Amelia Island is one of Florida’s most favorite tourist areas and for good reason. Fernandina beach is a small city and is located on the northern end of Amelia Island. Amelia Island is a barrier island that boasts 13 miles of beautiful beaches, abundant wildlife and sparkling waters.
Fernandina Beach is the northernmost city along Florida’s eastern seaboard. It is considered a part of Greater Jacksonville and is within a relatively short driving distance to downtown Jacksonville.
This entire area is very rich with history and culture, architecture here is also something to appreciated. But most come here for the small town, southern charm this area has become known for and of course, the parks and beaches! Here you’ll find lots of Spanish moss hanging in the trees, marsh lands all around and amazing parks/preserves. Top it all off with gorgeous sunsets and an absolutely charming little town and you have a winner!
