Jacksonville Beach is a great beach experience. The beaches are easy to access, not over crowded and they are well maintained. I love the downtown area. Everything is walk-able and the vibe is fun and relaxed.

Took a morning walk. Nice crowd walking with me on the soft sand beach. Nice and wide plenty of space but way too cold for swimming.

We really enjoyed all the redevelopment efforts. The area is very clean and cheerful, with many hotels, fun restaurants, and shops within easy walking distance. The beach is very accessible. Lots to do and see.

Nice place to take the children. Not super crowded. You walk along the area with no worries of cars because we only had to cross one street. There a life guard chairs that are decorated to look like different things.

There are places that will rent them but you have to walk up (or down) the beach a bit to find them. Not far though. I passed two vendors on the way to the pier on the beach.
