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.

The gift shops and restraurants in the town center area Atlantic and Neptune combine is great. My recommendatioin for dinner would be Poes and you have to visit Happy Cup for yogurt \

Not much to see. Not too much neach access unless your staying here. Traffic horrific. Only a few eating options most were closed😤 Go to outer banks instead

Atlantic Beach has a variety of restaurants for breakfast, lunch & dinners. It has a great beach for families during the day and then nightlife for adults. It also has some very unique shops.

"Beachside" shop is jam-packed with items and has a large... More

Like a lot of coastal Florida, Atlantic Beach is a haven for they wealthy who continue to gobble up the old beach feel and plant lot-line McMansions. Along with the affluence comes the ability to restrict parking to near fiction with the exception of 18th and 19th streets. Great place to visit but easier on a bicycle. The Beaches Town... More

Not too crowded. Clean but your typical Atlantic coast beach, meaning greenish water. But better than Jax Beach, which is brownish green & often trashed. Atlantic is leashed dog friendly. Again, unlike Jax Beach. I will definitely go again for a serene place to watch the waves & relax in peace.
