Amelia Island is a part of a chain of barrier islands, so getting to Fernandina Beach involves lots of spectacular water views. You'll know you've arrived when you see Spanish moss dripping from giant oak trees, rails of train tracks and restored old buildings bursting with charm.
- Downtown Fernandina Beach: The downtown area is hopping with locals and tourists. Sidewalks are lined with historic pubs, specialty shops and a variety of restaurants.
- Beach: Fernandina Beach has miles of beach and stretches of protected dunes. Most of the beach is residential, but you'll find a few seafood restaurants and a bar or two.
- Amelia River: The Amelia River has river cruises, eco-tours, and wildlife sightseeing trips. Rent a fishing boat at the marina for a day of fishing.
