Known as the “Isle of Eight Flags,” Amelia Island has had an amazing, interesting and tumultuous past, characterized by its diverse cast of Timucuan Indians, pirates, shrimpers, nobles and confederates.
Meticulously preserved since 1971, this Florida spa and golf resort set the standard for development “In Harmony with Nature.” Years before their time, the master developers of this coastal paradise included Charles Fraser of the Sea Pines Company of Hilton Head, South Carolina, and Ian McHarg of the firm Wallace McHarg Roberts & Todd. Together they set upon a mission to find the optimum fit between man’s habitat and the existing natural environment, including animal life and plant ecology on this fragile barrier island in Northeast Florida.
Each building, courtyard, terrace or boardwalk at Amelia Island Plantation resort is placed with the natural environment in mind, making sure that each structure is set within nature’s arms rather than distracting from it. The philosophy that each entity
at the resort “embraces its site and becomes one with it” remains the mission and the reason Amelia Island Plantation has remained the pristine environment it is.
