Relax on the Beach
Fort Lauderdale beaches offer miles of crystal-clear water and sugary white sand without the crowds often found in Miami. The beaches are easily accessible off Florida State Route A1A. Grab a drink and a bite, and rental equipment at the concession stations along the beaches, or take a stroll on the renovated promenade featuring a variety of shopping and dining establishments like Cafe Del Mar and Bahia Cabana Waterfront Restaurant.
