Jacksonville Beach is a small town on the ocean side of Jacksonville in the Northeast of Florida. “The Beaches” area in Jacksonville is fully made up of Jacksonville Beach, Neptune Beach, Atlantic Beach and Ponte Vedra Beach. The area boosts plenty to do for any number of interests. None more popular than the beach itself. The coastline is 100% open and easy to access. Our beach visitors can stop at the Pier at the end of 4th Ave North. It is a short stroll down to favorite afternoon refreshment stops including the Pier Restaurant featuring live music most days, the famous and ever popular Joe Crab Shack or Mango’s Beach Bar.
If the kids are coming along, a must stop and do is Shipwreck Island Water Park in Adventure Landing. If they need a break from the water, take them down to South Beach Park to the playscape or skate park. Get out of the rain at the Beaches History Museum.
For the golf enthusiast, try out our newly renovated Jacksonville Beach Golf Club or go try a swing like the pros a TPC Sawgrass, home of THE PLAYERS Championship annually each spring.
