Beautiful beach & nearby restaurants on main drag (Atlantic Ave) to beach. There are several access points to beach & Neptune Beach is adjacent a few miles south. Lots of sand & nice waves. Even when crowds there is plenty of space for blanket, chairs, umbrella without encroaching anyone's space. Parking is another story, but worth the trouble.

This part of Jacksonville is beautiful and known! There is a lifeguard on duty and safety for young children! Nice shell spots, and great views! The city area is nice for walking, biking, able to locate parking. Restroom facilities and other staff to assist. Lot's of near by shopping, restaurants and happenings going on! A must see area of Jacksonville!

This is my favorite best-kept-secret of the Jax beach areas. There is a cute neighborhood here with galleries, restaurants and a local coffee place. I love coming here!

A great place to bring the family. This beach is less crowded with no high rises to block your sun time. Great to bring boogie boards and spread out. Less noisy. The sand is packed which makes it perfect for walks and jogs on the beach.

Atlantic beach is a nice, slightly less busy beach than its surrounding neighbors with Seminole Beach to the north and Neptune Beach to the south. Nestled mostly in a residential area, there are fewer access points which can be a boon or a bust, depending on whether you prefer more privacy and quiet (a relative term for sure) or like... More
