Word spread like fire and plots for vacation homes were snapped up as soon as they were marked. Atlantic beach was incorporated in 1926. Atlantic beach has never fought shy of investing in basic infrastructure, especially in terms of water, sewage and roads. This has paid handsome returns through superior public facilities.

Most remaining vacant lands can only now be used for recreation.
