As you plan your afternoons or weekends, hitting the beach may be on your list of leisure activities for yourself, your group of friends or your family. But living in Florida, and particularly in Jacksonville, you have so many options for where to spend your time! What are the best beaches, when there are so many choices to consider? Here are five of the top Jacksonville beaches for your next out of town visitor or just an afternoon of free time.
American Beach: As part of the state’s Black Heritage Trail, the beach is quiet and removed from the hustle and bustle of Amelia Island. Escape the tourist crowd and enjoy fishing, swimming and surfing, or just lay on the beach and build sandcastles as a family.
Atlantic Beach: Relaxing beaches popular with locals and tourists alike, beach goers can surf, cycle or enjoy parks and golf courses. There is also interesting history, as its believed to be the first year-round Native American settlement in North America.
Fernandina Beach: As the northernmost beach, Fernandina is on Amelia Island near Jacksonville. It’s a great place for shopping, seafood, arts and crafts, as well as live music and playgrounds, providing fun for the whole family.
Jacksonville Beach: This beach has a lot of facilities and activities to offer beach goers. With a fishing pier, golf course, and great waves, there are so many ways to keep active at Jacksonville Beach. Enjoy the sunshine with all the amenities you could want nearby.
Neptune Beach: Situated between Jacksonville and Atlantic beaches, the small community of Neptune Beach gives you space to unplug and relax. With incredible sunsets and sunrises and a laid-back atmosphere, you can just lay on the beach or enjoy boutique shops and delicious food.
