Watching sandpipers has always soothed you. Their surefootedness when the waves roll in and the familial way they travel in small packs along the rocky shoreline warms you to the bone. Catch a glimpse of your favorite seabirds the next time you stay at hotels in Jacksonville Beach, FL. Not only will you get an eyeful of the frolicking fowl as they shuffle down the beach in search of their next meal, but you, too, will feel as if you could kick off the ground and hover happily above the ocean.
Although you might not become a master of flight for quite some time, you can forego air and focus in on another element—water. When you awaken at one of our Jacksonville Beach hotels, indulge in a quick cup of coffee and head for the waves. Zip into your wetsuit, the one that’s been with you since before you could handle a short-board, and paddle out into the Atlantic.
Jacksonville Beach is known for its word-class surfing, so the best way to enjoy some sizeable waves all to yourself is to rise early with the sun and take in a dawn patrol session. The white sand beaches will look all the more inviting when they’re free of sunbathers, and the morning light shining off the beach’s pier will inspire you to swim out a bit further.
Whether you spend several hours or the entire day in the water, you’ll be delighted to load your board into Jacksonville Beach rental cars and glide back to your accommodation. Nothing completes a thrilling day of surfing quite like a cool shower and a warm meal in one of our hotels near Jacksonville Beach.
After you’ve rinsed the salty remains of seaweed from your hair, towel off and answer another call: that of food. Being out in the brine all day might have you craving seafood, so pan-seared scallops with pistachio and grapefruit essence it is.
If you decide to wake with the sun the following day, make an adventure out of your early rising by heading 22 miles west to Jacksonville. Upon realizing that you have a new urban ocean to paddle through, you’ll want to reserve cheap hotels in Jacksonville with Travelocity. We aim to help you keep money in your pocket, so that your funds can go toward upgrading your treasured surfboard year after year.
