Hallandale Beach, Florida is located along the Atlantic coastline of Florida in Broward County, and is considered one of the fastest growing cities in the county. This relaxing city is well-loved by many vacationers who eventually retire in this beautiful beach community, partly because of a variety of activities that cater to an upscale lifestyle.
In 1947, Hallandale Beach was just called Hallandale, because the city did not have any beachfront property. But, this changed when the city annexed some of the unincorporated land that was adjacent to the Atlantic coastline.
In 1999, the city’s name was changed to Hallandale Beach. There are north and south portions of Hallandale Beach; and like any typical Florida beach, you can expect a beautiful day of playing on the sand and in the surf.
Staying at the beach can be an all-day affair, since there’s fabulous nearby eateries close to the beach. The north end of the beach has the Beachside Cafe, and the south end offers food concessions along with a sit-down restaurant, Joseph’s on the Water.
Parking, showers, and restrooms are available both on the north and south ends of Hallandale Beach. There is also a pavilion, playground, bocce ball courts, and lifeguards at the south end of the beach, and there is sand volleyball at the north end of the beach.
Things To Do
The beach is the perfect place to enjoy the Florida east coast. It is great for swimming, building sandcastles, looking for shells, playing volleyball, or working on your tan. This area is also well known as a hotspot for deep sea fishing, boating, and golfing.
Hallandale Beach has plenty to offer families, couples, friends and everyone looking to have a great vacation.
