It’s for the turtles! Nearly 70% of our nation’s sea turtle nesting takes place on Florida beaches, and Broward County is one of the largest single hatchling areas of the entire Floridian coast. One of the largest threats to turtle hatchlings is artificial lighting, which can cause adult and hatchling sea turtles to become confused and crawl the wrong direction on the beach during this critical time. Artificial light can even deter adult female turtles from nesting on a beach altogether. All of our pool decks comply with guidelines as we play our role in helping to replenish natural habitats and population counts for all local sea turtles. View more info about our pools.
Outside food and beverage, personal speakers and coolers are not permitted on the pool decks. View more info about our pools.
