Beach is beautiful and expansive. Public parking is rather limited unless you are a hotel or condo rental guest. Beach chairs w/umbrella rentals are available by the hour or for the day. Plenty of good shopping and dining options.

I now have been to both oceans on the coast and Jacksonville Beach is by far one of the best I have ever been on. It was very clean, uncrowded and lots of shells to pick up. They are rebuilding the pier that was damaged from the last hurricane, so was not able to go out on the pier. Lots of people walking, running and surfing at the beach, it was a very relaxing day at the beach. I cannot wait to go back.

We stopped here on a cold day in March on a drive up the coast. We had visited once before 2 years prior and had hoped the pier was now open.

Not only was the pier not open we found many restaurants on the water either closed for lunch or closed permanently. I am sure in warmer months it is busier.

We parked in a public lot and headed over to the beach. We found it to be very clean and well maintained. There were a few flying kites but mostly it was people like us, bundled up taking a walk in a beautiful spot. But this beach is clearly much loved as even on thos cold day there were lots of people out enjoying the crashing waves.

The beach is huge with so many entrances that even when busy, I cannot imagine not being able to find a spot to enjoy the day. Parking may be another story though as most of the beach area is lined with shops that have just a few parking spots noted as no beach parking. So plan for a bit of a walk, just in case.

Maybe next time we will be able to bring the boogie boards and enjoy the water!

This area seems to only really cater to the locals. More parking is needed and if paying for parking is required then they need to put out more signs. Beach is clean along the shore but the water itself isn't as pretty as others. Plenty of hotels and restaurants nearby for your convenience. Would I visit the beach again anytime soon? No.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn and this location has direct access to the beach. The beach was clean and beautiful. Lots of people enjoyed Memorial Day weekend on this beach. Was here over 10 years ago, nice memories. Will be back.

I had a great time! It was a nice warm day and a nice atmosphere! There were people grilling in one section in which I have never seen that before but I guess it is safe and acceptable. There were restaurants nearby to walk to and shops. Parking just like anywhere is always a struggle but once you are in you better stay or walk until you are ready to leave the area.

I love coming here early in the morning to watch the sun rise or walk late at night. During the day it is so hot and I am not a fan of darker ocean water - like to see what's around me since I have seen several sharks in the water. Love Jax Beach and feel so blessed to live near it.

Jax beach is always a good place for us to travel for a quick vacation. There are a number of restaurants, bars and oceanfront hotels in the area. During our stay, the boardwalk and beach remained clean. The beach is full of activity from surfers, volleyball players and travelers.

This is always a great place to go to. I visit quite often. I have watched many sunrises and many sunsets and I promise you it never gets old. This time their was a pod of dolphins swimming through the waves because a storm was rolling through. Not too long ago I saw a pod of Whales. I can tell you that each time I come it is a new experience and the thing that is really nice is for the most part you can visit year round of course it has to be at certain times of the day.

Beautiful beach, with super fine bright white sand. Perfect for taking long easy walks as well as bike rides. Closely monitored by life guards, No sea weed on the beach and water is crystal clear.
