About the Area

Resting just off the coast of northeast Florida, Amelia Island welcomes you to experience its rich, colorful history and breath-taking natural beauty. With 13-miles of beautiful beaches, abundant native wildlife, and pristine waters, this barrier island has long been a beloved destination for visitors and residents alike. In fact, Amelia was recently voted #4 among Top 10 North American Islands by Conde Nast Traveler's 2009 Reader's Choice Awards, making it the highest ranked island destination in Florida for two consecutive years.
