Mayport, a part of the Jacksonville Beaches communities, is located between Naval Station Mayport and the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida. Although Mayport is a small town, it offers astounding opportunities for nature lovers and wilderness adventure seekers being surrounded by beaches, waterways and wetlands. As part of the greater Jacksonville community, Mayport is also expected to benefit from the area's growth, fueled by a continued migration of new residents to the area.
Mayport is a great destination for boaters because it provides access, not only to the St. Johns River but also to Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean. Mayport Boat Ramp and Morningstar Marinas provide adequate launch facilities to boaters-especially fishers- who relish the unbroken stretch of calm water and coastal scenery in the Intercoastal waterway. Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park, a few miles south of Mayport, provide access to a beautiful stretch of the Atlantic coast that offers one of the premier surfing spots in northeast Florida.
Many of the area's jobs are found at Naval Station Mayport, one of the area's three major Navy installations. The base is home to a busy seaport along with an air facility.
