There were a lot of people on the beach; some throwing Frisbees, others tossing footballs. Atlantic Beach is a great family beach with plenty of space for a nice... More

This beach is beautiful and there is a lot to do there. It is very clean and there is tons of parking available all around. Less busy than Jacksonville beach!

Ocean was nice but the beachfront restaurants are terrible no choices and the ones that weren't boarded up and closed were honky talk bar restaurants . Families stay away. Not worth the visit

We live within 45mins of this beach. It's a beautiful beach. Clean and the sand is really soft. It is more of locals beach and not really touristy.

Really one of the best kept secrets in America as far as beaches go. A truly wonderful beach with by far the easiest access to the beach and not so many people to where you can really enjoy yourself.

This beach which is also part of Jacksonville, is absolutely beautiful, private, not as much riffraff as Jacksonville Beach.
