Amelia Island Plantation has numerous amenities: Golf, Tennis, Health/Fitness Center, Spa, Shopping, Restaurants, Nature Center, Organized/supervised children's activities and Babysitting services. Nearby Historic Fernandina Beach is a 10 minute drive and has wonderful restaurants, a vibrant nightlife and shopping. Take the Mayport Ferry to explore the Bohemian Atlantic Beach area (bars and restaurants). Downtown Jacksonville is 45 minutes. Jacksonville International Airport is 30 minutes.
*Effective March 1, 2013, Omni (the new corporate owner of AIP) has made the business unfriendly decision to disallow our guests access to certain of these amenities, including golf, tennis and the Health/Fitness Center. THE GOOD NEWS FOR OUR GUESTS, especially golfers, is that there are several courses of similar or better quality - at far lower prices - than the Omni resort courses within 15 minutes of the Plantation. There are also numerous other courses in the Jacksonville area (such as Sawgrass) not more than 1 hour away. No sense in falling prey to Omni's monopolistic tactics.
