Why Jacksonville’s Beaches are Some of the Best in Florida

The Beaches found in the Greater Jacksonville Area are known as Atlantic Beach,
Neptune Beach, Jacksonville Beach and Ponte Vedra Beach. They are all similar in a
way, but have some features and characteristics that make them different from one
another, which are important to consider when choosing where to live! Residents and
visitors will find plenty to do and a variety of activities, so now is the time to move to
Jacksonville’s beaches. Below we discuss the differences between the four, real estate
options and things to do in each beach community to help you find the perfect area for
you.
Jacksonville Beaches from the Boardwalk

Atlantic Beach

Atlantic Beach is located in Duval County and is the community that is the most north of
the four beaches. This seaside city covers roughly 13 square miles, but once you pass
over Atlantic Blvd, this area is mostly residential, with a large number of single-family
homes. However, there are condos, townhomes, and multi-family homes that you can
find as well. Atlantic Beach offers a large park system that runs throughout, which gives
the area a laid-back, small town feel. Most of the homes can be found walking distance
from the beach, which makes Atlantic Beach a unique spot to live. The homes that are
built take advantage of being near the beach, which means you can find architectural
features such as expansive balconies, patios and large windows. Although Atlantic
Beach consists of miles of laid-back beaches, it does offer some nice commercial
properties that can be found on and near Atlantic Boulevard. In this area you can also
find amazing restaurants, shopping and cool bars. Plus, there are several awesome
community events that are held each year such as the North Beaches Town Center Art
Walk!

Neptune Beach

Neptune Beach is located in Duval County just between Atlantic Beach and Jacksonville
Beach. Neptune Beach was originally a part of Jacksonville Beach, but became its own
municipality in 1931. Neptune Beach is a young, small, community-oriented area. You
can find plenty of single and multi-family homes here, but very few condos. The
properties in this area tend to be older which means many properties are being
converted and renovated to give the area the perfect feel of new meets old Florida.
Neptune Beach has many superb restaurants nearby, such as Ocean 60 and Flying
Iguana Taqueria & Tequila Bar. With multiple boutiques and stores, museums and
restaurants, there is always something to do! Neptune Beach is known for its surfing, so
you will see the beaches busy with surfers, swimmers, paddle boarders and people who
just want to enjoy the sun. The area is pedestrian-friendly, so it’s common to see
runners, bikers, and people walking around as well.

Jacksonville Beach

If you are looking for an active community with many different housing options, then
Jacksonville Beach is the place for you! You will find the most oceanfront townhomes
and condos here and other single family homes. Recently, there has been a good bit of
development in Jacksonville Beach, which will give residents more options for real
estate, dining and shopping. The real estate market here is one of the most popular in
Northeast Florida because of the affordable real estate at the beach. Jacksonville
Beach is known for its fishing pier, water recreation, Jacksonville Beach Golf Club and
stunning beaches. There are many community events that happen here as well, such as
the Salt Life Festival and Jax Beach Art Walk. There is a lot to come in the near future
in Jacksonville Beach, such as new restaurants, oceanfront hotels, and more.
Construction is well underway for the Margaritaville Beach Hotel that will be at the
corner of First Street and Seventh Street North and will open in the summer of 2021.
Jacksonville Beach can accommodate many different lifestyles and budgets, so if you
are looking for a seaside property that is affordable and in the heart of it all, then
Jacksonville Beach is the place for you!

golf courses, Ponte Vedra Beach is a fantastic choice. Ponte Vedra Beach is known for
expansie oceanfront estates that are nothing short of luxurious. You can also find
condos and townhomes and other single family homes of different styles and sizes. One

tournaments in the world. Marsh Landing Country Club is also in Ponte Vedra Beach
and is known for its expansive marsh, deep water access, and golf and Intracoastal
views. This community is one of the most sought out communities in the Jacksonville
area because of its exclusivity, award winning St. Johns County School district, and
ease of access to JTB for those who have to journey into town for work. Ponte Vedra
