Amelia Island Beach Getaways

beach getaways

Amelia Island is located about eight miles south of the popular Fernandina Beach and seven miles north of Little Talbot Island State Park. This lovely spit of land has the characteristics of a barrier island with beautiful resort homes and upscale shopping, yet harbors a healthy ecosystem

Activities at Amelia Island State Recreation Area include fishing, hiking, sunbathing, beachcombing and bird-watching. One of the most popular activities is operated by a private concessionaire contracted through the Florida Park System, offering guided horseback rides along the hard-surfaced Atlantic beach. Moments away from the bustling metropolitan area of Jacksonville, this recreation-rich area boasts close proximity to a number of other oceanside state parks and state historical sites.
