“Houses can form a neighborhood but only people can make it a community”, is an old proverb. And when those houses are craftily planted into existing nature with a minimal of disturbance, a Community comes together much faster and stronger.
“Our trees probably cost $10,000 a piece,” says developer Marc Footlik as he points at the magnificent foliage that is Oyster Bay Harbour and Yacht Club across the Amelia River from Fernandina Beach. Trying to capture the old waterfront plantation in the marshes of North East Florida in words is simply impossible. The colors, the dancing tree shades, the scent of the water, the breeze off the ocean, the peacefulness of watching traffic crossing the bridge in the far distance, makes it at once clear that Oyster Bay Harbour and Yacht Club is much more than a widespread gated residential community or a fancy marina with exclusive club amenities.

Oyster Bay Harbour is so much more then just a “harbor”. It’s a lifestyle, it’s respect for nature, it’s socializing with your neighbors and friends on the streets, docks, the tiki hut or the Yacht Club. It’s riding your bike or walking your pet in an abundant natural environment where plantation lifestyle is still vibrant and omni-present.
Residents of Oyster Bay Harbour can stroll through miles of nature trails, absorbing the rich flora and fauna of this historic area. Birdwatchers will delight when they spot their first snowy egret or the osprey nest high at the top of a tree. Oyster Bay Harbour is home to migrating pink spoonbills every year that literally turn the trees pink and fill the sky with their magnificent color and glory. Amateur botanists will smile as they run their fingers along the silky leaves of the sea lavender. Dotted with live oaks, the trails wind throughout the community and put you in the direct embrace of original, pristine Florida and offer stunning reminders of why you escaped to Oyster Bay Harbour.

Oyster Bay Harbour Activities
Take your pick of things to do when living in Oyster Bay Harbour. From a leisurely stroll down the tree lined streets, a safe bicyle ride or jog; or fishing from the dock, navigating your boat through the many scenic North Florida waterways to deep sea fishing in the Atlantic Ocean; lounging by the pool at the Yacht Club or having drinks at the Tiki Hut at the Marina; playing a game of tennis or going shopping on Amelia Island; spend the day at the beach or go to a Jaguars game in Jacksonville. The choices are really endless and are only limited by your imagination. And the beauty of it all is the accessibility, less then 30 minutes from Jacksonville Int’l Airport, 25 minutes from Jacksonville’s seaport and 10 minutes from Interstate 95; yet completely tucked away in the Florida Marshes.
