Florida's first luxury tourist destination

Amelia Island, is home to the city of 

Fernandina Beach. Once a vibrant, 

Victorian seaport village, charming

beautiful 50-block historic district with 

many originally structures dating back to 

the late 19th century, including 

Victorian-style mansions and cottages. 

We invite you to explore historic Centre 

Street and the surrounding downtown 

district filled with our many eclectic 

shops, attractions and eateries.
