How To Spend A Day At Fort Lauderdale Beach

How To Spend A Day At Fort Lauderdale Beach

Start your day at St. Bart’s Coffee Company. This cornerstone of Fort Lauderdale Beach (FLB) claims the “best beans on the beach,” and offers something for everyone, from coffee to a light or full breakfast. Try the Steak + Eggs, or for something lighter, grab a smoothie to go. Also to go are snacks and drinks you can grab for the beach.

Head to the Beach
FLB is home to some of the most beautiful sand and water in the world and is known for its signature White Wave Wall and Red Brick Riverwalk. You can just relax, build your tan, or check out some of the available activities like windsurfing, jet skiing, and volleyball.

When the heat picks up around Noon or 1 p.m., head inside for some lunch. Coconuts is consistently rated one of the best picks in the area. If you are still full from breakfast, opt for the Conch Fritters to share. If not, try the Coconut Shrimp Platter or Jambalaya. Coconuts is a great value and also serves dinner.

Bike Ride
Work off your fried seafood with a scenic bike ride. Broward B-cycle is a community bike share offering 30-minute rentals for five dollars. You can also opt for the 7-day membership for $25. Central Beach to Burnham Point is ten minutes one-way and a little over one and a half miles. You can also take the “Red Brick Road” in any direction and turn around at the 15-minute mark. Stations are spread out at short intervals along the beach.

Relatively new to FLB, Back Alley Bar & BBQ is an upscale sports bar that is hip enough for couples looking for a night out, but casual enough for families. The Burnt Ends are especially good, but with limited availability. The Apple Dumplings cannot be missed.

End your day watching the Sunset, which occurs just after 8 p.m. in summer. You can stay at the beach for this or head to your Fort Lauderdale Stays vacation rental to watch it in the privacy of your patio. Either way, a Florida sunset is the perfect way to end a day in Fort Lauderdale.
