About this beach

Warnings and hazards

Alcohol is prohibited.

Pets are not allowed on the beach or the Boardwalk.

Charnow Park is an oceanfront park on the historic Hollywood Beach Broadwalk offering beach access, picnic pavilions, shaded seating area, workout facilities, playgrounds and a splash fountain for children – it’s a great place to bring your family and it rarely gets overcrowded.

On some days, you can listen to live music in the park. It’s also good for people watching since the beach here attracts tourists from all over the world, people of different languages and different cultures. Additionally, there is a lot of beautiful scenery for taking photos.

Location and Access

You can find Charnow Park at 300 Connecticut Street, Hollywood Beach, Florida. It is located just north of Hollywood Boulevard, stretching from South Ocean Drive to the Boardwalk along the shore. The park is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

You can park your car in a municipal parking garage at a price of $4 per hour (paid in cash or by credit card), which means you can park your car in the shade! However, the garage fills up quickly so parking can become a challenge during the peak season. There is no admission fee in the park.


There are fairly clean restrooms right across from the beach. If you get hungry, there are a few places to grab a snack on-site and you can eat at one of the picnic tables. There is a family BBQ area on the beach. For children, there are a splash pad and a climbing wall.

Beach Access

In addition to other family activities, Charnow Park is a nice spot to go to the beach. It’s clean and child-friendly. There is a designated picnic area. Swimming is quite safe since there are lifeguards on duty. The beach in Charnow Park is also a nice spot to watch the sunrise.
