Just a nice beach, with some good bar/restaurants nearby. There is a free parking lot one block north of Beach Blvd. The Ocean Rescue HQ is right there. The fishing pier, unfortunately, is closed until 2019 due to hurricane damage.

Dogs are permitted on the beach before 9 am and after 5 pm. Dogs must be on a leash and have current rabies tag. Dogs are allowed on Atlantic Beach at any time, but on a leash no longer than 12'
