Whether you're celebrating a special occasion or creating a new one, Amelia Island is made for romantic escapes. Here are 8 unforgettable date night ideas for you and your sweetie.

Sunset Stroll on the Beach

There is nothing better than a stroll on the beach at sunset when the sky is a mix of colors and the surf laps at your feet. Conversations are taken away with the sea salty breeze while you and your favorite person solve all of life's problems or say nothing at all. Best of all... it's free.

Dinner at Salt 

Dining at Salt is not only delicious, it's an experience. Located in The Ritz-Carlton, Ameila Island, Salt oozes with romance and attention to detail. Serving fresh seafood, aged steaks and unique culinary creations, this fine dining restaurant uses more than 40 salts from around the world to add depth and flavor to its already wonderful dishes. 

Late Afternoon Kayak

The best place to catch the sunset is out on the water and Amelia Island Kayak Excusions will set you up with an unforgettable guided tour. Paddle your way along the Amelia River for a look at wildlife and the Amelia Island coastline like you've never seen. Plus, a free photo album comes with it.

Sunset Cruise

If kayaking is a little too strenuous, Amelia Adventures offers a private sunset boat cruise (2 - 2 1/2 hrs) to see Fort Clinch and Cumberland Island as well as a gorgeous Florida sunset all from the water. Likewise, Follow That Dream Sailing (pictured above) will take you on a 3-hour sunset sail on their catamaran where hors d'oeuvres, charcuterie tray, or snacks are provided complimentary.

Downtown Pub Crawl

Downtown pub crawling is a fun way to see all the eclectic and funky places to partake in adult beverages. We have everything from craft breweries and wine bars to a distillery and a funky beer & wine garden named after a guy that wears pajamas all day (true story). Check them all out and then Uber home, please.

Ghost Tour

With hundreds of years of history encompassing colorful characters including conquistadors, pirates, witches, Victorian millionaires, and more, Amelia Island is full of spooky history and discoveries. Explore the 50-block National Historic District on a guided ghost tour and snuggle up to the one you love.

Sunset Horseback Ride on the Beach

Take an unforgettable sunset horseback ride along the Atlantic shoreline where the beauty of the ocean and its wildlife will take your breath away. Call AMELIA ISLAND HORSEBACK RIDING or HAPPY TRAILS WALKING HORSES and saddle up for a tour of the beach like you've only dreamed about. Giddy up! 

Dinner and a Show

If you're a lover of the Arts, Amelia Island is home to two prominent local theater organizations. AMELIA COMMUNITY THEATRE provides six productions each season on its main stage while  AMELIA MUSICAL PLAYHOUSE stages a variety of musicals, plays and revues. Grab a bite to eat and take in a show!
