Atlantic Beach and Neptune Beach.

Atlantic Beach and Neptune Beach are situated on the northeast Atlantic Coast of Florida just east of the city of Jacksonville. These are sister cities sharing 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.

 

Neptune Beach and Atlantic Beach, FL are both bordered on the east by the Atlantic Ocean and the west by the Intracoastal Waterway. Florida's scenic Atlantic coast roadway, Route A1A, goes through both beach towns. 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).
