Neptune Beach is a beachfront city in Duval County, Florida, United States, located to the east of Jacksonville. It is a community of 2.5 square miles neighboring Atlantic Beach to the north and Jacksonville Beach to the south.

Neptune Beach was originally part of Jacksonville Beach and seceded from Jacksonville Beach and incorporated as its own municipality in 1931, following a tax revolt. The comparatively few residents of the area were largely cut off from Jacksonville Beach city services such as police, fire, garbage collection, and road developments, though they paid taxes in equal share.
