The State Park provides a nice beach area on the south end of the island. The area seemed to be used mostly by local fishermen who would park their vehicles on the beach and fish from the shore. Horses were also allowed on the beach. So if your desire is to have a nice walk, watch where you step.

Beautiful white sand stretch of beach. Found lots of whelks and horseshoe crab shells and even a sand dollar! Not a lot of people there in December and we pretty much had the beach to ourselves. There were signs posted that this is not a place for swimming because of the currents. If you have a 4-wheel drive vehicle, you... More

It was really fun to take our truck out on the sand. We went during the week, and we were basically the only people on the beach! There are a lot of shells on the beach, but the sand is still nice. Be sure to bring small quantities of cash with you to pay the entrance fee in case the... More

Amelia Island State Park is located at the extreme southern end of the island. It is an isolated, quiet park with long stretches of white sandy surf and hilly dunes. As others here have suggested, this is not a place where you would want to swim. Rather, it is a great place to stroll along and look for shells, or... More

Very nice clean beaches, lots of antique shops as you are going to the beach. Beaches are not crowded and perfect for families.

There were only a few people the day we went and we had a mile or so of beach to ourselves at times. Saw some people on horses and a few boaters and fishermen but overall very peaceful and pretty and a great beach for walking for miles and miles. It was my favorite beach of amelia island.

The beach may be average; but, the shells on the beach are not crushed, broken, and plenty of them. I gathered over 50 whole shells with deep colors of black, brown, multi-brown, and white. This is not a swimming beach. The beach is suited more for fisherman and beach walking.

I went to the park for the horse riding. After the horse riding, I did a couple hours hiking along the beach. It was a windy and cloudy that day, but it gives me a breathtaking feeling. You feel like you own the island by yourself. Enjoyed every minute walking there.

The state park is preserved with trials and a beautiful beach. We spent a few hours here. It is well worth a visit
