Fort Lauderdale Beach, Fort Lauderdale

Punctuated by shops, restaurants, cafes, and entertainment venues, Fort Lauderdale Beach stretches for nearly 37 km (23 mi) along the Atlantic Ocean.

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.
