Step inside Florida to its northeastern most beach at main beach park, paved parking around 100 spots. Nearby salt life bar and grill. Soak the sun, world famous crab races by mister crabs, some nice rocky spots for pics. Shops within walking distance

Main Beach is the best place to come for a day at the beach on Amelia Island. There are two good restaurants, Sandbar and Salt Life, one Putt-Putt, a skateboarding park, beach volleyball, picnic tables, small boardwalk, bathrooms, outdoor shower, and... LOADS of PARKING.

Amelia Island beaches are pristine! No matter where you go you can walk the beaches collecting seashells or walking up to Sliders for a tropical drink and music!

We have visited the main beach a number of times in the past few years. It's always been clean and well maintained. Since our last visit the beach had changed it's profile somewhat. I'm assuming it was due to last years hurricane. Sections of the...More
