Are you looking for a “best kept secret”? Well, Jacksonville Beach is just that. It’s located on a barrier island east of Jacksonville on Florida’s famous A1A. “Jax Beach,” as the locals call it, is a business and resort-style city tucked away along the Atlantic Ocean waiting to be explored. If you are ready to feel the sand between your toes, then Jax Beach awaits.
Jax Beach offers some of the best sport fishing, boating, and water sport opportunities in the country. Jax Beach is sandwiched between the Intra-Coastal Waterway and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean, which gives you many choices for fun. Play in the ocean, walk, collect seashells along the sandy beaches, or stroll along the Sea Walk and watch for porpoise or the northern right-whales that winter off the coast.
Enjoy the 18-hole municipal golf course, Pablo Historical Park and Museum, Adventure Landing Waterpark, theaters, gift shops, boutiques, and art galleries.
The Sea Walk Pavilion is a favorite from April through October with weekend concerts and festivals, including Springing the Blues, The Great Atlantic Seafood Festival, Beaches Sandcastle Contest, Pops at the Beach, and Wavemasters Surf Contest.
Jacksonville Beach also gives you a chance to sit back, relax, and take in some of the best Floridian cuisine available. From 5-star waterfront restaurants to off-the-beaten-path locals’ shrimp joints, Jax Beach has it all. Bring your appetite for food and fun.
