Amelia Island, Florida
Displaying wealth of natural beauty and history, Amelia Island continually inspires. The popular island is a part of the Sea Islands, a chain of barrier islands on Florida’s Atlantic coast. Outside of the main hub, Fernandina Beach, the island offers wide-open space, miles of quiet beaches and an environment of rivers, greenways and marshes home to wildlife, birdlife and marine creatures. Spend your time here exploring the historic district of Fernando Beach where independent shops stretch along the harbour-front, dine on local seafood and farm-to-table fare in the district’s restaurants, and get involved in outdoor activities like e-bike tours, guided hikes, golf, kayaking and sailing. You can arrange a private nature tour, ride along the beach on horseback and visit the heritage-rich Amelia Island Lighthouse. The diverse offering of accommodation here includes The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, which sits right on the beachfront.
