Atlantic Beach & Neptune Beach, FL

Activities and Attractions

Atlantic Beach and Neptune Beach are situated on the northeast Atlantic Coast of Florida just east of the city of Jacksonville. These sister cities share a common downtown area separated by an expressway link to Jacksonville. Atlantic Beach's population is around 13,500 permanent residents and the population of Neptune Beach, FL is approximately 7,000 year round. Weekends and holidays see each city's beaches and roadways fill with the outflow from Jacksonville's revelers.

The joint downtown area of Atlantic Beach and Neptune Beach is newly renovated and has beach access. The  mix of small shops and restaurants so near the beach provide visitors and residents alike the opportunity to shop and dine during their beach days and evenings. The sidewalks are made of brick pavers and bear the names of individuals contributing to the town's welfare. The public beaches accessed from the twin downtown area allows access to about 4 miles of soft, white sandy beach within the cities. There are many public access points throughout the two cities and Atlantic Beach has a beautification program for its residents who create and care for the access areas. Each city maintains multiple public parks throughout their domain.

Neptune Beach and Atlantic Beach, FL are both bordered on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and the west by the Intracoastal Waterway. These are primarily residential villages with common ordinances and construction so little distinguishes one from the other. Boating access to the Atlantic Ocean is by way of the Intracoastal, around Mayport Naval Air Station and out through the mouth of the St. John's River.

Visitors to Atlantic Beach or Neptune Beach, FL can tour many local cities by car.  Jacksonville, one of the largest cities in Florida is about 15 minutes away. The beach town of Jacksonville Beach is just south of Neptune Beach. The historic city of St. Augustine is about hour south and Amelia Island and Fernandina Beach about hour north. This area can be accessed best by aircraft from the Jacksonville International Airport (30 minutes).
