Water Recreation

Family on the beach

What vacation is complete without a little leisure time by the water? Amelia Island offers some of the most beautiful beaches in the country.

Relax and soak up the sun. Enjoy long walks or runs by the waves. Take a leisurely stroll along the dunes while collecting shells and shark teeth, or dive into the surf for a swim.

The Villas of Amelia Island Plantation guests can enjoy 3.5 miles of private, uncrowded beach conveniently located in front of the resort. Cabanas, beach chairs, umbrellas and more are available for rent through Beach Services.

Spend some time lounging on the largest poolscape in Northeast Florida. As the most extensive undertaking of our recent Re-Imagination project, the new pool deck features something for absolutely everyone. It's the perfect hub for both guest of the resort and the villas and will undoubtedly be the first thing you notice upon your arrival. So when you're not enjoying championship golf, taking lessons with Cliff Drysdale Tennis professionals, or visiting the spa for a relaxing signature treatment, chances are you'll be enjoying everything the pool deck has to offer.

Most of our villa communities also include exclusive access to private pools.
