Designated as an Audubon International Sanctuary, Amelia Island Plantation remains true to its roots today as one of the east coast's premier resort retirement communities in harmony with nature.
This barrier island sits at the northernmost tip of Florida, just 30 miles from downtown Jacksonville and the airport. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, this master-planned resort serves as a wildlife refuge and is home to one of the last uncut maritime forests on the east coast.
In this beautiful setting, activities abound - including fishing, beach recreation, and renowed golf and tennis. Omni Amelia Island Plantation presents 54 holes of championship golf and has been named a "Silver Medal Golf Resort" by Golf Magazine. The tennis program is also recognized as one of the best in the world, and has hosted some of the top names in the sport such as Williams, Davenport, Graf, and Navratilova. The majestic waters surrounding the community offer superb fishing and boating opportunities. Resort guests enjoy the Omni Hotel featuring luxury accommodations.
This secluded island offers true luxury living with a variety of custom homes, villas, and home sites directly on the ocean front, Intracoastal, marshland, fairways, and maritime forest. Send me information now!
