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.
