Pompano Beach is perfect for the water sport and beach enthusiast. Boating and fishing opportunities abound, and the area is noted among the scuba community for the coral reef just offshore. Several local dive companies are available to help you make the most of your diving adventure, with different excursions to suit all ages, skill levels, and interests. You can snorkel or dive at the reef, but you can also dive around shipwrecks, go night diving, or go spearfishing.
Pristine sands, beachside playgrounds, splash pads, and bike rentals make Pompano Beach exceptionally family friendly. The beach has lifeguards on duty, as well as roped safety areas with buoy markers. Visitors to Pompano Beach beach houses describe this beach as more secluded and relaxed than other nearby Florida beaches.
Although Pompano Beach beach houses are treated to the relaxing atmosphere of the beach, there is no shortage of city attractions to enjoy. Eateries in Pompano Beach and surrounding communities embrace international cuisine-Italian, Lebanese, Caribbean, Mediterranean, and Haitian, to name a few-and, of course, fresh-caught seafood. You can grab a craft beer at Funky Buddha Brewery or 26 Degree Brewing Company. Shoppers will appreciate the open-air malls like Pompano Citi Centre and Promenade at Coconut Creek. And you are sure to discover unique treasures at Festival Marketplace, a flea market that stretches for a quarter mile from end to end and includes a farmer's market and an antique market.
Not far from Pompano Beach beach houses is Ft. Lauderdale, which has a family attraction that simply cannot be missed: Xtreme Action Park. This indoor entertainment complex packs venues such as a go-kart race track, a bowling alley, a ropes course, a glow-in-the-dark paintball arena, a trampoline park, a roller-skating rink, escape rooms, and an arcade. And the neighboring community of Coconut Creek is home to the notable Butterfly World, a garden habitat that hosts tens of thousands of butterflies. Butterfly World also has an insect zoo and tropical bird aviaries. You can also learn how to start your own butterfly garden!
Pompano Beach is an enchanting blend of beachy relaxation, outdoor and indoor adventure, and unforgettable fun.
