Just northeast of Jacksonville, Florida, you’ll find one of the Sunshine State’s prettiest scenes on Amelia Island— a barrier island with 13 miles of pristine beaches, sand dunes, maritime forests, and a year-round schedule of events that keep the whole family entertained.
The Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort on the southern tip of the island serves as the perfect anchor for your island getaway. The luxury resort hosts 249 oceanfront room with private balconies overlooking the sea, and a range of amenities from hiking trails and crab grabbing, to spa treatments, shops, and nine restaurants.
Among the eateries is Marché Burette, chef Jerry Helminski’s French-influenced market, where guests can order the quiche of the day or build custom six packs from a selection of local brews. And with the resort’s location, tucked between beach and marsh, you can wake up to the sunrise over the Atlantic and watch the sun set over the marshes.
