  • Parking is very difficult, and too many people in this area but the water is amazingly warm and clear.  more »
  • Looked liked most people were wearing masks on the beach. Unlike Las Olas Blvd. that was alarming. The restaurants were very busy and so was the beach and it was around 6 pm.  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‚Äôs always a spot for everyone. The BBQ area and the small playground is comfy with plenty of space to rest with family and friends.
