Atlantic beach is great. Not a crazy crowd just a lot of laid back families and singles out to enjoy the beach. Clean and well manicured. Good access and great infrastructure. Plenty of restaurants, bars and parking. Watch the big ships and yachts headed into and out of Mayport a few miles North. Great sunrise. Good place to greet the... More

Great dog friendly beach with lots of shops and restaurants! Even though it was freezing, my two dogs had a blast running & splashing in the water. We also found lots of cool seashells to collect. There were plenty of things to do and we will be back for sure!

Great place to stroll around in the late afternoon/early evening. It was Nov, so not crowded but still nice enough to walk around and put our feet in the water.

This is the ocean. This section has soft white sand and lots of shells for collecting. Nice resorts and restaurants along here.

I was disappointed with the water in this area. It was not very clear and the beach was average at best. If you don't mind driving a little further, go to a nicer beach as this one did not seem safe.

Light jacket weather but lots of sun on that long fishermans warf. We loved it. Make sure you wear a hat as there are lots of birds trying to steal the fishermans bait. Good restaurants along the beach area.

What can I say...it's the beach! Enjoyed walking on the pier (cost $1.00 per person). We were here in January so no walking in the water. Nice beach with several restaurants you can walk to.

A lot of things to do and see. Clean and safe area with restaurants and clubs- nice nightlife. I really like the improvements to the area from my visits there a few years ago.

Gray sand and water. If you are looking for a crystal clear water with white sand, that is not your place. Very short sand area, but calm and peaceful, perfect place to go with kids. The beach was desert, it was early December, it was very good, but maybe it would be different during the high season. All in all... More
