At the northernmost point of the Florida coast lies Amelia Island, approximately
48 kilometres from Jacksonville. Named after the daughter of King George ll, the island is
approximately 30 kilometres long and 6 kilometres wide, with Fernandina Beach as its main city. It is well worth visiting to see Center Street with its beautifully restored 18th and 19th century buildings, speciality shops, boutiques, ice cream parlours and restaurants. It has a
200 metre floating breakwater available for the alongside berthing of large yachts.
