The sand was very nice and easy to walk on and we picked up lots of great shells. This is our 2nd time here and would definitely come back. Lots of room to relax and easy to get in the water with sand all the way - not rocky at all. You can walk for a really long distance.

Love, love, love Jax Beach! The sand is soft and white, the beach is clean. It's a great beach to get some sun, or rent a beach bike and ride up and back.

Awesome non-traditional Thanksgiving Holiday. The weather was in the 80's but not scorching hot. Great day to walk the beach. Very clean and easily accessible.

First time at the Jacksonville beach. The sand and water was awesome. We stayed at the Fairfield. The beach was across the street. We rented chairs and an umbrella from a local stand. Good price.

Jacksonville was my home in the mid-70's. Neptune Beach just north of Jax Beach was our hangout. This area has built up but retains same non-touristy north Florida, Atlantic coast vibe. Good beaches and streets to stroll or bike ride. Same sorry surf but dedicated surfers. Good local cuisine and retail shops. I felt right at home 40 years later.... More

Very good and nice looking beach! Looks like in Deytona! Wide sand stripe for walking along the beach! The sand itself reminds me kinetic sand as in the Kids store!)) Maybe because of too much salt in it , maybe something else, i don`t recognise the real reason of it!)))

Jacksonville Beach has a cool beachfront. Something like Myrtle Beach or Virginia Beach but not quite as busy with stores and shops. I like the balance they have there. The beach itself it populated but is not too crowded.

We wanted to escape the cold in New England in December so visited this town. It's not as warm as southern Florida, but it's a real town rather than hotel/touristville. We enjoyed walking to Neptune Beach and walking around that cute town and trying out various restaurants and visiting the stores. My daughter remarked that there wasn't big box stores... More
