Enjoy a quiet stretch of sand at Las Olas Beach, which is also known for its restaurants. The beach is rarely crowded. Biking along the promenade is a popular pastime; you can rent a bike at one of a few shops near the beach. For authentic home cooking and fresh seafood, head to one of the restaurants on promenade. Consider a short water-taxi ride from the shore to visit some of the nearby sites along the coast. A visit to Las Olas Beach represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Fort Lauderdale travel tool to plot your vacation.

We walked down and across the street to the beach and it was just what we needed!!! The tide was a bit rough but the weather was perfect!! more »
This is a most relaxing time for the heat in South Florida. Awesome restaurants and little shops nearby. Also some nice hotels. But the better hotels are on the other side crossing Oakland Park Blvd. Right on Ocean Drive. Anyways, all on Ocean Drive going up all the way to Pompano Beach are plenty of GREAT hotels...plenty!
The beach is always clean. Parking is a little hard to find during the weekend (mainly on summer). Some parts are busier than others, but there’s always a spot for everyone. The BBQ area and the small playground is comfy with plenty of space to rest with family and friends.
