We spent a few hours here with 5 teenagers. Beautiful clean beach. Strong waves. Water was cold. Maybe not the best swimming for small children. Not crowded. Public restrooms at the parking lot. We arrived at 11 and parking was almost full. You can park...More

The beaches here are so beautiful it is hard to describe them. I am originally from central FL where it's hard to find a space to spread out a beach towel, so I was delighted at the"lack" of patrons and the size of the beach!...More

This is a great beach - very wide and flat - comfortable for walking or jogging for miles. There are ample access points. Beautiful views and lovely homes to look at too!

I love this quaint island. It's large enough to offer great shopping/food and small enough to be inviting. I never leave here dissatisfied. We walked the beach and ate at an ocean-side restaurant. Relaxing and exhilarating.

The beach is beautiful, large and relaxing. Not to be missed if visiting the island lots of free parking all over the beach.

While there might be beaches with whiter colored sand, this beach is close to all kinds of amenities and is very close to a quaint historic downtown with plenty of dining choices.

Amelia Island, clean beach, no it doesn't have shops or a boardwalk like the Jersey shore, yes you can drive on and park only within a certain location at Sliders restaurant. Excellent for walking, sitting, and playing in the water. Many of the beach houses...More

You can not take any type of glass to the beach. You are not supposed to have alcohol on the beach, however, people do. I take a cooler with cans and discretely pour into a solo cup and have not had any problems. The... More
