Harbour Inlet

Palm-draped streets a stone’s throw from Fort Lauderdale Beach, Port Everglades and more.

Welcome to Harbour Inlet

Tucked well off the well-trafficked thoroughfares, stunning single-family homes where the Stranahan River and Atlantic Ocean meet.
There are all kinds of harbors around these parts. Yes, there is a Bal Harbour in Fort Lauderdale (not to be confused with the Bal Harbour in Miami. There is Harbor Beach and Harbour Isles, too. Well, don’t overlook Harbour Inlet in your home search. With access south off Southeast 17th Street just east of the Intracoastal Waterway, this classic Fort Lauderdale neighborhood is bordered on the west and south by the Stranahan River and east by South Ocean Drive. 
In total, there are approximately 100 residences within the neighborhood, the bulk being totally customized single-family homes with pools and lush tropical landscaping. You know you’ve arrived in such an established neighborhood with a cruise down its principal road, Harbour Inlet Drive (FYI and among the numerous amenities within the neighborhood, it is guard-gated). Just beyond its confines, a world of Fort Lauderdale convenience awaits.

What to Love

  • Diverse waterfront options spanning canal views, river views and select ocean views.
  • A spectrum of amenities including gated security and regular neighborhood events.
  • Proximity to grocery, dining and shopping options just over the bridge on Southeast 17th Street.

Local Lifestyle

Harbour Inlet boasts one of the most unique geographies in Fort Lauderdale, let alone anywhere you’ll find in the United States. In so few locales, you’ll find finger islands with dockage opportunities, waterfront homes with their own private beaches and homes with totally expansive back yard oases. And there’s even a church in the middle of the neighborhood, Saint Sebastian Catholic Church.
Beyond the natural landscape, Harbour Inlet has its own dedicated HOA that oversees the publication of a neighborhood directory (designed so residents can know their neighbors) as well as regular community events. By calling Harbour Inlet home, you and yours can enjoy an annual Halloween party, Easter egg hunt, chili cook-off and more.

Dining, Entertainment, Shopping

While quietly tucked, Harbour Inlet is within a ten-minute drive to so many regional dining, shopping and grocery destinations.
Just north of the community’s gate – on the northside of Southeast 17th Street – is the burgeoning Pier Sixty-Six resort and marina complex. Slated to open in 2024, the site will include more than 5,000 linear feet of dockage, a high-end resort and restaurants aplenty.
Northeast of the neighborhood and within five minutes, you can access one of the most hopping sections of Fort Lauderdale Beach. Among the restaurants to explore are The Wreck Bar at B Ocean Resort Fort Lauderdale which has a unique in-tank mermaid show weekly; the Intracoastal-facing Coconuts with fresh seafood catches; and the beach’s classic dive bar Elbo Room.
West along Southeast 17th Street and before you reach Federal Highway, you have grocery options aplenty, including Publix, Winn Dixie and, for libations, Total Wine & More. This stretch is home to a number of quintessential Fort Lauderdale restaurants, too, including Southport Raw Bar, Boatyard and Carlos & Pepe’s.
For an additional grocery option, there is a newer Whole Foods at the intersection of Southeast 17th Street and Federal Highway. While certainly a busy intersection, the store does have its own parking garage with free parking for shoppers.

Things to Do

Outdoor adventures aplenty await in every direction of Harbour Inlet. Among them, Fort Lauderdale Beach Park is within a mile of the neighborhood, equipped with a playground on the sand, basketball courts, pavilions and some of the best volleyball courts around. And, yes, it all comes with stunning ocean vistas.
For lovers of a water adventure, 15th Street Fisheries – northwest of the community on the Stranahan River – is a popular spot for boaters and diners alike. Its patio overlooking the river is prime for watching the yachts coast by as well as enjoying its culinary staples, spanning a shrimp pasta with tomato cream sauce to a grilled swordfish with crab fried rice. Another stellar destination on the water is Dr. Von D. Mizell-Eula Johnson State Park, which you can see across the Stranahan River from the neighborhood’s southern edge. Beyond sweeping white sand beaches and pavilions primed for a day-long party, its Whiskey Creek Hideout has a bar, grill and kayak rentals, too.
