Water was still a bit chilly, but the beach is great. Plenty of room to play and very clean. Lots of people walking, running and riding bikes. Everybody was quite friendly.

It was January and a bit cold but the beach was still a great place for a walk as the weather was breezy but not raining.

Jacksonville Beach is a great beach experience. The beaches are easy to access, not over crowded and they are well maintained. I love the downtown area. Everything is walk-able and the vibe is fun and relaxed.

Small town but great place to enjoy the water. Beautiful sunrises on the beach and sunsets on the intracoastal marshes. No crowds on the beach in the winter and city now allows dogs to be walked on leash during the cooler season. Surf fishing and...More
