Jacksonville Beach, or as referred by locals to as simply ‘Jax Beach,’ has all that someone wanting a laid back beach lifestyle could ask for. Though only one gated neighborhood exists in Jax Beach, The Sanctuary, this area of Jacksonville has a wonderful ‘neighborhood’ feel. Residents can live, work and play between the sandy beaches of the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful shorelines of the Intracoastal Waterway. Home for many young professionals, single and/or with families, Jacksonville Beach offers plenty of opportunities for dining, shopping, golfing, surfing, and fishing. Whether you are looking for a luxury oceanfront condominium, a new construction townhome or a charming beachside cottage, you can find it in Jacksonville Beach.
Jacksonville Beach Amenities:
By foot or beach cruiser, one can easily reach various watering holes, restaurants and shops. Oceanfront hotels, both chain- such as the Marriott and boutique, such as the historic Casa Maria, are plenty. Along the boardwalk is the large oceanfront public stage called the Seawalk Pavilion where, especially during the spring and summer months, one can attend concerts, arts-n-crafts shows, festivals and outdoor movies. If you like to fish or just watch while others do all the sometimes tedious work, you can head over to the Jax Beach Fishing Pier and maybe even have that night’s dinner in hand when you leave. With the continuing efforts of local residents and the City of Jacksonville Beach, the area has proven to be a ‘hot spot’ to reside in as well as to visit.
