Through the ever changing real estate market, location remains and will always remain one of the most important factors to finding your dream home. The neighborhoods in Amelia Island have much to offer, from gated communities and beach views to great schools and sprawling golf courses. Whether you’re settling down for retirement or raising a family, you can find a place in Amelia Island for you.

Amelia Park

Amelia Park is perhaps the most convenient neighborhood in Amelia Island. It has everything you could want. It’s in the heart of the island, so both downtown and the beach are never far away. You can find both condos and single family homes here, as well as nearby schools. There’s no shortage of shopping centers whether it’s groceries you need, school supplies, or simply a new summer wardrobe.

Azalea Point

Azalea Point was constructed in 2001 and continues to thrive today. Located close to several elementary and middle schools, this is a great neighborhood to raise your family. It’s also just across the street from the Harris Teeter shopping center, making it convenient for quick shopping trips. Surrounding this area are beautiful Spanish oaks, some as old as 100 years, that provide both elegance and shade.

Beach Walker

Beach Walker is beautiful and soothing, one of the most coveted communities on Amelia Island. With a wide variety of homes, you can find something for your first bachelor pad, a home to raise a family, or your dream retirement setting. There are nearby golf courses and a deeded entrance to the beach that’s specific to this community.

Ocean Village

The gated community of Ocean Village is the kind of relaxation people dream of living when they move to Amelia Island. It’s located on the South End of Amelia Island, with beautiful beach views, and close to both tennis and golf courses. With so many amenities, you might expect it to be busy, but this subdivision feels separated from the rat race of the rest of the world. Here you can enjoy peace and quiet. Enjoy the two private pools in the hot summer months, and membership to the Amelia Island Golf Club.

Old Town Fernandina

Old Town Fernandina probably has the most character of Fernandina Beach or even Amelia Island as a whole. Located just off the historic downtown district, Old Town is known to be the last Spanish city platted in the Western hemisphere, and still shows it in its architecture and culture. It is in Old Town that you can find the Pippi Longstocking house. This area is close to excellent schools and shopping excursions galore, and has easy access to the beach from the residential streets.
