Visiting American Beach
American Beach is located on the south end of Amelia Island, along A1A between Jacksonville and Fernandina Beach.
The National Park Services owns the 8.5 acre sand dune. The "Evans Rendevous" building (not available for touring) was acquired by the Trust for Public Land. The majority of land at American Beach is held by private landholders - please respect their privacy.
Restrooms can be found at Burney Beachfront Park. There are no other visitor services or facilities for the public at American Beach.
