Occupying two miles of a beautiful white sandy strand with 14 public... More

Atlantic Beach allows dogs on the beach any time as long as they're on a leash. We took a long walk and enjoyed the sandy beaches.

Took a trek on the beach before Gator Bowl. It was cool and windy, despite that its wide expanse provided a wonderful view of the Atlantic ocean. Parked right on the beach and walked to it.

great little boutique shopping and restaurants. I love jaffis for clothing and al's pizza or ragtime for lunch or dinner. Sometimes live music on Thursdays (third Thursday of the month I belive). The beach is nice and there is a life guard station at the atlantic blvd and first street beach access.

Atlantic Beach, in my opinion, the best of Jacksonville's four beaches. Ponte Vedra, not technically in Jacksonville, is full of the new rich and wannabes. Jack beach is still rather Tatty, Neptune Beach is so – so middle class. Atlantic Beach is the classic vegetation filled classic old beach. Although lined with multi million dollar classic houses and Jacksonville's best... More
