Light House Point as a waterfront community attracts owners with sail boats that need fast ocean access and no fixed bridges. One of the key points which is distance and time to the outlet The community also provides A Yacht Basin, Sail Boat Club an attraction to many that desire programs and social activities.

I live in Pompanos Beach, and we feel quite safe. I would make my decision based on the home you are looking at knowing you are getting a quality in lifestyle in either location.
price is per square foot are slightly higher in Lighthouse Point but many of the properties there have newer amenities and more of a direct access to the inlet but then again Pompano has many canals that lead quickly to the intercoastal with some very nice home double.
