We visited the north end and the middle beach areas both. The north beach area has more parking and is less crowded. Both areas had restrooms close and free parking. You can drive & park on the beach ($5 park pass required) from the middle beach area. We flew here so we rented umbrella and chairs from Beach Rentals and More for $21 per day. No multiple day discounts but you didn't have to return them until 5pm on the last day of your rental. Plenty of lifeguards and family friendly. There could be a few more trash cans available but that is a small inconvenience .

My family and I visited Fernandina Beach while on a 4 day vacation on the island. We loved the quaint village with all the nice shops and the marina with the beautiful boats and yachts. We were even able to see a beautiful sunset over the bay. Love the water view restaurant at the marina also. We plan to return to Amelia Island and definitely visit Fernandina Beach again. We were not able to go on one of the day cruises this trip but will put it on the top of our to do list on our next trip.

Beautiful beaches. Rode bikes all over the island. Lots of history. Stayed at beach side. Nice beach store Beach Rentals and More. They have everything you would need for a day at the beach. Stand up paddle boards were awesome. They set us up with bait and tackle for some surf fishing. Great beach store and wonderful island.

Clean and spacious and wonderful long vistas for walking. Soft sand and gentle waves and beautiful sunrises!

Great place to dine when traveling to Amelia Island and you'd like to get away from the resorts. Good selection of restaurants and some nightlife.
