The Fort Lauderdale Prime Area attracts tourists from around the world, focusing on foreign travelers who want to experience its laid-back, but sophisticated coastal culture and stunning scenery. Find yourself surrounded, from the beaches to the Florida Everglades, by blue skies, palm trees, and happy faces.

When it comes to beaches, this area is unsurpassed with 37 kilometers of golden coastline that encompasses eight beaches, all with different styles. From Deerfield Beach, a family favorite, shaped like a cove; From the popular fishing spots of retro Pompano Beach and Hollywood Beach to the seaside town charm of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and the cosmopolitan feel of Fort Lauderdale, there's a beach for every mood.

Organic cuisine predominates, with Florida-style seafood caught the same day and prepared. Five-star dining experiences and more than two dozen options for 'pier and dinner' are waiting for you.
