Luxurious Amelia Island Sanctuary Fernandina Beach, Florida
Additional Location Information
Our villa is in the quiet condominium complex, Amelia Landings, which is nestled among southern live oaks a block from Amelia Beach. The second floor screened in balcony is a perfect place to escape to, enjoy a cold drink, read a book or just listen to the birds in the stand of old trees. The private shell and boardwalk path takes you to 1st Avenue near the Beach Club at Amelia and the dunes. Amelia Landings is centrally located on Amelia Island minutes from historic downtown and Fort Clinch State Park. There are 5 gorgeous state parks within 10 miles, countless restaurants, numerous golf courses, miles of beaches, live music & theater and plenty for the entire family to enjoy.
Amelia Island is consistently rated in the top 10 island vacation destinations in the US. TripAdvisor’s Travelers Choice 2013 Winner (#9), “Amelia Island loves a (family-friendly) party! The small Sea Island is particularly well known for two annual festivals: the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance and the Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival. But there’s plenty to do year-round. Hit the beach for some water sports, explore the island on horseback, take in a show at a community theater or just wander around the charming historic district. The Amelia Island Museum of History offers educational walking tours, including a spooky Ghost Tour that will give you delicious chills.” The Family Vacation Critic (#8), “Nestled off the coast of northeastern Florida, just over the border from Georgia, [Amelia Island] is the last of the southern barrier islands that are made up of pristine, dune-filled beaches. Four major state parks and a national park are within reach of this quiet, preserved stretch of land where hiking, biking, horseback riding and camping helps your family escape our technology-filled world. There's history here, as well, with Fort Clinch reminding of Florida's place in the Civil and Spanish American Wars. Moss-draped, centuries-old oaks pave the way into Fernandina Beach, a historic town filled with boutiques and homes. Amelia Island has a mild climate throughout most of the year, growing hot and humid in the summer months, which makes ideal weather for canoeing, kayaking and sailing.”
Amelia Island is extremely bicycle friendly. Egan’s Creek Greenway starts directly across Sadler Rd from the entrance to Amelia Landings heading north to within a few hundred yards of Fort Clinch State Park. The newly open paved bike path follows Rt 1A from Amelia Island State park at the southern tip of the island all the way to within a few blocks of Amelia Landings. Whether you’re an avid cyclist or prefer a leisurely-paced bike ride every now and then, Amelia Island is home to enough trails and paths to give you a change of scenery each day. The island provides a number of options from rugged trails winding past century-old, moss-laden live oaks and natural waterways to smooth scenic coastal paths. I now have 2 new single speed beach cruiser. Additional bike rentals are available within walking distance of the condo and guided bicycle tours are offered at some locations on the island.
Fort Clinch State Park which offers six miles of exciting trails under magnificent tree canopies where riders may catch an occasional glimpse of white tail deer and other wildlife that call the park home. For those wanting to ride with the sound of the ocean waves in the background, Amelia Island invites you to pedal along her 13 miles of coastline for a true island experience. No matter which paths you choose to pedal, a unique view of Amelia Island awaits.
