Experience Amelia Island

Stay at our Fernandina Beach bed and breakfast, and experience attractions and things to do across Amelia Island. Located in northeast Florida, Amelia Island has a rich and diverse history spanning over 1000 years. It was first inhabited in 1000 AD by the Timucua Indians, and later by European explorers and settlers. During the colonial era, the island was fought over by the French, Spanish, and British, each leaving their mark on its culture and architecture. The island became a major shipping port and was home to pirates and privateers in the 18th century. In the 19th century, Amelia Island became a popular tourist destination for wealthy visitors seeking refuge from harsh northern winters. Today, the island is a thriving community with a charming historic district, beautiful beaches, and a rich cultural heritage that can be explored through museums, historic sites, and local events.
