The Beaches of Northeast Florida stretch for more than
100 miles along the Atlantic coast from Amelia Island to
the Daytona Beach area.
The Buccaneer Trail also known as A1A is the road of
choice to see all these wonderful beaches.
Buccaneer Trail along A1A on the north side of the St.
Johns River and going south, connects Ft. George Island
and Amelia Island. This scenic drives affords beautiful
views of the Ft. George Inlet, marshes and beaches.
Being from this area, I believe it to be the prettiest
route from Amelia Island to the Jacksonville area.
ON PHOTO sunrises for you!
