“A Fine Beach Community”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Live here from 1982. Very pleasant small town, beach generally clean with multiple accesses. Surf sometimes high and dangerous; comply with lifeguards and safety flags.
I am very happy that we moved here. Town has a wide variety of restaurants, a very interesting history and good local shopping.

“A gem in North East Florida”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Fernandina Beach is a charming town located on Amelia Island. Lots of nice shops and restaurants. If you drive along route A1A you will miss the town so once you are on the island aim for 8th Street and you will then find the main street.

“A wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

For someone that has been coming here all their life, what's not good to say about Fernandina Beach. It's is one of the best places on the Atlantic Ocean...and still warm enough in September!!

“quaint town-a day trip at best”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

If you can, take the river boat tour and shop at some of their stores on the main street. It's not that interesting a place, but it is safe to walk through and the people are very friendly.

“A real Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Our 1st visit to Fernandina Beach...a real find..like going back to the way Florida used to be! A small island with a historic 50 block area..many restaurants..and beaches everywhere. The trolly tour is a must to get a good background of the history of the island. Also a few hours in the Local museum is a great rainy day thing. A visit to the Palace saloon is worthwhile.
