Moms put so much work into raising their kids and providing for their families that they often don’t take time out for themselves. Change that when you plan a mother’s day trip to Amelia Island to show mom how much she means to you! There is so much to explore during spring on Amelia Island, and we are sure that mom will love her time here!

4 Things to Do On Mother’s Day Weekend in Amelia Island

Relax at an Amelia Island Day Spa

The sand, sun, and cool island breeze set you at ease as soon as you cross the Shave Jr, but if you want to take your relaxation to the next level, you should visit an Amelia Island Day Spa while you are here. A wise man once said, “A day at the spa is a day well spent,” and we 100% agree! A few of our favorite area day spas are:

  • Magna’s Salon
  • Coastal Massage Therapy
  • Omni Amelia Island Plantation Spa

Eat Brunch at an Amelia Island Restaurant

Amelia Island is home to numerous restaurants, bars, and cafes, and nothing screams Mother’s Day like a brunch out on the town. Visit a local restaurant like Beach Diner or Cafe Karibo for a fan favorite brunch in Fernandina Beach every day of the week. A few of our other favorites include:

  • The Patio Place
  • Ms. Carolyn’s
  • Pogo’s Kitchen

Shop at Downtown Fernandina Beach Boutiques

Shopping is one of the greatest American pastimes. You can go shopping anywhere anytime, but everywhere does not possess the great hidden gems that downtown Fernandina Beach holds. From upscale boutiques to crafty local book stores, we have several hidden gems that we are very proud of:

  • The Book Loft
  • Eight Flags Antique Market
  • Pippi’s Consignment Cottage
  • Twisted Sisters

Enjoy an Amelia Island Sunset

Watching the sunset on the Atlantic Ocean is awe-inspiring, and there are several great spots to view the sunset on the island. Mom will really appreciate you taking her to the beach, but there is no better way to cap the day than with a bit of scenery and maybe even a glass of wine. You will feel like you are watching the end of a movie when you watch the sunset from:

  • Riverfront Marina
  • Dee Dee Bartels Public Boat Ramp
  • Old Town’s Fernandina Plaza
  • Fort Clinch State Park
