A riot of colours stacked against the numerous brilliant blue shades of the North Atlantic Ocean is the standout feature of Amelia Island’s Fernandina Beach, Florida’s Atlantic coast’s northernmost city. The culture of the Deep South, barely 13 miles (21km) away, and the sun-kissed, sand-drenched lifestyle of Florida blend beautifully to create the historic, Victorian-looking Fernandina Beach, which has seen colonization by at least eight different flags. Today, the ‘Isle of Eight Flags’ is home to miles and miles of pristine beaches as well as the Fort Clinch State Park and Aquatic Reserve. Come and stay at these gorgeous Vrbo accommodations in Fernandina Beach which will offer you more than just a peek into the Floridian way of life.

1. An unforgettable experience in Florida (from USD 147)

The second-storey condo is a mere 200-yard-walk (167.2 square meters) to the beach, making for an unforgettable getaway in Fernandina Beach. The condo features three bedrooms - one with a king bed, one with a queen bed, and a third with a bunk bed, a den-cum-dining combo, a fully equipped modern kitchen, as well as cable TVs, Wi-Fi, and even board games and a small movie library. The beach decor adds to the studio’s ambience, and you can curl up with a book from the rotating paperback library on the large balcony overlooking the lush green gardens shaded by large oak trees. While the property is tucked into quiet and private surroundings, it is a stone’s throw from all entertainment, dining, and other attractions in Fernandina Beach.
