Our beach is un-crowded allowing plenty of space that sets the scene for memories to last a lifetime. Spectacular sunrises greet you on your morning visit to the beach for coffee or stroll; occasionally the dolphins will meet you there. It is known for the flat open beach which makes it great for hanging out at the beach; walking or running, beachcombing and riding beach cruiser bicycles. South Jacksonville Beach is walking distance to Ponte Vedra Beach to the south and Jacksonville Beach Pier to the north. First Street, where our home is located, is the first street from the oceans edge, a small street with character and charm of a beach side community. Playing in the sand and surf a great way to spend your days, but the fun doesn't stop there! Our Townhome is just 15 blocks from Ponte Vedra and within walking distance of over 7 restaurants and shopping. Adventure Landing Theme and Water Park, bowling and many more activities is just 10 minutes from the home and is on the Beaches Express trolley route.
