Welcome to Georgia's largest barrier island and one of the most spectacular natural habitats in the Northern Hemisphere. The greatest and most lasting value of the Island is its ability to change us. It is a place of transformation. It is this intangible feature that seems to be the most important benefit which Cumberland Island has for its guests. This spiritual quality is what, year after year, its visitors, residents, and Park Service employees seem to believe is its most important contribution to our people.
Located along AIA on the southern end of Amelia Island, this one-mile long, pedestrian-only fishing bridge spans Nassau Sound and provides access to one of the best fishing areas on Northeast Florida. Anglers catch a variety of fish, including whiting, jack, drum and tarpon. Access to the bridge is through Amelia Island State Park. The mile-long bridge is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Located seven miles north of Little Talbot Island State Park on State Road A-1-A or eight miles south of Fernandina Beach.
Kayak the salt marsh ecosystem on Little Talbot Island. This is one of the most diverse in the world. It is the nursery for most of the fish found in the ocean. Northeast Florida is part of the East Coast flyway for migrating birds of many species. We frequently see pelicans, egrets, herons, wood storks, terns, and various shore birds as well as other migrating birds. In the water we may see dolphins, manatees, otters, rays, and other fish.
The island provides a number of options from rugged trails winding past century-old, moss-laden live oaks and natural waterways to smooth scenic coastal paths. If you didn’t bring your own bike, rentals are available throughout the island and guided bicycle tours are offered at some locations. One of the trail options on the northern tip of Amelia Island is Fort Clinch State Park, offering six miles of exciting trails under magnificent tree canopies where riders may catch an occasional glimpse of white tail deer and other wildlife.If you want to ride with the sound of the ocean waves in the background, Amelia Island invites you to pedal along her 13 miles of coastline for a true island experience. No matter which paths you choose to pedal, a unique view of Amelia Island awaits. http://www.mapmyride.com/us/fernandina-beach-fl/
