Fun in the Sun on the Hillsboro Beach Inlet
If you’re looking for a great place to take your pooch for an adventurous afternoon, the Hillsboro Beach Inlet is known by locals as “the place” to take your dog. The beach is by no means big; however, it virtually never gets crowded. Not to mention, the panoramic surroundings make for spectacular sightseeing.
Though the Hillsboro Beach Inlet is a dog friendly beach—there is a leash law. Nevertheless, all the dogs you’ll find playing around on the beach are always friendly and well supervised. While the city of Hillsboro does offer a number of local parks you can take your dog---there’s no place quite like the Hillsboro Beach Inlet for a truly one-of-a-kind experience with your dog.

Take A Stroll Down The Beach And Explore The Historic Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse
After checking out the Hillsboro Beach Inlet, it’s worth checking out the historic Hillsboro Beach Inlet Lighthouse http://www.hillsborolighthouse.org/, located directly across from the beach. The black and white lighthouse was built in 1907 and is currently an open work structure. Located just behind the lighthouse, you can find some historic coast guard barracks. In addition, there is a commemorating statue of Florida’s famous barefoot mailman, who actually used the Hillsboro Beach Inlet as part of there normal mail route.
The Peaceful Serenity Of Fort Lauderdale Beach
After checking out the Hillsboro lighthouse, there’s another beach just a hop, skip and a jump away. Fort Lauderdale Beach is lush, pristine and virtually untouched. It’s the perfect beach to take a peaceful stroll at dusk without all the crowds. From the intracoastal side of Hillsboro Beach you’ll find a hump of sand that leads to a jetty that connects to Fort Lauderdale beach.
You can either take your time and fish off the jetty, as it’s an excellent fishing spot, or you can hike down to Fort Lauderdale Beach where you’ll find miles of quite beach, with little to no people. Because there are absolutely no access points to this side of the beach—it remains virtually unoccupied all year round. Only the occasional home owner will occupy the beach.
