Beautiful beach, nice white sand, lifeguards stationed, pet friendly. Lots of locals fishing from the shore, lots of families enjoying the sun and sand. Nice location with plenty of eating and drinking places close by, no bathrooms available. Beach and water clean.

Great day at the beach. Clean, white sand and no rocks or seaweed in the water. Could use a bathroom/changing room and it would be perfect.

The beach was great! It was clean and free from seaweed and the beach patrol was up and down the beach a lot. there were lifeguards there and they were very active too.

A nice little shore town that tries to keep tourism low key. Wonderful parks & beaches. Mayport Naval base is nearby so there are a lot of military. Hannah Park is my favorite park.

This is a nice beach with tons of sand when the tide is out and sufficient sand when it's not. There are tons of locals hanging out and walking their dogs. Good access from the parking lots and lots of good restaurants to choose from.

We live in Atlanta, it is always nice to get away for a few days and enjoy the laid back beach life.

Very calm and relaxed beach! Nice little town right near the beach with plenty of places to eat and drink! Had a beautiful time on memorial day weekend.

We hopped into the car and ride down to visit some sweet friends who had just moved down here. We rode beach bikes everywhere! The beach was quiet, with easy access along the entire road. If you are expecting crystal clear blue water, it's not here; you're on the Atlantic side. The waves are bigger though. The kids wore themselves... More

The beach is nice and wide, there is a lifeguard station on the beach. There is a nice long fishing pier. The parking can be something of a pain during busy times. Lots of restaurants nearby to choose from.

This is a family beach with wide flat areas before getting to the ocean. It is well-patrolled, has lifeguards on duty, and has trash and recycle bins. The only drawbacks are the lack of restroom facilities and parking. There is public access hidden discretely among the houses, but only a few have parking, and that parking is limited, but it...
