About Amelia Island Lighthouse

When Amelia Island's Lighthouse lantern first sent its beam out to sea, Florida was not yet a state. Through the years, the old sailing ships gave way to modern freighters and fishing boats. The beacon kept shining and still guides seafarers into the channel toward the Fernandina Harbor.

The City of Fernandina Beach received possession of the lighthouse from the U.S. Coast Guard in 2001. The Coast Guard, with the help of local Coast Guard Auxiliary volunteers, is responsible for the function of the beacon. The City will preserve this monument, recognizing its importance as one of the island's most visible and beloved historic sites.

The Amelia Island Lighthouse property, located at 215 O'Hagan Lane (accessible from North Wolff Street), is open to the public for viewing on Saturdays from 11:00am - 2:00pm.  Please note that only the grounds around the Lighthouse are accessible on Saturdays.  For access to inside the Lighthouse, please call the Amelia Island Rec Center and register for a tour.  

NOTE:  Lighthouse tours are suspended until further notice due to COVID-19 guidelines.

This goes to ONE star if it's closed. The ACCURATE street address is 215 O'Hagan Lane, which is nothing more than a very narrow driveway between two private residences on Lighthouse Circle. (Been...
