Just west of the Beaches and east of the city, the Intracoastal Waterway area is one of the more unique places in Jacksonville, and unlike any other in Northeast Florida.

Looking out over the lush, golden marshes, exotic wildlife and tranquil waters, of the area known as the Intracoastal West, you will see why it is one of the more comfortable and serene places which so many people call home.

The Intracoastal area residents enjoy a cooler climate, as well as beautiful sunrises that break over the Atlantic Ocean just a few miles east and sunrises that bounce off of the golden foliage of the winding marshes of the Intracoastal Waterway. The area is surrounded by rapidly growing parts of Jacksonville including developments such as Queen’s Harbour Yacht & Country Club, Pablo Bay, Highland Glen and Bentwater Place which are near San Pablo Road and Queen’s Harbour, Butler and Atlantic boulevards.

The neighborhoods in and around the Intracoastal area range from moderate homes starting at $175,000 to gated country-club communities with homes up to $2 million and more. The area offers quite a variety of housing options including apartments, condominiums, townhomes and houses. Some of the more extravagant developments include Bentwater Place with homes from $150,000 to $199,000, Pablo Bay which offers homes ranging from $200,000 to $299,000, and Highland Glen, which offers home from $300,000 and higher.

Easy access to just about anywhere in Jacksonville is another perk to the area. Just west of the Intracoastal is plenty of shopping, restaurants, schools and entertainment to suit the needs of many. Those who have a love for water sports have easy access to the Intracoastal for boating, kayaking, canoeing, fishing and a short drive to surf in the Atlantic Ocean.
