Fort Lauderdale Beach is a world famous award-winning beach that stretches from the Port Everglades Inlet & John U. Lloyd State Park in the south to the Hugh Taylor Birch State Park in the north. The beach is a popular place to enjoy snorkelling, boating, wind surfing, jet skiing, volleyball, scuba diving, deep-sea fishing, rollerblading or just relaxing on the shore. Many years ago, Fort Lauderdale beach was a hot spot for teenagers and college kids on their Spring Break. In the late 1980s the city decided to re-create the oceanfront into a place that everyone can enjoy. Alcohol is no longer permitted for public consumption which significantly curtailed the "party" image immortalized in scenes from the movie "Where The Boys Are". The beach has a wonderful paved pedestrian promenade, iconic swervy curvy wave wall and clean beaches. The beaches are monitored by lifeguard stations that are dotted along 2 miles of the shoreline. Additional temporary lifeguard stations are added during holidays or major events to maintain a high level of safety for all.
The Fort Lauderdale Beach Park is located at the southern end of the beach and consists of picnic tables, grills, a playground, beach volleyball nets, and a full court basketball area. There is a restroom and showers for your convenience and access is free of charge. Bring your non-motorized ocean-craft to launch and enjoy some time out on the waves.
