Interaction with Guests

Old Fernandina is like stepping back into time with crushed shell lanes, situated on a bluff overlooking Cumberland Sound. Prior to the arrival of Europeans on Amelia Island, the Old Fernandina was home to Native Americans. The French, English, and Spanish all maintained a presence on Amelia Island at various times during the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries but the Spanish established Fernandina. Old Town has the unique distinction of being the last Spanish city platted in the Western Hemisphere in 1811. The plat is based on the 1573 Law of the Indies, a document utilized by the Spanish to organize new towns established during their explorations.
Old Fernandina is walkable but bike or scooter rental is available from local vendors for visiting Downtown Fernandina and the Beaches. Kayaks are provided for navigating the Intracoastal, marshes and surrounding waterways. Cars are recommended for exploring further afoot and long-term needs.
