Nice for a short visit

Very Nice Place could use some restaurants and a life guard would be a nice addition. In general this is a nice place for a hour or so visit

This beach is just beautiful. It has many quaint homes that are tucked away on the side streets adjacent to the beach. Also has rest room services for the public and beach accesses along the way. We just love the beach here.

Atlantic Beach, and its' Sister City, Neptune Beach, are the closest you will get to the Florida of old. A 40 foot height limit on ALL new construction has kept the Condo Canyons out of these 2 charming residential towns. Tourists are welcome, however the focus here is not on bringing more of them to visit, but on making the... More

Atlantic Beach was nice, the evenings are always a little tolerable than the afternoons...considering this lovely Florida Sun...Be sure to consume plenty of fluids and comfortable shoes for walking...there's a lot to see.

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!
