Amelia Island is one of USA's few unspoiled island paradises. It is located in the southernmost part of a chain of Atlantic coast (East Coast USA) barrier islands, stretching from the states North Carolina down to Florida.
Amelia's rich history, 13 miles of lush, natural setting, uncrowded beaches, moss-covered oaks, unparalleled vacation experience (boating, fishing, golfing), stunning sunrises and sunsets, friendly "locals", make this island more than just a place to visit. Fernandina Beach is the birthplace of the contemporary shrimping industry and most days shrimp boats depart its docks. The 50 block historic district features classic Victorian architecture. The oldest saloon in Florida is on Centre Street. Another highlight to see is the Fort Clinch, a fort built before the Civil War.
Amelia Island was first settled in 1735 by Oglethorpe and became part of East Florida, and then Spanish in 1783. In 1821 it was ceded to the United States with the rest of Florida.
There are a total of 7 golf courses on Amelia Island. Omni at Amelia is a resort featuring Long Point Course, Oakmarsh Course and Ocean Links Course. Amelia Island's Golf Club is situated at the Summer Beach Resort, and Royal Amelia Golflinks that later was named Amelia River Golf Club is situated nearby, as well as Fernandina Beach Golf Club, called by the locals the "City Course".
