The beach is well maintained and the life guards really bring their A-game. For my taste, it wasn't crowded and even if you get there late in the morning, you can still find a nice spot all to yourself.

Small town but rich with history. Be sure to catch the sunset at the marina as well as try the restaurants.

My family and I visited Fernandina Florida. Love that it is still natural and wild. We visited Fort Clinch State Park and took a ride on Amelia River Cruises to learn more about Cumberland Island. Had a great time spotting the Wild Horses and Dolphins! We were able to also see a Submarine as it was being escorted back out... More

It's a lovely beach, big wide shoreline. Great ocean with fun waves. Nice white sand, lots and lots of shells. Houses and development along the beach look appropriate, creating a very nice visual character. Even when the beach was very busy, it didn't feel crowded.

Love the beach, but there are no seashells to speak of. That is not good for an avid beachcomber. Crowd was small so that was nice. Found a nice horse shoe crab shell!

I grew up in a seaside village and have visited many others up and down the east coast but Fernandina far surpasses anything I have experienced. Great food, shopping, beaches and river cruises!

Downtown Fernandina Beach offers the visitor shops, restaurants, museums, and places of interest. Some of the shops are touristy, but after all, it's an area for tourists. Free parking along the main street provides shade, as well as convenience to the area. Spend some time walking in the immediate area, then drive along the back streets to soak up the... More

This was a perfect day trip with my 80 year old Mom. We loved the shops and the history. You can find everything from antiques to fine clothing.
