    Hit the beach or a golf course in Fernandina Beach

    As the name suggests, Fernandina Beach is very much a beach community, and many travelers look for waterside vacation rentals that will keep them near the ocean. For pristine white sand, big waves, and abundant seashells, head to Main Beach Park. It’s perfect for swimming, strolling along the water, or watching the sunrise on the oceanic horizon. Amelia Island is also a popular destination for golfers, known for highly-rated courses such as Island Falls Golf and The Golf Club at North Hampton.

    Explore the insightful and profound history of Fernandina Beach

    Given Amelia Island’s status as the only municipality in the US ever ruled under 8 different flags, it’s not surprising that museums are among the area’s top attractions. Go back in time to the Civil War with a visit to Fort Clinch State Park, or get a more comprehensive walk through Fernandina Beach history by spending an afternoon at the Amelia Island Museum of History. There are also some less serious and more family-friendly museums in the area, such as the Fernandina Beach Pinball Museum, which offers unlimited play of a dozen pinball machines from different eras which are sure to fill the air with squeals of delight.

    Good weather all year round in Fernandina Beach

    Like other spots along Florida’s coast, Fernandina Beach sees its peak travel season in the summertime; June through September also marks the area’s rainiest period. If you’d prefer less rain and balmier temperatures, consider booking your vacation rental in Fernandina Beach during spring or fall. Daily temperatures throughout those seasons still reach into the 70s, offering plentiful chances to enjoy the area’s beaches, bars, and parks. Winter temperatures can drop into the 40s and are just fine for museum exploration or relaxed family time at your cozy holiday home.

    Behold a plethora of wildlife in Fernandina Beach

    A Fernandina Beach vacation rental offers proximity to exciting and exotic oceanic wildlife. Every year, Atlantic right whales migrate to the waters off the coast of Amelia Island to give birth to their young. If you plan your visit to Fernandina Beach in December or January, you might catch a glimpse of one of these rare aquatic giants. The beaches also customarily draw in plodding sea turtles and cheeky pelicans, while Fort Clinch State Park is also a nature reserve where you can find herons, bobcats, alligators, and even armadillos.
