Welcome to Pompano Beach

Enjoy the warmest waters and calming breezes in the heart of Florida's Gold Coast
Pompano Beach, Fla., lies north of Fort Lauderdale and is widely known for its marinas, offshore coral reef, and beaches. The town was first settled by farmers and eventually consolidated with the adjacent beach in 1947 as the city of Pompano Beach. Today the town is a tourist hub with a significant economic presence in the produce wholesaling and manufacturing industries.
One of Pompano Beach’s unique features is an Intracoastal Waterway that passes through the town, separating the mainland and the barrier beaches. This beachy city also includes a long pier that stretches into the Atlantic Ocean, two international airports, and several internal seaports.
Pompano Beach is a thriving community with excellent boating and fishing activities accentuated by an offshore living coral reef accessible to snorkelers and scuba divers. Besides its history, charm, and status as one of Florida's warmest cities, Pompano Beach is part of Broward County, providing residents accessibility to over 50,000 businesses.
