Not that crowded during the week. Wide sandy beach. Great Sand Bar restaurant close by. Sometimes events are going on at the grass area. Skateboard park, mini golf too.

Love the beach in Amelia Island. The water was a beautiful color, and warm. The beach was clean, with many trash cans along it.

Very nice beach! Kid/family friendly. There is a park area right next to the beach that has plenty of shady areas for picnics and such. Plenty of parking.
