About this beach

Warnings and hazards

Pay attention to the beach flags – there may be rip currents.

Despite the fact that South Florida has developed very quickly and lost most of its natural terrain, there are some places where you can still enjoy its genuine natural beauty and Hallandale Beach is one of them. It’s a small, village-like city with a serene, uncrowded one-mile-long beach on the Atlantic shore. If you’re looking for a true, unsophisticated Florida experience, this is the place for you.

Location and Access

The city of Hallandale Beach lies right to the south of Hollywood; it’s just an hour's drive from Miami. You can find the beach along South Ocean Drive. The beach is public so there are no entrance fees.

A spacious parking lot is available at South City Beach Park. During the peak season, it may be difficult to find a parking space unless you stay at one of the nearby resorts or – arrive early enough.

Facilities

The area is family-friendly and features all basic amenities like restrooms, showers, cabanas, a snack bar (slightly pricey), a children’s playground, a volleyball court, and even shaded tables for playing cards or dominoes.

There are two parks close by – North City Beach Park and South City Beach Park. Various eateries are within walking distance and some of them are quite decent seafood restaurants. The beach is close to shopping and entertainment facilities so you can fill up your day in this quiet place with diverse activities.

Sand and Water

This long and broad beach consists of soft, white sand, which is replenished once every several years. The area is well-kept; there are umbrellas and chairs for rent.

The water is warm and clean. The sea is different every day: sometimes it is rough and sometimes it is flat calm. Overall, it’s shallow and the bottom is good. There are lifeguards on duty so swimming is quite safe. However, always pay attention to the beach flags warning of any possible danger.

Other Activities

Locals and tourists spend their time on Hallandale Beach not only swimming and sunbathing but also strolling, jogging, and riding bikes. The beach has a tiled boardwalk and a separate bike trail, making it safer and more pleasant to walk. Finally, you can just sit on the beach and watch the waves, birds, and cruise ships. Very relaxing. And sunsets are beautiful here.
