A charming beachside village awaits, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway. It’s a quiet beach town amidst sprawling resort areas. Upon arriving at the beach, you pass beneath a sign reading “Relax… You’re here.” The village is called Lauderdale by the Sea, and it just may become your next favorite Florida getaway.
Our Lauderdale by the Sea vacation rentals are tucked along the pristine shores, between Pompano Beach and Fort Lauderdale. No cars are needed here, as the whole town takes up less than two square miles of coastline. But it’s not one of those “blink and you’ll miss it” places—you’ll know you’ve arrived by the colorful street signs and adirondack chairs with bright umbrellas that line the streets.
While our Lauderdale by the Sea condos are perfect for traditional beach activities, things feel a little different here. A low-rise building restriction in the downtown area helps maintain its small-town charm amid larger vacation destinations—you won’t find high-rise condos here, just uninterrupted views of the Atlantic. Public art and sculptures add to its quirky feel, and you can travel by foot, bike rental, or the free Pelican Hopper community bus.
The beaches here are warm and inviting, and perfect for anything from swimming to surfing. And Lauderdale by the Sea is the most popular spot for beach diving in Florida, with a coral reef only 100 yards offshore. You’ll find a number of local companies offering guided tours and equipment rentals, whether you’re a master diver or have never even worn a snorkeling mask.
If you’re looking for a completely stress-free time, you’re in luck. There are plenty of shops and eateries for your most relaxing getaway yet. Spend some time on Anglin’s Pier for fishing or just to enjoy the views, before heading to one of the many restaurants serving local seafood. Don’t forget to stop for ice cream on the way home to one of our Lauderdale by the Sea vacation rentals.
With incredible beach access and a unique feel, you can’t go wrong with Lauderdale by the Sea. Start planning your next getaway today.
