Southern Florida is a perfect beach getaway destination with its year round warm tropical climates and beautiful crystal clear beaches. Fort Lauderdale is home to a beautiful stretch of coastline that boats beautiful luxury resorts, restaurants, bars, and shopping. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful resort right on the beach but close to all of the action, then I have the perfect place for you. Here is my full Pelican Grand Beach Resort Hotel Review for everything you need to know before booking and planning a perfect Florida getaway.

The Pelican Grand Beach resort is located on the Famous A1A roadway and in the Northern Section of Fort Lauderdale. The resort is less than a 30 minute drive from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport or about 45 minutes from the larger Miami International Airport.

The resort is a few minutes north of all of the main bars, beaches, and dining creating a secluded and private destination for the resort guests. The beaches and crowds are much quieter here creating a fun and serene relaxing vacation.

Be sure to wake up early and enjoy a beautiful sunrise on the beach to start your day.
