Pompano BeachUnited States of America

Explore the shops, restaurants and galleries of this historic downtown precinct or head to the water to fish, dive and swim at one of Florida’s favorite beaches.

After a long period of redevelopment, the pristine beachfront and fascinating historic district of the Pompano Beach waterfront community has become one of the most popular vacation destinations in Florida. Find it on the edge of the municipality of Miami.

Recently Pompano Beach has been named by numerous leading real estate magazines as one of the best vacation rental destinations in the country. Pompano Beach has all the luxuries that come with beachfront Florida living. Enjoy fine dining, excellent shopping, perfect fishing conditions and white sand beaches just a short drive from the center of Miami.

Explore the city streets on foot or aboard the efficient public bus system to find the best shopping and dining options for your interests. Visit the historic downtown precinct to see fascinating architecture and modern buildings side by side. Stop at some of the city’s many galleries and theaters, including the Meridian Gallery and the Curtain Call Playhouse, for a cultural activity before you move to the beach.

Set yourself up with an umbrella and beach chair from one of the waterfront vendors. Lifeguards patrol large parts of the beach so you can relax with the knowledge that your family will be safe swimming. Walk along the 1,000-foot- (305-meter-) long Pompano Beach Pier to watch locals fishing or rent your own rod and cast out yourself. Pompano Beach is known for its excellent boating opportunities. Rent a yacht, fishing boat or Jet Ski to see the coast at your own pace.

Onboard, dive the offshore coral reef or spend the day with a drink in your hand as you wait for a fish to bite. Back on dry land, grill your day’s catch in one of the many parks that line the shore. Look for the picnic areas and public grills that can be found throughout Pompano Beach.

Reach Pompano Beach by car or bus from Miami. Look for a wide range of accommodation options in the area catering to a range of budgets.

Rave reviews on yelp are true! The octopus is amazing. The tenderloin souvlaki was as good as in Athens or Herakleion. The service is great, as is the cheerful Greek ambient the restaurant has. We will definitely come back, specially for the octopus!

Pompano Beach needs to work on remodeling the city. We have a beach and yet no one I know wants to live in Pompano. We need to better the neighborhoods and have a nicer strip on the beach filled with restaurants like Fort Lauderdale or Miami Beach.
