Just two miles from Las Olas Boulevard and the Fort Liquor-dale spring breakers lining AIA, the wide, secluded strand of beach at the Harbor Beach Marriott feels eons away from the traffic jams on I-95. Once that coconut mojito's in your hand, that big-city bustle seems far away. Throw your shoes to the side and pick up the ping pong paddles for a table tennis game in the sand. Or stay dry(er) and toss around oversize bean bags for the largest cornhole game you've ever seen. Rent kayaks, paddleboards, Hobie Cats or take a surf lesson if getting in the water is the only way to spend the afternoon. The area is a favorite of kitesurfers, too, since the Atlantic breezes can pick up considerably, cooling things down on shore and heating them up for local athletes who can't wait to get on that board and fly across the waves.
