Great family beach. Beautiful. Sand is the best for making sand castles. Not a good beach for shells, but a great beach for swimming and long walks. Very clean.

The perfect beach sand for walking. The sand was somewhat firm and not soft and sinking. We enjoyed the evening stroll after dinner. It was great for my food digestion as well.

Perfect for walking barefoot. Look for shells, pebbles, or just get your feet wet. Fairly busy but not too bad.

Went to check out the beach here and was pleasantly surprise. parking was free and close to the beach. Not too crowded with plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy the rays and surf.

My family took a quick trip to Jacksonville beach before school started for our kiddos. The beach was great! It was not overcrowded and we even had dinner at one of the beachfront restaurants our first night in town. It was a great trip!

Dogs are permitted on the beach before 9 am and after 5 pm. Dogs must be on a leash and have current rabies tag. Dogs are allowed on Atlantic Beach at any time, but on a leash no longer than 12'
