If your idea of a perfect day at the beach is a day full of action-packed fun, then Fort Lauderdale beach is for you. With a mix of swanky restaurants, shops, and hotels combined with opportunities for beach volleyball, jet skiing, snorkeling, parasailing, fishing, and much more, there’s plenty to do on and off the beach.
Things to Do
Once you’ve arrived at the beach, stroll the famous Fort Lauderdale Beachfront Promenade to scope out the area and decide where you’ll set up for the day. A wave wall stretches two miles along the promenade and makes for a nice photo opt with the ocean in the background.
Activities abound with vendors up and down the beach offering all you’ll need. You can rent everything from boats to bicycles from businesses like Fun Center Fort Lauderdale, and they’ll even take you on tours via Segway or WaveRunner. Aloha Watersports is another rental company for watersports equipment suitable for parasailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, and a whole lot more.
If you’re itching to go beyond the beach and explore the ocean waters further, there are plenty of opportunities to test out your sea legs. Families and kids will love Bluefoot Pirate Adventures where you’ll set sail on a real pirate ship for a treasure hunt led by a captain. Coastal Yacht Tours and YOLO Boat Rentals are excellent options for special occasions where you want to enjoy the luxury of your own yacht to sip champagne and eat caviar.
When hunger strikes, take your pick of restaurants ranging from casual and family friendly to upscale and refined. Get laid-back, beachside seafood at Bo’s Beach or Lulu’s Bait Shack. Head to 3030 Ocean Restaurant or Spazio for elegant dining with exquisite views and an excellent wine selection. For a memorable meal followed by late-night drinks, Casablanca Café or Tsukuro are top picks.
