  • This beach was one of the cleanest I have seen. It was also not super packed. Finding parking is difficult.  more »
  • If the ideas of cycling or just a walk along the beach,you are in the right place,The waves offer a privileged view plus sands and meek beach, surrounded by places and restaurants that offer a myriad of options when it comes to taking a rich drink or a refreshing beer.

  • 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.
