And this is one of our favorite places. We live across the street and love walking the beach morning and evening! Can’t go wrong staying up here!

Beach is conveniently located and not too crowded. It helps that the weather was warm and sunny (until the typical afternoon rain storm that fortunately did not last too long).

Oldsters remember the '70's movie, "Summer of '42," that was set on a sleepy beach where the few visitors sat far apart and enjoyed solitude. This part of Fernandina Beach (FB) offers few amenities and little night life. HOWEVER, if you like sitting 100 yards from your nearest neighbor, on the beach, FB is for you! If you like a quiet stroll, being able to hear the waves instead of someone's music, FB is for you. Seashells are always plentiful, as is plenty of sand to enjoy. There are numerous beach access points and, unlike most Atlantic beaches, PARKING IS FREE! You'll find plenty of military personnel, and visitors from a variety of backgrounds. Lifeguards are present for most of the day. Bring lunch because the few restaurants that are walking distance, other than the DQ, are not really bathing suit friendly. Some people exercise and some fish in the surf. Some bring dogs. A couple of manageable probems at FB: You CAN drive onto the beach, but several people get bogged every day. Don't drive onto the beach unless you are a seasoned off-roader in a 4WD! Lastly, on this beach the restroom facilities are minimal, and need more cleaning than they get. But otherwise, FB Main Beach Park is a lovely beach. After numerous 250 mile trips from our home to GA and FL beaches, we rarely go elsewhere! You won't find love as in Summer of '42, but you'll find a lovely, uncrowded beach!…

This was the first beach I discovered while building a home here for my family. I stayed and the Amelia Hotel at the Beach and often ate at Sliders before a short evening beach hike. It was a great way to end a day of construction meetings and runs to Jacksonville to meet with suppliers, etc. I still enjoy visiting this beach with my wife now that we've settled into the area. …
