Fort Lauderdale Beachfront

Fort Lauderdale Beach, Fort Lauderdale, FL

The Basics

Lined by a wave wall and promenade, Fort Lauderdale’s coastline boasts six different beaches along with an abundance of shops, restaurants, and nightlife options. Check out family-friendly Deerfield Beach, trendy Fort Lauderdale Beach, and adventure-focused Hallandale Beach, where you can book boat and fishing charters.

Also along the beachfront, Hugh Taylor Birch State Park—known as Fort Lauderdale’s “Central Park”—features a freshwater lagoon popular with kayakers, cyclists, and fishers. And if you’re a scuba diver, head just north of Fort Lauderdale to the small town of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.

It was so much fun I’m returning two days later!
My friend and I went to Fort Lauderdale and thought that the water taxi would be the best way to get around. We actually stayed on it for the whole trip around because it was so enjoyable! Mary and Julie were delightful! And I loved it so much that I’m actually going back today to take another friend.

A must do while at Ft Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale Water Taxi - All Day Pass
Great staff, very helpful and informative. Safe, clean operations. Manage expectations on timing. We waited at Stop #1 for over a half hour thinking it would start at 10am. Also don’t confuse the water trolley with the water taxi. The trolley is free and is run by the same company, but has a downtown route. We’ll run and managed. Capt Mike on the trolley was very informative.

Easy day trip to Key West

Fort Lauderdale to Key West Tour with Optional Add-ons
Definitely the cheapest and easiest way to see Key West in a day. If you want to do a bunch of activities you need multiple days in the keys but if you only want to see Key West as a place this excursion is a great cheap way to do it. But bring a blanket or a sweatshirt on the bus!

Shared Sportfishing Trip from Fort Lauderdale
The best fishing experience we have had yet! The captain and deckhand were great and the experience was a great way to spend the morning. We took home some tuna and got to catch and release some really cool fish. Will definitely be coming back!

Shared Sportfishing Trip from Fort Lauderdale
The crew was amazing. They worked very hard for us the entire trip. They didn’t hound us for tips. Crew Member mentioned it once and that was it. But how could we not tip when we caught such an amazing fish that was absolutely incredible and even better to eat! We had an Amazing time if you get even the slightest bit of motion sickness take some Dramamine the night before in and the morning of the trip and stay outside the boat don’t go inside the cabin 🤢
