Had a great time at the beach

The beach is well maintained, with lifeguards every day (except when it rained, of course). The only downside is I hope they fix the fishing pier, would be nice to walk out on it.

A clean beach with slightly gritty white sand. There's parking and shops a short walk away. The backdrop of Lego style "box" hotels and apartments somewhat detracts from the natural beauty of the shore and the seabirds and dunes.

The pier is picturesque. Some interesting history of the world I sunk offshore. Nice vibe and not as tourist crazy. Food options not too good.

We enjoyed watching the people paddle boarding in the chilly Atlantic during February. The beach was clean and peaceful, with lots of family groups playing in the sand. Loved listening to the waves while falling asleep in a beachfront hotel room.

Beautiful beach, very clean! Mostly locals, it's not popular for tourists but a great destination if you're looking for some quiet time on the beach. Area is full of shops and restaurants and few hotels. Highly recommended

I'm a Southern Californian who has spent years on the beaches of Orange County, but I absolutely loved Jacksonville Beach. Florida's beaches are actually very different from California's, though both are beautiful. This beach really combines the party atmosphere of the clubs and restaurants with the beach activity. Though like California, you can't actually drink on the beach, you certainly... More
