We came to Jacksonville for a funeral and we all needed a little time to unwind and grieve together. The quiet beach allowed us to spend hours reflecting, crying and then just looking at the beauty. The teens really enjoyed swimming and boogey boarding. We want to go back on a happier occasion and spend whole days at the beach!

Great atmosphere, with fresh fish on the menu. We loved the oysters Da Vinci. The combination of the steak and mahi, with a glass of Sterling was nice match. The mixed grill of sea food was another treat at our table.

Beautiful beach, pet friendly, and not too crowded on the beach. Parking can be a nightmare, though. Nice thing is that it is free, but it is very difficult to find a place to park. Nice shower station when exiting the beach and quaint shopping area. Definitely recommend this beach!

The water temp was about 78 degrees, the beach was clean and barely anyone on it. Visit Atlantic Beach!

Parking might be hard but once you find a spot it the beach is worth it. It's clean and there is plenty of room.

Lots of room on the beach. There are all kinds of eating places and stores on the boardwalk in front of the beach.

This was a very clean, very beautiful beach. We went in the middle of the week at the end of July. There was hardly anyone there. Blue water and big waves.
