    Nice beach within walking distance to hotels and shops. You can see coconut trees and palm trees. Sea water is crystal clear. They have chairs and umbrellas for rent if you want. I loved Fort Beach.

    Besides laying on the beach, you can also go parasailing, deep sea fishing, snorkeling and scuba diving. Tons of great shops and restaurants around the area you must explore.

    If you want to people watch then you should park yourself near Las Olas Blvd. If you want a more quiet Beach head on up near Sunrise Blvd. Love it either way.

    Make sure to stop by the Q shop! There are some extremely unique apparel options there, and if you check-in they'll throw in a 10% off discount! Show them my four square.

    I'm an idiot for not coming here at least once a month. The water is clear. The sand is super nice. And tip: easy access by parking first public parking by Bahia Mar.

    Best spot on the beach for large parties. It's first come first serve so come early! There is a playground there as well. By far the best family spot

    $1.50 per hr parking... right next to beach but farther away from restaurants. A lot cheaper parking & very peaceful :)

    An all day pass for the city bus is only $4. Grab lunch at one of the fine restaurants on las olas blvd and catch the bus down to the beach so u don't have to deal with parking or a lot of walking

    After a nice cool beer, get in your car and turn right at the Dive Bar corner and head for the best beach on the planet just below the Pelican Hotel where they have terrific food in the restaurant. Read more

    Please be aware of sea turtle nests marked off by caution tape there are baby sea turtles growing underground. When walking at night keep an eye out for nesting mothers and do not disturb them

    It is a great beach during weekdays, but it can get a bit crowded during the weekend. Don't even try it during Spring Break

    Don't go right in front of Beach Place, go a block south in front of RokBar and you'll have more space

    This beach has a beach wavewall – a flowing, swirling beach wall that extends two miles along the central portion of Fort Lauderdale Beach.

    Go South from here to all the major bars and clubs on the strip. Go North for the low key cool local spots.

    Great beach but you have to move north to the life guard stand after about 4 to avoid the shadow cast by the Ritz.

    If you're here for more than one day, buy your own chair and umbrella. Otherwise you get taken to the cleaners on chair and umbrella rentals
