Ultimate Beaches Guide: Atlantic Beach is a terrific beach to explore with families. Bull Park is located just a few blocks from the ocean and offers a sand-free picnic zone or alternate play area (shaded playground!) if you or your little one needs a break from the sand and surf. There is not a lot of parking located near the beach, so your best bet is to find parking at either Jack Russell Park, Bull Park, or the town center area and walk to the ocean. From most of the Atlantic Beach public access points, you are a short to medium size walk to the Beaches Town Center, which is one of my favorite spots year round. You can find lovely local dining options like the Ragtime Café, Joseph’s, Southern Grounds, and Al’s Pizza.
