We have traveled all.over the world including the Caribbean and The Maldives. Atlantic Beach is a great beach. Quiet, soft sand, like cornstarch, gentle waves and clear clean water. Little cool for me but a wide soft sand beach with great sunrises. Hotels abound and a great family getaway. No cars, no loud music and no booze.

This is our first time at atlantic beach and I have to say that I am very proud to have chosen this beach. :D Parking was great and very accessible (18th street -free-) not crowded AT ALL very quiet, perfect to take a nap and relax by the sound of the waves and seagulls. Definitely looking forward to come back... More

We love combing the beach for Shark Teeth. Water is clean and their isn't too bad a surf to fight off. Never have any issues with others either..very family friendly.

Atlantic beach is residential and quiet. Use the 18th street walkway to the beach and to park. Nice for a romantic walk or to collect seashells.

We had a morning off prior to starting a business conference in Jacksonville so we drove to Atlantic Beach. It took about 30 minutes to drive from downtown Jacksonville out to the beach. There are plenty of free parking areas to access the beach. It is wonderful that here you can access the beach easily and for free. This is... More

We like going to Atlantic Beach, it has lots of bars and restaurants for you to go to and enjoy, but it can be really busy as well. Parking can be a nightmare and the beach can be really busy as well. If you go at this time of year, October/November, the crowds have definitely died down and you have... More

The beach was great. My kids loved it even though all they could do was play in the sand at this time of year. The water was too cold and it was very windy. But the beach was clean and was very quiet. (But it was off season) :)
