Amelia Island FL 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.
Island's rich history, 13 miles of lush, natural setting, uncrowded beaches, moss-covered oaks, unparalleled vacation experience (boating, fishing, golfing), stunning sunrises and sunsets, and the friendly "locals" make Amelia Island more than just a leisure travel destination. Fernandina Beach is the birthplace of the contemporary shrimping industry and most days shrimp boats depart from its docks. The 50-block historic district features classic Victorian-style architecture. Florida's oldest saloon is on Centre Street. Another must-see landmark is Fort Clinch (built before the Civil War).
The island was first settled in 1735 by the British soldier James Edward Oglethorpe (1696-1785) and became part of East Florida (then Spanish territory) in 1783. In 1821 it was ceded to the USA with the rest of the state. The island has a total of 7 premium golf courses. The resort Omni at Amelia has 3 - Long Point, Oakmarsh and Ocean Links. Island's Golf Club is at the Summer Beach Resort. Amelia River Golf Club is nearby, as well as Fernandina Beach Golf Club.
