Jacksonville Beach is one of the "Beaches" in Jacksonville. here is an area called "The Beaches"
Jacksonville. It comprises of : Atlantic Beach, Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach , Mayport (The start of the USA shrimping industry, and Naval port), TPC Sawgrass (The Players Cup for you golfers out there) and Ponte Vedra Beach.

Jacksonville Beach has a lot to offer both daytime and nighttime.

In fact there is a very active nightlife there. Make sure to check the schedules before you go, because you may be able to catch a festival there.

The Springing the three day Blues Festival is said to be one of the biggest blues festivals in the USA. It brings in famous, and semi famous acts. There is the Great Atlantic Festival, And many more.

There is fishing from the rebuilt Jacksonville Pier. The beach is great for swimming, surf fishing, surfing (they hold competitions there) and just people watching. You can find some really cool sea shells too.

It is a MUST for visitors to Jacksonville.

Atlantic Bch is a wonderful beach to visit. There are a number of good resturants, shopping areas, and hotels to choose from. Several times during the year they offer live entertainment and festivals.

I'm a white sugary, gulf sand kind of guy. Never been fond of the east-coast sand. I was pleasantly surprised by Atlantic Beach. Wide open, pristine beach with great water and very few people. One of the nicest places I've ever been and the local surf scene is excellent.

Great beach for some shelling, a few surfers and near the hotel/restaurants. Good biking spot. kids will love the soft sand. Boat traffic adds to the splendor of the day. Can be windy. A very nice area.

We went to find sharks teeth and was not disappointed. We found a few. Loved watching the ships come and go and the surfers were amazing.
