Anglers, campers, hikers, experienced canoers and kayakers make themselves at home at Amelia Island. With miles of wide, sandy beach, Fort Clinch or Amelia Island Recreation Area are some of the best places to catch a glimpse of a sea turtle nesting along the shore on summer nights. On the inland side, undisturbed salt marshes, as estuaries, serve as nurseries for sea life, the beginning of the food chain. As the landscape changes from forest to ocean, older dunes merge into younger ones.
