Wow, I had no idea how absolutely beautiful the Atlantic beaches are. The water is warm, the sand is a soft fine grain that is heavenly to walk on. I was amazed at the number and size of the seashells. I grew up going to beaches in California. I never understood why the East Coast visitors thought our Pacific water... More

My kids and grandkids love Jacksonville Beach. That had a wonderful time. When it got dark my grandkids cried they did not want to get out of the water or leave the beach.

The beach itself is alright, but nothing spectacular. The water was surprisingly colder than the St Augustine beach I visited the day before, and the water was not as clear... However the sand and shore was great to run around on while playing soccer.
