An Oasis for Biking, Hiking and Kayaking

September 20th, 2020 by David Jones

If you’ve been to Amelia Island before, you know we have wide open beaches, an historic downtown worth exploring and restaurants galore.  But did you know we also have fantastic bike paths, lots of maritime forest hiking and tons of kayaking in our pristine estuaries?  You can rent bikes directly from us and bike all the way down to the Talbot Islands on paved trails.  Or, rent kayaks from a myriad of places here on and off the island.  Want to kayak Egan’s Creek or Lofton Creek? Easy.  How about the marshes down by the ocean? Piece of cake.  We have two State Parks on the island and one is just a short mile and a half away.  There are lots of walking trails there as well as a paved road which winds gorgeously under the sprawling live oak canopy.  The Park has mountain bikes for rent as well if you want to try your hand at off-street biking.

We are Open!

It is a new age for travel everywhere.  We, here, at the Blue Heron Inn are taking serious steps to ensure your utmost safety and well-being while staying with us.  We are following the guidance of local health officials, the State of Florida and the CDC.  These measures include: wearing face masks when social distancing is not an option; supplying hand sanitizers in all common areas and guest rooms; wearing of masks by all staff while interacting with guests; implementing special cleaning protocols for guest rooms and public spaces with particular attention to high touch areas.  Our small size also allows us to minimize the risk of exposure: there are no crowds here!  So come, relax, and enjoy all that the Blue Heron Inn and Amelia Island have to offer.
