary according to winds, tides, and offshore systems.

On or near the beach

Kicked back or full throttle: you have plenty of options on Pompano Beach. Stroll the lushly landscaped boardwalk; let the little ones cool off in the splash area; or sit back on the sand to watch a free show of mind-blowing flips, jumps, and twists at 16th Street, a mecca for hardcore kite surfers. The wade-in snorkeling is superb, with a vibrant coral reef just offshore. Scuba divers can explore Shipwreck Park, home to 19 wrecks and sunken art. Pompano Beach Fishing Village is directly on the beach, serving up dining, shopping and entertainment.

Boogie boarding, paddling, sailing, surfing, fishing and jet-skiing are other popular watersports.
