For those who love the water, Fernandina Beach is a mariner’s paradise with adjoining local waterways — the Amelia River/intracoastal, Cumberland Sound and Atlantic Ocean (plus Egans Creek within the island).
Walk over a drawbridge, through a tunnel to travel back in time to the year 1864 at Civil War-era fort in Fernandina. See one of America’s most well-preserved 19-century fortresses.
Fernandina Beach is home to the Amelia Island Lighthouse, guiding mariners since before Florida was a state. Designed by Winslow Lewis, the Amelia Island Lighthouse circa 1838 has a double-walled tower and Third-Order Fresnel lens.
