Point of Interest
“Located a few steps from the trendy restaurants and shops of famed Las Olas Avenue, Las Olas Beach feels like a small beach with calm waters and a family-friendly environment during the day. In the evening, things become a bit livelier atmosphere as the nightlife crowd on Las Olas Avenue heats up. In addition to chair and umbrella rentals, you can also rent water sports equipment”
