The Fort Lauderdale Beachfront is great. Nice white fine sand with nice waters . I liked the size of the beach. Lots going on from people watching to beach activities.

Nice long beach for walks and your morning run. It was rather dirty in the morning with plastic, bottles, and all kinds of stuff washed ashore including a needle and syringe I picked up!

Was so blown away by the gorgeous Fort Lauderdale Beaches! The color of the water was just like an Island and beaches so impeccably clean.

Best part of the beach. Shops, nightclubs, & restaurants are right across the street. Parking is not a major problem, but it's better if you get dropped off or ride a bike or bus. Hotels are walking distance and construction is underway for more rooms. There are also some entertaining locals up and down the beach.

Warm water, a long stretch of clean sandy beach, surrounded by many cafes. A fun place to hang out and get that tan. Not too sure about swimming, since we didn't see anyone in the water.

The beach offers a great combination of natural scenery and a large variety of nearby places to relax, shop or dine. Relax on this well kept and clean beach.

We enjoyed the beautiful day driving through the area. The beach is beautiful but rather narrow. Parking seems to always be the challenge there,

The sand is clean, the water is warm and the people are generally friendly tourists. Also consider Hollywood Beach just south when checking all the beaches out. I personally do not like the loud traffic just feet away from the Beach. The city could have planned this out better if they had put some serious thought into this layout.
