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

A cool day that we visited but a nice beach. It hard to find a place to park to get close to the water.

We just wanted to stop by while in the area. The map said Atlantic Beach, but several of the business signs read Neptune Beach. It's all one long strip anyway. We were near Al's Pizza. The surrounding community was a cute little place to walk and eat, tons of local, adorable places to eat. Want to return and try them... More

It is hard to describe the feeling you get when you look out at the ocean and let your mind wonder. The beach is large, the sand is fine, and the people are friendly. There is great shopping and restaurants nearby. This is a fine place to spend your vacation, so, what are you waiting on.

The beach is a good place for people to have a short or a long walk... good for kids, family, friends, and couples (to spend some private time) We went on a Sunday afternoon, it was a lot windy on the beach. Adjacent are Neptune and the JAX beach. We had a good walk on 2 of these beaches, clicked... More

I wanted to visit the beach while we were in town and this was the closest to Mayport that we could reach. The commercial building really crowds the area. We had to pay $10 to a hotel to get parking for a 30 minute walk on the beach despite it being Vetrans Day, few cars in the lot, and my... More

Had family in from Ohio who wanted to see the Ocean so we took them to Atlantic Beach November 10th, 2016. There was still a lot of debris from the Hurricane but we also saw active clean up progress and believe things will be back to normal very soon. It was too cold and windy to swim or sit out... More

Great beach and restaurants. You can rude your bike on the beach or 1st street. Has a great small beach town feel.
