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.

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.
