Fernandina Beach

After a great day of fishing or cruising, relax at one of the many excellent restaurants in lovely downtown Fernandina Beach! Fernandina Beach is 1800's seaside village, and many of the historical homes have been restored and are homes, eating establishments, shops, and more! Located on Amelia Island, Fernandina Beach is situated approximately 35 miles north of Jacksonville, in northeast Florida. Everything you could wish for is close at hand in this quaint location. On the Atlantic side of the island you find white sandy beaches on which you can find many different varieties of shells and even sharks' teeth! This is truly one of the most beautiful locations in Florida, and some of the friendliest people anywhere.
