The Paradise At Amelia Island Florida!

Travel-and-Leisure When you think of an island you probably picture white sandy beaches, swaying palm trees, and all being surrounded by miles of sparkling ocean waters. Well, Amelia Island, Florida certainly has the white beaches and palms. But it is close enough to the mainland of Florida that you can drive onto it and not completely realize you are on an island. To the east of Amelia Island is the Atlantic Ocean; to the south is Nassau Sound. The northern part of the island is separated from the mainland by small rivers and big creeks and to the west of the island is the Amelia River and marsh land. Amelia Island is a small island being just 18.2 square miles; 13 miles long and 4 miles wide at its widest point.

Amelia Island is a popular vacation spot for families because of its relaxed ambiance and pristine beaches. Amelia Island relies on tourism for its economy and most jobs on the island are in the hospitality industry. Many residents drive into Jacksonville or Georgia for employment.
