Welcome to the Jacksonville Beaches
Imagine coming home to the beach! In Jacksonville, Florida, this can be your reality. Situated about 30 minutes east of downtown Jacksonville, the Jacksonville Beaches (or just “Beaches” to the locals) refer to a collective of small communities on the barrier island between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. Featuring gorgeous views and a laid-back lifestyle, the Beaches are the perfect place to relax after a long day at work.
Why we love Beaches
What’s not to love about the beach? Between the three main beaches (Atlantic Beach, Neptune Beach and Jacksonville Beach), plus scenic Mayport to the north along the St. John’s River inlet, you’ve got 22 miles of gorgeous coastline to enjoy, along with warm Atlantic waters and plenty of activities, all within a modest commute to other parts of Jacksonville. For the corporate traveler, this area offers a great opportunity to decompress at the end of each day, or even take a day off now and then and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.
Things to do at the Beaches
Of course, the Beaches offer everything you could wish for as far as outdoor activities, including boating, fishing, kayaking, surfing or just laying out by the ocean. You’ll also enjoy a wide range of great dining options along the beach, many of which may be found in walking distance, depending on where you live. A few minutes to the north, the fishing village of Mayport offers some great seafood restaurants with freshly caught fish and shrimp, while the nearby Kathryn Abbey Hannah Park is a favorite spot among the locals for biking and hiking. With numerous shopping centers and lots of beachside shops, you won’t even have to leave the barrier island for your necessities — and with a trolley service offering stops up and down the beach, you might not even need your car!
