PROTECTING OUR BEACH

In 2018 the AITDC spent ~$1million for beach related projects including the regular beach cleaning. It also covered 100% of the local expenses (city and county) for the beach renourishment. 

LEAVE NO TRACE Ordinance

Amelia Island's beaches have long been a source of beauty, enjoyment and wonder, and unlike many Florida beaches, Amelia Island offers virtually unlimited access to its coast. To ensure a pleasant stay and preserve our beaches for others, please leave only your footprints on the beach when you depart.


Any belongings left unattended after sunset will be considered discarded and will be removed. This includes tents, tent poles (“spiders”), cabanas, coolers and any other personal effects. 


Download the Leave No Trace rack card for visitors. If you need more of the rack cards delivered, please call 904-277-4369.
