“A real Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Our 1st visit to Fernandina Beach...a real find..like going back to the way Florida used to be! A small island with a historic 50 block area..many restaurants..and beaches everywhere. The trolly tour is a must to get a good background of the history of the island. Also a few hours in the Local museum is a great rainy day thing. A visit to the Palace saloon is worthwhile.

“Visitor for 30 years! Still Mesmerized!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

There are many things in life that change but Fernandina Beach is not one of them! Have been coming to Fernandina Beach since my children were small and when I remarried- there was no other place I considered other than Fernandina Beach. The marina downtown, the wonderful restaurants and shops on Centre Street, Fort Clinch State Parl, the quiet, uncrowded beaches are all wonderful year after year.
Everyone is so friendly - feel as if this is "home away from home" every time we come.

Lots of beaches to choose from, the well known as well as the local secrets. Small town feel with plenty to see and do.

“Best Beach in Florida”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Wide expansive beach area with very few people competing for the same blanket location. The views are magnificent and the water is wonderful. You can walk for miles and enjoy the scenes.
