Let's Explore Atlantic Beach

Atlantic Beach is home to pretty beaches and historic sites and is located in Northeast Florida.  Atlantic Beach alone has 2 miles of beaches.  The location is fabulous if you like the outdoors.  There are amazing parks and golf courses nearby.   And, don’t forget you are only a 34-minute drive from Jacksonville. Atlantic Beach is primarily residential, and the commercial parts are all located along the ocean and going west along Atlantic Blvd.


– Atlantic Beach and Fernandina Beach were the only Northeast Florida cities ranked in the top third of a new report on the safest cities in the Sunshine State, based on the National Council for Home Safety and Security’s review of the FBI’s 2018 Uniform Crime Report.
