Fort Lauderdale Beach, Fort Lauderdale

Punctuated by shops, restaurants, cafes, and entertainment venues, Fort Lauderdale Beach stretches for over 11 km (7 mi) along the Atlantic Ocean. You can boat, windsurf, jet ski, snorkel, scuba dive, and fish, or simply pick a private spot on the golden sand and spend the day relaxing in and out of the turquoise waves. The popular beachfront contains over 3 km (2 mi) of continuous public beach, featuring staffed lifeguard towers. Near the beachfront you can also visit the city's renowned aquatics center, which notably contains two large swimming pools and a diving pool. Take a walk along the pedestrian beachfront promenade to see the famous wave wall, the area's signature attraction.
