We think you will find that this location is ideal. You can realistically park your car and never need to get in it until it's time to depart. However, if you do so choose to explore more, your options are endless. In the resort itself there are many parks and playgrounds. From the pirate themed Aury Island playground overlooking one of the beautiful lagoons, to Drummond Park which has a playground, basketball courts, an open field, picnic tables and grills. At Drummond Park you'll also find boardwalks that meander out along the salt marsh giving you an amazing vista, where you may see great blue herons, egrets, or some of the many other water bird life that inhabit the area. Visit Walkers Landing and enjoy sitting on the beautiful Walkers Creek. There you'll find a dock for fishing, as well as a launch ramp for putting in watercraft This is also the location where many of the kayak and paddleboard excursions are held. We believe Amelia Island Plantation to be a true paradise!
