Life in Amelia Island Plantation can include a myriad of nature-related experiences, like watching the birds swoop down to catch a fish, going on a family beach day or taking a quiet walk to reflect on your busy day. AIP was created by the region’s most prestigious, eco-friendly developers who dedicated their efforts towards maintaining a delicate balance between man and nature. Unleash your adventurous side exploring our community’s natural habitats.
This luxury community’s thoughtful design enables its residents to live harmoniously amid 1,350 acres of maritime forests, marshes and miles of untouched beachfront. By building walkways and boardwalks which steer bike and foot traffic away from wildlife food sources, AIP’s wide strips of natural vegetation buffer waterways, allowing them to provide shelter, travel corridors and food for animals. From natural habitats to designated nature areas, our luxurious Florida gated community awaits your arrival.
Three Vibrant Ecosystems
- Anchored between ocean and marsh, our maritime forests encompass nine miles of scenic, tree-lined trails.
- AIP’s unspoiled tidal salt marshes offer a brilliant foreground for glorious sunsets in cotton-candy skies above the Intracoastal Waterway.
- Rare among private luxury communities, AIP embraces the beach and dune ecosystem along 3.5 miles of uninterrupted beachfront.
Set in the middle of forests, beaches, and marshes, it’s no wonder Amelia Island is bustling with wildlife. Any bird watchers out there? You and a loved one can enjoy a wide array of birds (egrets, bald eagles and pelicans, to name a few) on the Great Florida Birding & Wildlife Trail.
Willow Conservatory is home to an assortment of warblers, woodpeckers and other birds, along with grey foxes, bobcats and nocturnal creatures, such as raccoons, armadillo and opossum. And don’t forget, on your beach day with the kids, you may spot fun marine creatures like rare birds, gopher tortoises, adorable sea turtles and North Atlantic right whales.
