There were nice waves and the people on the beach were nice enough, everyone kept to themselves mostly. The water felt nice and cool.

Parking can be a bit iffy, but, there are plenty of access walkways over the low dunes leading from the land side to the beach side Up and down 3rd. Street, the main... More

Clean environment with lots of area for family activities. Less crowded, located in a very quiet neighborhood next to many city attractions. Lots of access from surrounding neighborhood. A perfect place for family or group picnics.

I absolutely love this beach area! It is very much like the beach towns I grew up going to. We have been there several times the last couple of years and the people are so friendly, the restaurants great, the beach clean....we are thinking of retiring there!

After driving past too many fancy homes which did not allow beach access on the A1A. I was getting kind of frustrated with the Florida coast. But then found the public area at the Jacksonville beach. It was lovely. I walked into and along the water for quite a while as it soothed by soul. It was wonderful being in... More
