With 3,000 hours of sunshine a year and many of Florida¹s cleanest and safest beaches, welcome to Fort Lauderdale! Ideally located in the centre of South Florida’s Gold Coast, halfway between Palm Beach and Miami. The area encompasses Hollywood and Hallendale Beach to the south and as far north as Pompano and Deerfield Beach.
Beach action centres along Atlantic Boulevard and Beach Promenade. At its heart, Atlantic Boulevard meets up with Las Olas Boulevard, the chic strip for alfresco dining, edgy galleries, distinctive boutiques and designer shopping. Take a trip on the Mississippi Paddle steamer, Jungle Queen, and view the opulent mansions of the rich and renowned. If you're feeling flush, why not hire your own speed boat for the day and dock at Shooters Waterfront Café for a cold beer and a plate of fresh shrimp.
Palm Trees sway gently in the cooling Atlantic breezes that bath the wonderful beachfront promenade with its award-winning “wave wall”. A great place for walking, biking or blading on a Fort Lauderdale holiday.
Quite different from its neighbours as it is more of a cove. There is a great fishing pier and for surfers the north side has great waves.
The pristine sand and delightful John Lloyd State Park make this a a favourite.
Sharing some of the characteristics of its California name-sake, Hollywood has a relaxed and glamorous feel. You will love the 2.5 miles of Boardwalk – perfect for an oceanfront stroll, or maybe some more strenuous exercise.
Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the video for our take on this important topic.
