Lighthouse Point, FL

Fort Lauderdale

Unwind in this quaint oceanfront town where the historic Hillsboro Lighthouse and the Atlantic provide a picturesque backdrop.

Lighthouse Point is halfway between Miami and Palm Beach, but you would never know it from its low-key atmosphere and small town charm. At this beachside community, you can enjoy scenic ocean views, relax on the beach and spoil yourself with a spa treatment. If you are feeling more energetic, go scuba diving, see the historic lighthouse and cycle along Lighthouse Point.

Head to Pompano Beach, just 3 miles (5 kilometers) south of Lighthouse Point. Nicknamed the “Heart of the Gold Coast,” this area is popular with families and outdoor enthusiasts who make use of its 50 seaside parks. Spend the afternoon swimming in the Atlantic or sunbathing on the sand. Make sure that you find a spot on the beach to watch the area’s famous sunsets.

Find one of the many operators in town and choose from a number of water activities, including scuba diving, snorkeling and jet skiing. Charter a deep-sea fishing boat to explore the Atlantic Ocean or cast out from the Pompano Beach Fishing Pier.

If you’re looking to relax, head to one of the area’s many resorts to indulge in a facial or a massage. Enjoy spa treatments and waterfront accommodation at the historic Hillsboro Club, a resort perched alongside the Hillsboro Inlet.

Admire the Hillsboro Lighthouse, which has been a focal point of the coastline since 1907 and is still in use today. Head to Pompano Beach’s Inlet Park for the best views of this historic structure. The lighthouse is not open to the public, but the Hillsboro Lighthouse Preservation Society occasionally runs tours. Check their website for details.

Lighthouse Point is located on the southeastern coast of Florida, just 15 miles (25 kilometers) north of Fort Lauderdale. Fly into Fort Lauderdale–Hollywood International Airport then rent a car for the 30-minute drive to Lighthouse Point. The region’s mild winters and hot summers make it a prime vacation spot all year long. Enjoy the beauty of Florida’s Gold Coast without the crowds at Lighthouse Point.

Lovely spacious house
"We had such a great time at this house! The pool was so great and there were 5 huge iguanas that live in the backyard! Plenty of space for a large group! My only complaint were that all the beds were very hard and uncomfortable."

"The house was close enough to a variety of beaches that we could try. It was also 15 minutes from Boca which is where we ended up almost every day. Its close enough to the airport to be convenient. The pool was beautiful and we fished off the pier at the house."
