Yes, South Florida is beautiful. You know who else thinks so? Pretty much everyone in the world. In fact, it’s such a vacation hotspot that sometimes the crowds that come with the tourism can be overwhelming. Luckily, there are hidden gems like Pompano Beach that offer all the beauty and luxury of South Florida, without the chaos. From accessibility to family-friendly activities to fishing and diving hotspots, Pompano Beach is quickly gaining a reputation as the best beach in Broward County.
10. Traffic & Accessibility
There’s nothing worse than gearing up for a relaxing beach day, only to sit in your car trying to find a parking spot. That’s one of the reasons that Pompano Beach stands out from the rest. Regardless of which direction you’re coming from, Pompano Beach is super easy to navigate and a great way to avoid traffic and stress. Perfect for enjoying a carefree day at the beach!
9. Best Beach Parking Garage in Broward
Speaking of carefree, Pompano Beach boasts a brand new parking garage with luxurious one-of-a-kind upscale amenities. Located at NE Second Street between A1A and Pompano Beach Blvd, the garage includes more than 660 spaces with LED-lit sails, a three-story colorful art installation and a glass elevator with a spectacular ocean view! Plus, the price is right at just $1.25 per hour and offers an elegant convenience to getting in and out of the sun.
Dreaming of your own private beachside sanctuary where you can spread out and relax? Pompano Beach is pretty darn close. Since much of the beach includes timeshare condos that close off their beaches to the general public, it offers an upscale, resort feel where you don’t have to be pestered by large, loud beachgoers or overcrowding.
7. The People
Since many of the beachgoers are actually out-of-towners enjoying a nearby timeshare, the crowd at Pompano Beach is another great asset. Why? Because they are happy to be there and are just as excited to enjoy a good day at the beach as you are. A friendly, clean, fun-loving crowd is what the beach is all about.
6. Fishing & Diving
Pompano Beach has a lot going for it in the fishing and diving sphere–it’s even named after a fish commonly found in the waters! There are lots of great spots for fishermen to take advantage of, from the pier to the rock outlets to the intercostal launching parks that line the A1A. Plus, the sinking Lady Luck has created a cool shipwreck park, perfect for exploring the ocean up close and personal.
5. Views of Historic Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse
Besides the beach itself, Pompano Beach has one of the most spectacular lighthouse views you’ll ever see. The historic Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse is located on the north side of the Hillsboro Inlet and features one of the strongest lights in the world, with a light beam that reaches 28 miles out to sea! Yet another unique stand out amenity that you wont’ find anywhere else.
4. Pompano Beach Pier
Want to take a seaside stroll with beautiful coastal views? It’s encouraged at Pompano Beach–in fact, there’s a pier designated for just that! Currently undergoing a $7 million makeover, it will soon be even more accessible and feature many new shops, food spots and fishing areas. The best part? The pier is totally free!
3. Shaded Outdoor Gym
This is not your average, tired gym equipment that’s been left in the sun to rust. Pompano Beach has created a beautiful shaded area with high quality machines for folks seeking some outdoor fitness. It’s a great way to get a workout in while enjoying the refreshing weather (plus you can jump into the ocean for a quick cool down when you’re done)!
2. Shaded Playground & Play Area For Kids
Someone with kids must have designed this playground because it has everything a family needs. Great shaded play areas, one-of-a-kind climbing equipment and activities and plenty of seating for parents. Plus, it’ nestled right on the beach for a totally inclusive, safe feel.
Picturesque doesn’t even begin to describe it. The wide, landscaped boardwalk lines Pompano Beach for miles and is the perfect way to take a leisurely stroll in the tropical air. It’s also a great place to people watch, as runners, families, bikers, and friends flock to the boardwalk to enjoy the exquisite sights.
