Mother of the Year Honored by The Spa at Omni Amelia Island Plantation

Last week we opened our newest dining venue at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation, Natural Slice!  One of the newest Amelia Island restaurants, Natural Slice is a surf inspired pizza joint located on the south end of our coastal island.  The restaurant serves pizza by the slice (shortboards) or a full pie (longboards), all made on our signature saltwater crust harvested with salt straight from the local waters of the Atlantic Ocean! The shop offers an eclectic mix of clothing, accessories and surf gear for all ages. Enjoy a Sandbar shortboard (slice of cheese) or a Point Break shortboard (slice of peperoni)  for just $3.
