Home to the finest beach in Broward County, Pompano Beach is the quintessential Florida beach. Running approximately 3.5 miles in length along the eastern coast, our beach is a wide expanse of golden sand bordered on the north by the Hillsboro Inlet and on the South our neighboring city of Lauderdale By The Sea.
Recently completed renovations of the main beachfront area at Atlantic Boulevard and Pompano Beach Boulevard running north for several blocks include: restroom facilities, showers, picnic shelters and tables, barbecue grills, an outdoor gym and children's playground are located on the beach. The public beach is open 365 days a year. Swimming areas are guarded seven days a week by the beach patrol (certified by United States Lifesaving Association) – from 9.00am to 4.45pm. Look for swimming conditions posted on the lifeguard stands.
The Pompano Beach Municipal Pier at 222 North Pompano Beach Boulevard is open 24 hours a day and bait is available in the tackle shop. The pier is approximately 1000 feet in length and is open to visitors for strolling and fishing and offers a consession stand with food and beverages for purchase.
North Ocean Park at NE 16th Street also offers a pavilion and picnic area with restroom facilities.
Pompano Beach was awarded a Blue Wave Beach designation by the Clean Beaches Council. The Clean Beaches Council is a Washington, D.C. based national non-profit organization devoted to increasing public awareness of environmental, health and safety conditions along our nation’s shoreline.
