Directions

Amelia Island State Park is located seven miles north of Little Talbot Island State Park on State Road A1A, or eight miles south of Fernandina Beach.

Where are we going today?

An easy drive from Jacksonville, the park protects over 200 acres of unspoiled wilderness along the southern tip of Amelia Island. Beautiful beaches, salt marshes, and coastal maritime forests provide visitors a glimpse of the original Florida. Amelia Island State Park is the only state park in Florida to offer horseback riding on the beach; a 45-minute riding tour through the forest and along the Atlantic Coast beach. Although the view from the park is breath-taking in itself, most of our visitors come for the fantastic fishing opportunities. Fishermen can surf fish along the shoreline or they can wet their line from the mile-long George Crady Bridge Fishing Pier which spans Nassau Sound. Visitors can also stroll along the beach looking for seashells or relax and watch the numerous bird species that feed in the area. For horseback tour reservations, contact Kelly Seahorse Ranch at (904) 491-5166. Tours are given four times daily.

    Breathtaking sunrises make for an exhilarating start to your day! The park, the beaches, and the uprooted trees make for stunning scenery as well as an interesting perspective on the effects of natural erosion in progress. I bet the bike trail is equally scenic. I've found that you can have very different experiences depending on which part of the beach you visit! Smaller wildlife are visible here and provide another nice & natural experience to those lucky enough to visit Big Talbot Island State Park!
