BEACH STEWARDSHIP

The strategic plan calls for 10% of net TDT to be allocated to beach improvements. In FY21, funding will improve beach cleanliness, enhance County nature beach parks, possible beach renourishment or recovery storm impacts, execute new beach ordinances, and develop facilities necessary to provide guest services. Beach spending is the only budget to receive an increase in FY2021.

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.

on-Beach PARKING Permits

CURRENTLY ALL COUNTY BEACH ACCESS POINTS ARE CLOSED TO VISITORS. ONLY NASSAU COUNTY RESIDENTS CAN UTILIZE BEACH PARKING UNTIL THE EXECUTIVE ORDER IS LIFTED.


Daily permits are sold for $5 and yearly permits for $25. For each permit sold, a portion goes to the Clerk, the Board of County Commissioners, and $2 to the business selling the permit. If the Clerk’s Office issues the permit (rather than an outside vendor), that $2 goes to the Board.
