The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island features a squiggle-shaped outdoor swimming pool, an indoor swimming pool, a pool and hot tub for spa guests, plus a children’s pool adjacent to a sandbox and jungle gym. There’s plentiful seating in lounge chairs throughout the outdoor pool areas, and servers from the adjacent Ocean Bar & Grill restaurant will regularly circulate should you need a bit of nourishment after swimming some laps. The Ocean Bar & Grill offers a selection of frozen drinks, refreshing cocktails like mojitos and margaritas, plus light bites like tequila-lime chicken salad, seafood ceviche and a Cuban sandwich. Additionally, a boardwalk over the sand dunes connects the pool area to the beach, where you recline on a lounge chair and listen to the sounds of crashing waves or rent a cabaña for the day. And if you’ve accidentally forgotten to pack your swimsuit or bottle of suntan lotion at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel, you’ll find everything you could ever want for fun in the sun available for purchase in The Ladies’ Boutique on the ground level of the North Tower — the brightly patterned beach cover-ups and bikinis are especially appealing.
