Lauderdale-By-The-Sea is a 1.5-square mile slip of land sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway. The town rests between Fort Lauderdale and Sea Ranch Lakes just south of Pompano Beach in Broward CountyFlorida.

It's easy to see why the primary activities on this slender stretch of paradise along Florida's east coast involve sun and fun. The charming half-mile-wide hamlet a laid-back beach retreat away from the Fort Lauderdale and Miami Beach crowds boasts white sand beaches and access to all the water sports a visitor could imagine. Part of the 23-mile stretch of Greater Fort Lauderdale-area beaches, snorkelers and divers love the town's close-in, three-tier natural coral reef system. The reef is home to many species of sponges and tropical fish. When finished splashing in the Atlantic, explore the coral reef only 100 feet from shore or boat along the Intracoastal Waterway. Then sip an umbrella drink at one of the many bars and restaurants that make Lauderdale-By-The-Sea a great place to live and visit.

Three airports Fort Lauderdale International Airport, Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport and Pompano Beach Air Park are located within 10 miles of Lauderdale By The Sea.

Nearby Port Everglades is one of the busiest cruise ship and cargo ports in the world. The port is now the winter home of the Cunard Line's Queen Mary 2, one of the grandest luxury liners in the world. In 2009, Port Everglades opened the world's largest cruise terminal, now the home of Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas, a 5,400-passenger behemoth.
