Beautiful Amelia Island
Located 40 miles north of Jacksonville, Amelia Island is the northernmost barrier island on Florida’s Atlantic coast. Beautiful, uncrowded beaches line Amelia Island’s 13 miles of Atlantic shoreline. Recreational activities abound, including exceptional golf and tennis, boat tours on the Intracoastal Waterway, parasailing, kayaking, deep-sea fishing, sailing and horseback riding. Or, simply take it easy and stroll miles of beach looking for shark’s teeth and other wave-washed treasures.
Amelia Island has a rich history dating back to the 1500s. It is the only territory of the United States that has been governed under eight different flags, including the Spanish, French and English. The National Trust for Historic Preservation has designated Fernandina Beach, the Island’s only town, as one of the country’s top 10 “Distinctive Destinations.” This seaside community is graced with Victorian architecture, exceptional bed and breakfasts, a Ritz-Carlton resort, The Spa at Amelia Island Plantation, fashionable boutiques, art galleries and extraordinary restaurants. Amelia Island has something for everyone, making it truly a tourist’s delight.
