Being from the Northeast, I was shocked that you can swim in the ocean here in November and it is warmer and more comfortable than Cape Cod in August. Nice waves, friendly people, enough beachy stuff to do, and really fine, clean beaches. Oh...and you...More

We drove along from Jacksonville Beach to where Neptune Beach meets Atlantic Beach. We saw some cute stores but decided to driver around. We spent an hour looking for anywhere else that looked even half as cute. Finding none, we went back and enjoyed popping...More

Who doesn't love the beach? This is a clean, family friendly beach. I love going at sunrise- usually only a few locals jogging or walking their dogs and a couple photographers too. Go often! This is a great beach.

More of a residential beach community than a tourist destination. Hanna Park nearby for nature trail and beach. Shopping center in Neptune Beach Town center is very close. Navy base is close too.

It was a nice beach with good sand expanses but that is about it as it was typical of the beaches along this coast.

We went for a stroll along the beach and enjoyed the fresh air. The beach was clean. Would go back on a future trip.

Nice quiet beach, parking your car is easy and not to long of a walk to the beach. The beach was not crowded.

Atlantic, Neptune and Jax beach are well kept secrets. The beach is wide and the sand is attractive. Atlantic Beach has the beach center with several shops and restaurants...more suited to adults as there are not a lot of specific child activities.

at the entrance to the beach, on the left side is One Ocean, contemporary and more upscale than most in these parts. You do not have to stay there to go in to the bar with a slickly designed dining area or eat on the very... More

Don't do it. From downtown Jacksonville to Hannah Park on a Friday afternoon will take two hours, if you know where you're going. It will even be difficult to go straight to Atlantic Beach at the foot of Atlantic Boulevard... More
