About
Spanning between Dania Beach and Golden Beach, this strip is quieter and often more pocket friendly than the neighboring Miami Beach. Let the locals skate and cycle past as you stroll along the boardwalk promenade in search of that perfect spot to bask in the Florida sun. Vendors will set you up with lounge chairs, umbrellas, and cabanas, but the soft white sand will do just fine for many. Take a dip in the crystal clear waters, then hit one of the waterfront establishments for a meal and live music. The weather is the most pleasant between December and April, while summer is hurricane season. – Tripadvisor

    Paradise hollywood beach at risk
    Hollywood beach is a beautiful paradise in Hollywood Florida.. The only problem is unknoundesirable's and homeless are beginning to feel comfortable there as well.. Among the undesirables was a fight and shooting where 9 people We're shot memorial day weekend. It is unfortunate. The undesirable's need to be more policed and removed... If more action is not taken hollywood beach will be another venice beach unsafe dirty and forget about it. Law enforcement please. Get strict. Clean out the homeless and undesirable people.

    Beautiful Beach - Don’t Eat on Broadwalk
    Excellent beach. Some sorghum this visit but the water is beautiful. Missed the Spring Break, thankfully as peaceful and quiet. One word of advice, don’t eat on the Broadwalk. Restaurants are okay at best. Travel 3-5 miles inland for some better food. The best food is on the gulf side of Florida. Locally sourced seafood delivered daily there - check out Crabby Bills in Indian Shores area.

    Just the place you need for a relaxing get away!
    It has been some time since we were last here, and I must say Hollywood Beach did not disappoint spent the days on the beach relaxing and enjoying the warm ocean water. Shops and food just steps away on the boardwalk. Great family atmosphere as well as great for a couples getaway. The perfect vibe a beach getaway! Shout out to Lance and Joseph for getting us set up on the beach!

    Hollywood Boardwalk Fun
    Love walking the boardwalk area right on the water! Rented beach chairs and relaxed one day and went over to the Hard Rock Cafe inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino last night. A really great area to visit.

    I’ll Be Back
    I had such a relaxing time. Even though I didn’t rent any of the equipment, Melanie made sure to treat me with kindness and respect. The beach itself was beautiful, and the water was fine. I enjoyed spending time with my friends and will be back, maybe I’ll rent something next time.

    Best day at beach
    Had the best experience on the beach today at Hollywood beach. Naomi, christian, and juan took excellent care of me and even made the loud people next to me move when they were bothering me. I have been to all the beaches in Florida and this was the best experience I have had. Much respect to the staff for taking care of me.

    Great staff and experience!
    Christian and Lawrence were very helpful! There was also a gentleman who managed everyone who was always very friendly. They all came over to check on us throughout the day to make sure the setup worked for us. Chairs were comfy (we received two free chairs daily through our hotel) and we purchased a cabana cover or umbrella each day. The guys were very patient with us while we decided what type of setup we wanted each day. Definitely recommend!

    Staff was attentive from start to finish!
    The day was great! Staff checked in regularly to make sure we were comfortable. Whether it was an additional chair for the teenagers to join us or an umbrella needed to shield us from the Florida SUN the team made sure we were all set!

    Best beach day ever!
    Best beach near Miami! Marlin and Lou took great care of us all day in the sun. Comfy chairs and umbrella shade. The whole family loved our time here. Swing by and see these guys for a relaxing beach day…or two!

    A VERY LOVELY BEACH AND BOARDWALK
    This is truly a beautiful find of a Beach and Boardwalk in Florida. We truly enjoyed visiting this Beach and Boardwalk. This Beach is located in between Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. The Boardwalk and Beach stretch for a long and wide section on the Atlantic Ocean Front, and the OCEAN WATER IS BLUE, so beautiful and the Sand is clean and White. Although we did not actually go sit on the Beach, we enjoyed the view of the Beach from the Boardwalk, and also we saw that they have Cabanas and Chairs for rental on the Beach. On the Boardwalk there are Public Bathrooms and also there is some Public Parking in some spots off of the Boardwalk which are located on the Street running Parallel to the Beach, and there is also a Public Bus that runs up and down the Street as well that will take you to other areas for a fee that you can get an App on your phone to purchase rides. Hollywood Florida's Hollywood Beach & Boardwalk has some Hotels located right on the Boardwalk, and also there are Restaurants and Shops. We saw that they had a performance Stage also on the Boardwalk. They also have on the Boardwalk a Bike and Skate Lane, and there are also shops on the Boardwalk that Rent out Bikes. We saw a sign that said NO pets are allowed on the Beach and Boardwalk, but we did see People who certainly did have their Pets with them on the Boardwalk and nothing seemed enforced from when we were there. The Beach and Boardwalk do appear to be with a safe and clean feel to it, we did not see a lot of Homeless Citizens on the Boardwalk and Beach, but the few that we did see on the Boardwalk were not Panhandling but just there also relaxing and minding their own business. We took a Night Stroll on the Boardwalk and although it felt safe, it was not well lighted enough in our opinion. Anyway, this Beach is a lovely place to go and enjoy, and they have plenty of Ice Cream shops on the Boardwalk, it is not cheaply priced though, and tasted just okay and not a lot for what you get in what you pay for the Ice Cream. I forgot to take a photo of my Ice Cream and also note the store that I bought it from on the Boardwalk, but they do have many places to buy Ice Cream there.

Stayed at the Hollywood beach Marriott Peaceful, Relaxing. Beautiful views, water was amazing. Although the hotel is pretty pricy. Fees for everything and could use some updates, the people were very friendly. Always available to help. The beach Cabanas were such a good idea.

Our chairs and umbrella were set up well by Michael F and they were definitely needed with such a high UV index even with the lovely sea breeze. Highly recommended

Came with the family for a little quick getaway! It was super hot but Lou and Nelson was a huge help in getting our umbrella set up. It was great talking with them and getting a little recommendation about the area. Will definitely be back!! Thanks Lou and Nelson!!!
