Peters Point is a very accessible Amelia Island beach with lots of parking, and indoor and outdoor showers, pavillions, and picnic tables. It very close to the Riz Carlton Hotel. Bathroom and beach were respectably clean.

Technically No. However there is camping in the parking area. We have seen camping on the beach but the Sheriff's department may ask you to leave. This area is heavily patrolled.
