** Checking availability will take you out of the Tropic Isle Beach Resort website to our booking system. If you experience any trouble booking your reservation please call us directly.
We are located just minutes from some of the best natural, cultural, shopping and dining destinations anywhere in South Florida. The Tropic Isle is situated in Broward County which borders Palm Beach and Dade Counties. See our top picks below but remember these are just the tip of the iceberg. Simply tell us what you want to do and we will point in the right direction.
Deerfield Beach Attractions
People say this is the nicest, friendliest, and safest public beach on the South Florida East Coast. We agree. Restaurants, bars, live entertainment, public bathrooms, showers, clean sand, chairs, are all right here less than a block from Tropic Isle. If you want to kick it up; visit the beaches at Ft Lauderdale, Hollywood, and the king of beaches “South Beach”.
Guest who want to try their luck at fishing will be blessed with options! We are located just steps from the Deerfield Beach Fishing Pier for that “shore” experience or, just a few miles away, you can book a charter boat specializing in drift fishing. For the most memorable trip try hiring any number of ocean boats that accommodate smaller parties but specialize in trolling for large gamefish. We recommend booking with BOLO Fishing for large gamefish. Their $99 half day specials are well worth the money. We use them personally all the time when we have friends visiting. They leave right out of Deerfield Beach Cove.
SCUBA or Snorkling
If you are an avid diver make Deerfield Beach your home. You can shore dive right off the beach just steps away from our resort or you can book a trip on any number of dive boats that comb the reefs and wrecks. No other location from Miami to Palm Beach offers such options. We like and use Dixie Divers. They leave right out of Deerfield Beach Cove.
Deerfield Beach is home to many South Florida volleyball and surfing tournaments year round. You can play volleyball on the beach or rent a surfboard in town to try your luck catching the waves. Fun is just around the corner!
