Jacksonville Beach Florida
Jacksonville Beach Florida, with its' sisters, Neptune and Atlantic Beach, are ideal beaches to visit when you need some good ol' Sand and Sun Therapy.
These three sister beaches, referred to by the locals as, "Jax" beaches, are laid-back and relaxing but visit all three. Everyone has a favorite and you may have a preference! Bring YOUR OWN sisters and enjoy some of Florida's best beaches!
The infamous Jacksonville Pier
This is more a family-oriented beach
than the other two and no crowds so if you are looking for a relaxing day, or week, or even months, come on down to Jax.
Jacksonville Beach Florida proper has a population over 20,000 residents but it emits a homey, beach town feel. Maybe its the friendliness of the natives!
If you’re planning a visit, high season summer months are best. If you come during the winter months, bring a jacket for night time.
Whatever water sports activities you can dream up, you can probably rent in one of the stores around the beach.
Don’t be timid to ask to join a volley ball game in progress. Beach bums are usually very friendly.
Be sure to visit Jacksonvile's other two beaches. They are also written up and featured on this website so here is a link to
