Pompano Beach, “Florida’s Warmest Welcome”, in the heart of Florida’s Gold Coast boasts some of the warmest and clearest waters, welcoming sandy beaches and calming breezes.
Pompano Beach has experienced a major renaissance and is a vibrant, sophisticated, multidimensional destination with a three mile stretch of pristine shoreline, restored dunes and tree shaded playgrounds and exercise areas.
Dunes are a natural asset and act as a sand bank to protect inland areas by preventing erosion caused by hurricanes, waves, and wind. They preserve threatened plant species, and providing a vibrant habitat for wildlife.
With the frequency and intensity of storm related events increasing, sea levels rising and the need to protect our resources, protecting our beaches is more important than ever. The City of Pompano Beach has set a goal to complete a continuous dune system along the entire coastline by 2023.
