The Beaches

Jacksonville’s beach communities are comprised of Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach and Jacksonville Beach. Beach residents enjoy all the amenities and modern infrastructure of a large city and all the hospitality of a small hometown.

All three beaches offer a diversity of neighborhoods, each with a unique coastal Florida personality. Atlantic, Neptune and Jacksonville beaches are bordered by the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. Atlantic and Neptune beaches are made mainly residential with single-family homes and public beach access.

Look for entertainment, shopping and dining along Atlantic Boulevard and A1A. Jacksonville Beach is further south and offers a mix of residential, commercial, retail and light industrial sites. With miles of white sandy beaches and a mild, breezy climate, residents and visitors enjoy year-round golfing, boating, fishing, tennis and other outdoor sports. A variety of festivals offer music, food and fun throughout the spring and summer.

Community beach events like Friday night Moonlight Movies and the Summer Jazz Concert Series are some of the local things to do.

Although Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach and  Jacksonville Beach are part of Duval County’s consolidated government, the three beach cities voted in 1968 to maintain their own identity and city governments.
