Fort Lauderdale's most popular gay beach lies where Terramar Street meets the ocean
(about midway between Sunrise and Las Olas boulevards), directly across Highway A1A from the Atlantic Hotel
. From the Atlantic's rooms (as pictured in this photo), guests have a clear view of this gay-popular stretch of Fort Lauderdale Beach, which attracts many of the guests from the nearby gay resorts, such as the Royal Palms
, Villa Venice, Alcazar, Cheston House, Elysium, and several others. This is a section of Fort Lauderdale beachfront that the city has done a fantastic job revitalizing and cleaning up in recent years, and it's now one of the most attractive beachfronts in the state.
