For a small entrance fee per car, you get access to the beach, and a lot of trails. It is a nice day where you can spend hours just lounging by the sand or playing beach football (soccer - as you americans call it)

I been going to hanna park for years since I'm not far but recently in the past few months I noticed that certain employees would charge me a different rate when I go to the park... With a car it's suppose to be $3 up to 6 person. Sometime they would charge $4 then $6, and say they charge extra... More

Hanna Park is a natural park in the midst of an urban area, but once you are in the park you would never know you were anywhere near a large US Navy base and the town of Atlantic Beach, which surrounds it. The park has something for everyone: A beautiful beach, camping and picnicking areas, recreation areas for young and... More

The venue gives you that feeling of being in a pristine oasis once you step onto the sand dunes and see there are no high risers. Great surfing, camping and trails

Love this beautiful park with lovely lake and paddle boat, kayak, canoe, rentals. Not in to paddling or fishing on the lake-go to the beach side. Plenty of beach. Great place to camp. Nice and shaded. Life guards on duty. Water park for the smaller children, disc golf, bike riding, and plenty of room. One of my favorite places in... More

Sat on the beach and watched dolphins swimming and playing around at the sandbar. There are not vast amounts of shells, which makes the sand easy to walk on. The beach was not overcrowded at all. Lifeguards were stationed about every 100 yards. I've been at other pools where the lifeguards played on their phones instead of doing their job... More

Plenty of sandy beach with shallow water for children to enjoy. A local firm rents paddleboards that older children will love. Picnic areas, toilets, not too many cars, wonderful views.
