Amelia Island is the southernmost of the ‘sea islands’, which stretch along the east coast of the United States, from South Carolina to Florida. Known as the “Isle of Eight Flags”, it has had the following flags flown over it since 1562: France, Spain, Great Britain, the Patriots of Amelia Island, the Green Cross of Florida, Mexico, the Confederate States of America, and the United States.
The island itself is 13 miles long and approximately 4 miles wide at its widest point. It rests just off the coast of northeast Florida and features beautiful beaches, abundant wildlife, and pristine waters. Voted #6 among Top 10 North American Islands by Conde Nast Traveler’s 2008 Reader’s Choice Awards, Amelia is the highest ranked island destination in Florida for two consecutive years.
