Sailing is in your blood. For generations, your family has taken its restless roots to the sea and set out over whitecaps and under skies both sapphire blue and stormy gray in search of one thing—a life well-lived.
Slide into your leather boat shoes and step out on deck. From Fernandina Beach, your vessel will bob through the Atlantic, leaving seabirds and silver fish splashing about in your wake. Located on Amelia Island, Fernandina Beach hotels offer solitude for those looking to collect their thoughts…and salt water for those looking to connect to the sea.
The sea is full of uncharted mysteries, but so are the beaches that surround hotels in Fernandina Beach, FL. Donning white pants and a navy striped shirt, you wander barefoot through the sand. Somewhere on the island, a roseate spoonbill chirps, and you admire the radiant bird’s outlandish pink plumage as it scuttles out from behind a tree. Before you can snap a photograph, it darts back where it came from.
Your spirits are lifted once you eye a local fudge shop. The best days are the ones in which your only important decision is: peanut butter or classic? You settle for classic dark chocolate and savor your sugary snack as you stroll back down the beach toward one of our Fernandina Beach rental cars. Perhaps a quick drive to the pier to catch the sunset will make your chocolate morsel taste even sweeter.
With the mainsail tucked away and your fudge thoroughly devoured, retreat to hotels near Fernandina Beach, FL once the sun has gone down. Back at your abode, you’re free to scrub the sand from yourself and settle into a plush robe while enjoying a glass of Prosecco. Enjoy these restful moments of self-love, for tomorrow you’ll travel 36 miles southwest to Jacksonville. Leaving Amelia Island will be challenging, but hotels in Jacksonville offer amenities that rival the sweet sips and sumptuous comforts you’ve come to treasure.
