The Perfect Spot Awaits

13 miles of beach + plenty of access spread all along our Atlantic Coast shoreline=many a perfect beach day on Amelia Island.  Get an overview of  beach access points from the city of Fernandina Beach.

Thirteen miles long and two miles wide, the northern and southern tips of the island are park preserves, which make up nearly 10 percent of the entire island. Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway, strong-currented Nassau Sound and one of the East’s largest and deepest inlets – Cumberland Sound – Amelia Island is edged with natural Appalachian quartz beaches and framed by sand dunes as high as 40 feet.

And, the ocean's average temperature during the summer?  A welcoming 82 degrees.  Ladies and Gentlemen, grab your towels and sunscreens, we'll see you on the beach.
