Beach Rentals and More & The Beach Store are celebrating their fifth year in Fernandina Beach, providing visitors and locals alike with everything they need for a fun time on and around Amelia Island. Owners Melanie Baker and Dean Root had always wanted a vacation-type business and they found the company in January 2011. “We look forward to the continued growth of our business and meeting more of our neighbors,” says Melanie. “We have enjoyed meeting people from all over the world and we have so many new friends! Dean is meticulous in maintaining all of our equipment so we can offer the best on the island. We pride ourselves in offering fantastic service for all our customers, and the very best gear.” “If you’re into experiencing the island on two wheels, you might want to consider renting one of our cruiser-style bikes,” says Melanie. “I suggest taking a cruiser to the Amelia Island Greenway, and then maybe onto the Amelia Bike Trail, and even beach riding at low tide. It’s a great way to see the island!” Beach Rentals and More also offers bait & tackle, rash guards, sweatshirts, sun shirts, jackets, sunglasses, hats, sunscreen, tee shirts, flip flops, kites, beach towels, sundries, cold drinks, snacks, post cards, sharks teeth, coolers, and more. “You can even set up a surfing lesson or stand-up paddle board lesson,” says Melanie. Local residents receive 10% off rentals or items in The Beach Store. The store is located at 2021 South Fletcher Avenue. For more information, call (904) 310-6124 or visit
