Amelia Island SP

Amelia Island State Park, Jacksonville, FL

An easy drive from Jacksonville or Fernandina Beach, 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 Real Florida. Amelia Island State Park is one of the few locations on the east coast that offers horseback riding on the beach and riding tours along the shoreline. Fishermen can surf fish along the shoreline or they can wet their lines from the mile-long George Crady Bridge Fishing Pier spanning Nassau Sound. Visitors can stroll along the beach, look for shells and sharks teeth, or watch the wildlife. For horseback tour reservations, contact Kelly Seahorse Ranch at 904-491-5166. Tours are given four times daily.

On the Line Bait and Tackle shop is open for visitors using their walk-up window, offering a great variety of fishing bait and tackle supplies, snacks and refreshments. The shop is open Thursday through Sunday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Monday, 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., and closed Tuesday and Wednesday. Visitors can contact them at 904-624-7293.
