About Amelia Island...

 

Named among the Top 10 North American islands by Conde Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice Awards for seven consecutive years and recognized as a Top 25 Island in the World, Amelia Island is truly one of a kind!

 

 A few fun facts...

 

  • Amelia Island is about 13.5 miles long, varies between 1/2 mile to 4 miles wide and covers 18.2 square miles with 13+ miles of Atlantic Coast beaches along the east side and the intracoastal and marshes on the west...

  • The Island is roughly the same size as Manhattan, but our population is just a little bit lower at right around 25,000 compared to Manhattan at over 1,600,000!

  • Amelia Island is situated between breathtaking, undisturbed, undeveloped barrier islands, that are either national or state parks... Cumberland Island in Georgia to the north and the Talbot Islands to the south...  

  • 117 holes of golf, a myriad of national, state and local parks, a nationally recognized historic downtown district, over 90 different restaurants, numerous entertainment venues, shopping and outdoor activities galore make Amelia Island the perfect place to call home!
