Very nice beach with a lot of nice places near by to shop and eat in. We visted during spring break but nothing seemed out of control or too crazy.

The Atlantic Beach area of Jacksonville is a wonderful place to spend the day. Not overcrowded, great views of the ocean and good restaurants and shopping nearby. Our family loves the beach.

Most of the beaches were not pet friendly so we drove around and found this one. Parking may be a challenge but it is worth the search. We enjoyed our time collecting sea shells, playing with the dog and enjoying the weather. Water was cold for the season but we had a grand time

This is one of few local beaches that allow leashed pets during the day. It is clean, lined with homes yet has plenty of public access. The downside to this beach is the lack of public parking making it necessary to park in front of someone's home.

I like the activity around beach towns, it just feels so exciting! All different kinds of folks to meet & talk to, lots of things to do and see! Theres really nothing I don't like about this area, I come here as often as I can to fish, relax and hang out. Georges Music sponsors a free 3 day festival... More

We walked the beach looking for shells. The beach is beautiful. Just as nice as Daytona, but without all of the commercialization and congestion. Would definitely make a return trip in summer to enjoy the ocean.

Can't go wrong with the quaintness and the abundance of restaurants and shops. Josephs Pizza was amazing.

You can't go wrong with the beach. A good trip if you are in the area. Plenty of public access and places to eat and drink. It has a fishing pier and if you want to walk the beach and find shells this is the beach.
