Located off the northeastern-most tip of Florida on the Atlantic Ocean, and separated from Georgia only by the Cumberland Sound, Amelia Island is centrally located and just 30 miles from the Jacksonville International Airport. Thirteen miles long and two miles wide, the northern and southern tips of the island are park preserves, which make up nearly 10 percent of the entire island. Amelia Island is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway, strong-currented Nassau Sound and one of the East’s largest and deepest inlets – Cumberland Sound.

Touring by bike is the perfect way to enjoy Amelia Island and its natural beauty.

The Amelia Island Trail runs from Peters Point Beachfront Park to Amelia Island State Park in the city of Fernandina Beach. Much of the paved, tree-lined route parallels Highway A1A, a scenic byway, and the trail is part of the East Coast Greenway, a growing trail network stretching from Florida to Maine.

Florida's first luxury tourist destination, Amelia Island, is home to the city of Fernandina Beach. Once a vibrant, Victorian seaport village, charming downtown Fernandina Beach escaped the commercialization of the 20th century. Today, the town boasts a beautiful 50-block historic district with many originally structures dating back to the late 19th century, including Victorian-style mansions and cottages.
