If you visit Amelia Island, the downtown Fernandina Beach is just a fun place to wander, eat, drink and purchase! Many excellent places to dine, nibble or drink. Dog-friendly merchancts make for an enjoyable clientele along the street, and weather you want coffee, dessert, or an elegant meal, you can find it in Fernandina!

I love this beach. It is wide, clean, and not crowded. We were down at the southern end where there are some condos. They have lots of beach access areas to park in too. I love the quietness and seclusion.

We visited Amelia Island because this is my niece's middle name. We also had reservations to ride horses on the beach - an experience that we were wanting for years. The beach is lovely and we enjoyed just hanging out and watching people. We also enjoyed the horses and would definitely visit again.

We stayed in a reasonably-priced condo with its own path to the beach,... More

A barkeep from out of town, gave us a good heads up that the beach at Fernandina Beach would be a worthwhile excursion, and we definitely agree! We had been staying at Crooked River State Park over the border in St. Mary’s, GA and made the 35 minute run down here on a sunny spring day. Great, white sand Florida... More

Renter beware! This is such a lovely area. Restaurants, shops, and amenities are wonderful. There was a fun musical festival right up the street. The house was quite beautiful. This is where it ends. Right beyond the deck.Just below the bluffs lay a noisy, clanging, and lights flashing heavy machinery used in the beach restoration process 24/7... we were very... More
