In a region that lacks any form of hipness, Atlantic Beach and the Beaches Town Center have some degree of it. The beach itself is wide and walkable, but make sure to go north towards Mayport and not south to Jacksonville Beach. One reviewer is correct, they enforce the dog hours and dog leash laws with Nazi-esque enforcement and you... More

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

Head East out of Jacksonville for about 45 minutes and you can't miss it. Beautiful broad sandy beach with plenty of room for a fun family outing.

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.
