Accommodations: Condo. 3 Bedrooms, 2 baths - THIS IS A NON SMOKING CONDO. NO PETS. (sleeps 6)
You will be drawn to the north end of Fernandina Beach where our condo is situated for its pristine, unspoiled natural setting. When one is walking on the beach, you'll be captivated by the sheer beauty of an unblemished seascape. The Atlantic Ocean is framed by an expanse of fine white sand where you can walk for miles. At the water's edge enjoy the mist from the ocean, watch the birds diving for fish, the occasional boats passing by, the dolphins and, yes, whales. Stop to talk to the fisherman/women who just caught a 'white fish.' He might not give you any of his catch but you can walk to the restaurant on the beach, Sandy Bottom, and order the local Mayport shrimp or white fish with a glass of wine.
If you want to swim, we are only two short blocks from the ocean. If you prefer to drive, there is a public park only two minutes away. We have the beach chairs, umbrella and beach blanket, all you need is suntan lotion.
From our condo, you are 2 miles from historic downtown where you can dine at the harbor and watch the boats go by or visit the many unique shops and small interesting restaurants that are scattered throughout this town. Wander through the side streets and enjoy the art galleries that display local artists' work or visit our book stores where local authors discuss their latest book. See the old homes and beautiful architecture that brings you back to another time in the South.
There are many cultural and special events from concerts to small theater groups that are well worth attending. And for the nature lover there are numerous walks plus visit the historical, National Park, Fort Clinch, which borders on our property. Go to Little Talbot or Big Talbot for birding or just enjoy the old majestic moss laden trees that dot its landscape while you walk the trail.
