Residing in Crane Island resembles an island paradise dream come to life. The coastal cachet runs deep in Crane Island’s veins; it boasts status as both a Southern Living® Inspired Community and Coastal Living® Community. It doesn’t take 30 years of residency to see why.
Crane Island is full of the requisite charm, beauty, and local spirit one would expect from a neighborhood with such a reputation. Take one look at the sprawling, unspoiled beaches and the dreamy island homes on the island and try not to fall in love.
Speaking of homes, Crane Island real estate consists largely of custom-built homes spread across multiple distinct districts – the Intracoastal Waterway, Marsh, Forest, and Alice Park. Despite its allure, Crane Island is still a relatively small community, so homes for sale aren’t quite as prevalent here. However, there are tons of plots awaiting development, so you can build the dream home you’ve always wanted.
Situated on the west edge of Amelia Island, Crane Island offers the ideal mixture of quiet serenity and proximity to excitement. The small island is home to several local boutique shops and restaurants, as well as endless opportunities for boating, kayaking, fishing, and more. Should you ever long for more, you’re only a brief drive from the bustle of nearby Jacksonville and Fernandina Beach.
