Fort Lauderdale Beach
Vacation Travel Guide

Fort Lauderdale Beach which includes a luxury hotel or resort and a sandy beach as well as a large group of people

With seven miles of flawless beach, a team of dedicated lifeguards and luxury retailers and restaurants, this is the perfect Florida vacation destination.

Having shed its reputation as merely a spring break destination for college students, this stretch of coast is enjoying a renaissance and a very different audience. Fort Lauderdale Beach has transformed itself over the past two decades, through efforts of the local town council, and is today one of Florida’s most stylish stretches of coast. Visit and experience today’s Fort Lauderdale.

The boulevard that snakes above the sand is lined by luxury accommodations, fine dining restaurants and chic al fresco cafés. Spend your morning sipping coffee, your afternoons swimming under the gaze of one of Florida’s famous lifeguards and your evenings dining beneath the stars at one of the most sophisticated beach destinations in the state.

With 7 miles (11 kilometers) of sand, Fort Lauderdale Beach is ideal for those wanting peace and quiet while they relax beneath the sun. Head to the patrolled area in the middle of the beach for security as you and your family swim. Experienced lifeguards are on patrol year-round and extra stations are added during peak periods. Lay down your towel beneath windswept palm trees before diving into the calm, warm water.

After you’ve cooled off, wander along the promenade in the direction of the marina to find a spot for lunch. Choose from a variety of cuisines ranging from light sandwiches and snacks to a more formal lunch of fresh seafood. You’ll find plenty of shopping opportunities dotted along the promenade. Browse the latest collections of international fashion houses or hunt for a one-off item from local designers before returning to the beach.

From Miami, reach Fort Lauderdale Beach by car or bus. Use the metered car parking spots along the streets. Cycling along the boulevard is a pleasant way to find the best spot to set up on the beach. Rent a bike from one of the numerous vendors in the region. The beach can be visited year-round and has no fee.
