The Area

Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and beautiful salt water marshes, Amelia Island is Florida’s most northeastern barrier island, also known as Florida’s First Coast. Fort Clinch State Park borders the northern end of the island where you can bike on the beaches and hunt for prehistoric shark teeth. Amelia Island State Park borders the southern end where you can explore white sandy beaches by horseback. Enjoy a round of golf on one of six championship golf courses or practice your serve at an award-winning tennis facility. Take in the shops at Amelia Plantation, which includes exclusive boutiques and fine dining. Feeling adventuresome? Jacksonville and all its city offerings are just a short twenty minute ride south. It’s all here, just waiting for you to enjoy.
