Jacksonville beach is not a place to hangout especially during months Oct - Feb. Though you can enjoy the annual Air Show, which held at some time in month of November.

Very nice beach option. Not crowded at all - of course, we went in October - but I was impressed at the boardwalk, the cleanliness of the area, and the great white sand at the beach.

The beach is beautiful, pristine and clean! There are a lot of sea shells for the collector! The sand is powdery and soft. We enjoyed walking along the shore, and swimming in the ocean. The beach was never crowded.

We enjoy walking our dog along the beach and the boardwalk. Always nice watching people on bicycles and walking at the beach. Parking lots are available.

The beach is clean. It cost $1 per person to walk out onto the pier where you can see the beach shore for miles. The very end of the pier is closed due to construction. The boardwalk looks like a ghost town. Some buildings are...More

There are places that will rent them but you have to walk up (or down) the beach a bit to find them. Not far though. I passed two vendors on the way to the pier on the beach.
