Fort Lauderdale Beaches
You're in good sands! Warm your toes in the golden sands of Greater Fort Lauderdale's 23 miles of sun-kissed beaches - an easy walk from many of our hotels, restaurants and activities. There's no better way to relax, refresh, renew and reconnect. Enjoy a day of fun in the sun and swimming in the warm Atlantic waters. Greater Fort Lauderdale wants you to enjoy our Blue Wave beaches safely.
Enjoy the sunrise on beautiful Deerfield Beach, Greater Fort Lauderdale’s northern most award-winning, cove-like beaches and the destination’s family playground.
Need to unwind with a tranquil, relaxing day? Hillsboro Beach is Greater Fort Lauderdale's Quiet Escape. Enjoy views of the Hillsboro Lighthouse and remember to watch your step, as the beach is popular with nature lovers who come to see the turtle nesting.
With a reputation as a Low-Key Get-Away, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, is a 1/2 mile wide hamlet which has that old fashioned, charming "beach village" vibe. This town is one of the only locations in Florida where the three-tier natural coral reef system is close enough for visitors to swim out for snorkeling or diving.
Retro Cool, Hollywood Beach is home to the Boardwalk which runs 2 ½ miles up and down this sun-kissed oceanfront. Visitors can stroll along on foot or hop on a bike and find a great outdoor café to wile away the hours watching "man's best friend" run up and down the area's favorite dog beach.
Whether you love to watch or play, Greater Fort Lauderdale is heaven for the sports lover. Planning a sports event? Visit the Greater Fort Lauderdale Sports Development section for your sports group needs. Watch the Miami Dolphins play at Sun Life Stadium, see the NHL in action at the BankAtlantic Center, home to Florida Panthers ice hockey, or watch the NASL Fort Lauderdale Strikers play at the Fort Lauderdale Stadium.
Lush links and loads of courses combined with easy accessibility, comparatively low green fees, unmatched settings and year-round play make Greater Fort Lauderdale a hole-in-one for golfers. More than 40 courses offer options for players of all skill levels and include exclusive private clubs, premier municipal facilities maintained to the highest standards, and resort courses designed by luminaries such as Joe Lee, Bruce Devlin, Robert von Hagge, Rees Jones, Raymond Floyd, Robert Trent Jones, and Tom and George Fazio.
Relax and unwind at a local wine bar, or dance it up with martinis and heart-pumping music . Catch the game with friends at a sports bar or laugh the night away at a comedy club. Bring your cowboy hat and boots for a country/western night out at the saloon, or feel the passionate and energetic vibe (and maybe even learn to salsa!) of Latin-inspired nightlife.
