Fort Lauderdale beaches include a canine beach; numerous beach parks; and the paved Fort Lauderdale Beachfront Promenade, stretching alongside the Atlantic for two miles, bordered by its iconic white wave wall. Fort Lauderdale Beach Park, located at 1100 Seabreeze Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316, provides one of the most popular options for a day of surf and sand.
Scenic, relaxed, vibrant. Situated less than a mile south of legendary Las Olas Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale Beach Park embodies a lively yet laid-back coastal atmosphere. Here, beachgoers bask in the sun, build sandcastles and swim, while surfers catch waves along the shoreline. Joggers, bikers, and rollerbladers traverse the paved promenade, while in the Park, beach volleyball, picnics under the palms, and luxury yachts sailing on the horizon create an idyllic scene.
An abundance of palms, a latte-hued beach nestled next to azure waters, and top-notch amenities make Fort Lauderdale Beach Park easy to love. Less crowded than nearby Las Olas Oceanside Park, it boasts lifeguards, a wealth of activities both on the beach and onshore, and neighboring luxury hotels such as the W Fort Lauderdale, The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale and Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach. Expect some waves, which will vary depending on tides, winds and offshore systems. If you want to see what you’re missing, check out this slide show of Fort Lauderdale Beach Park.
