“A quiet, family friendly end of the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

We hopped into the car and ride down to visit some sweet friends who had just moved down here. We rode beach bikes everywhere! The beach was quiet, with easy access along the entire road. If you are expecting crystal clear blue water, it's not here; you're on the Atlantic side. The waves are bigger though. The kids wore themselves out surfing the waves on boogie boards. This area is not very commercial, and there are not many attractions but the beach. If you want more people and attractions, keep driving on down to Jax beaches!

“Decent beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

The beach is nice and wide, there is a lifeguard station on the beach. There is a nice long fishing pier. The parking can be something of a pain during busy times. Lots of restaurants nearby to choose from.

“Just Beachy!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

This is a family beach with wide flat areas before getting to the ocean. It is well-patrolled, has lifeguards on duty, and has trash and recycle bins. The only drawbacks are the lack of restroom facilities and parking. There is public access hidden discretely among the houses, but only a few have parking, and that parking is limited, but it is free. Thanks to a resident, we discovered a public restroom at the Old City Hall (716 Ocean Boulevard.) Bring your umbrella, chairs, sunblock, and cooler to enjoy some fun in the sun!

“Good Sand and Waves”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

It's a pretty nice beach for northern Florida. Parking was a challenge but worth the wait. We went on a Sunday and it was really crowded but big enough to find some space and enjoy the day.

“Nice beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

Atlantic Beach, is nice, nearly clear water, life guards and pretty white sand.

Because of a festival, we had parking issues, as it were not easy to find parking.

There are plenty of food places, and Publix and KMart is nearby on the Atlantic Blvd, so everything is nearby.

I would come here again.
