Love this peaceful beach

We make frequent trips to the Jacksonville area and when whether permits, we spend some time on this peaceful and pleasant beach. Plenty of great food spots conveniently nearby.

Let me start off by saying the amount of beach available here is good once you make your way down to the beach. The issues really stem from before your lying out. The parking down by the beach is really inadequate in the peak season. There are several entrances to the beach and this alleviates some of the issues but... More

I stopped by the beach on the recommendation of a friend. It was clean and beautiful. There are little shops, restaurants, and hotels nearby. It was quiet on a Monday evening in April.

I drove Beach Blvd. until it ends at A1A. I drove 4 miles on A1A on either side of Beach Blvd. For the life of me I could not locate easy access to the beach. Obviously, I am an out-of-downer. So there is no beach time on this trip.

The beach and businesses are unending. You can find any kind of food imaginable. Everything is within walking distance. The area is very clean.

This entire area from the Jacksonville Beach Pier down to Ponte Vedra Beach is a great place to walk and take in the local scenery. Beach is very wide and clean
