“Jacksonville's "Spring Break" beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Easy to get to, public beach access, plenty of nearby hotels, night-spots, and dining makes this truly Jacksonville's Beach.

“eWater OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

The water is OK, but the Jacksonville Beach isn't. There isn't anything to do except the beach, there are no good places to eat, Carrabas is about it. Stay somewhere else. Not worth the money or time. Dumpy.

“Quiet afternoon in the sun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Parked in public parking with beach access - not crowded - enjoyed the 80 degree weather in Jan. No bathroom facilities but minutes away from restaurants, etc.

“Average. Mostly closed for the winter.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Everything is shut down for winter. A lot of construction. If you like off season fun, this is it. Lots of roads closed.

“Not my favorite beach.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Dirty. Not very appeasing to the eyes, not exactly picture perfect. Lack of parking and bathrooms are always an issue.
Almost always overcrowded and there is almost always construction on the high rises they keep putting up right on the beach front.
