Amelia Island was a wonderful vacation, but here’s what I wish I would’ve known before we went. If you stay on the beach (we stayed at the Ritz Carlton) NOTHING is within walking distance. It’s about a 20 minute drive to downtown Fernandina Beach where all the shops and restaurants are. You’ll need a car to get anywhere other than your hotel and there are almost no Ubers, no Lyfts, no cabs. We actually cancelled a couple of our downtown plans because it was so hard to get a ride. I wish we could’ve rented a car. Also, if you’re excited to eat at Salt, make a reservation now. It was completely booked up when we were there. We ate almost all of our meals at the pool bar. Not complaining. Eating by the ocean is always good!

Three nights on the Island
Jun 2021 • Couples
We enjoyed our stay on the island. Loved some of the restaurants where we dined. Easy to walk everywhere from The Blue Heron. We did a lot of walking. Just extremely hot. Would return in the fall or early spring.

Awesome Area!
May 2021
Awesome quaint beach, not crowded at all during our Memorial Day weekend trip. Our hotel was located across the street and it's near plenty of places to eat. Love the area and can't wait to go back again!

Charming little beach town!
Nov 2020
This is just a great little town to visit along with it's marina. Most of the buildings are all original and there are so many different options for shopping as well as dining. We visit each time we go to Amelia Island!

Many access points to beach
Oct 2020
I spent many hours walking the beach and doing a bit of shelling. There were lots of different types of birds. The beaches as marked regarding safety for going in the water - rip currents, jellyfish, etc. The beaches are not crowded since it is essentially an island with endless beach. In selected areas vehicles with permits can park on beach but there aren't many and they are not obtrusive.

Deceptive
May 2020
Do not book a room at Amelia Island Vacations/Dunlop Properties or Terraces at beachside! The are thieves
They permitted me to make a reservation. Only after they secured payment from the credit card company they notified me they were not permitted to allow me to stay because of the Covid-19 restrictions. They refused to refund the money.
Yes you can make a reservation. thanks for your money but you can't stay here and no you can't have your money back.
I have stayed on Amelia Island before and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere but the thieves at this property have soured my desire to come back.

Weekend in Amelia's Island
Jul 2020 • Family
The area is wonderful. Quite a few things to do and see. Due to Covid many things were closed. Out of all the places in FL I found this town to be less hospitable than most. The locals are kind of 'meh' (not all of course but many).
The beaches are fun (very hard to find shark teeth). The museum is really good. Antique shops are good too. Many good restaurants with good food.
