Located on the south end of Amelia Island, Omni Amelia Island Plantation proudly announces the opening of its newest dining venue, Natural Slice -- a surf-inspired pizza restaurant and surf shop. This family-friendly pizza joint serves a full cast of fresh ingredients on hand-tossed dough, complete with signature saltwater crust harvested with salt from the local Atlantic Ocean waters.

Pizza by the slice or full pies – creatively coined "short boards" and "long boards," respectively – entice guests with specialty and create-your-own options at this gnarly dive. Natural Slice offers surf-style selections such as the "Endless Summer," bursting with robust tomatoes, bell peppers, red onions, mushrooms and olives, while "The Riptide", a meat lover’s paradise, showcases pepperoni, ham, bacon and sausage.

The "Sandbar Longboard," a traditional cheese pizza, starts at a budget-friendly $9 per pie. Domestic and premium draft beer, as well as a delicious variety of wines, are available to perfectly accompany each bite. Alongside the delectable pizza dishes are epic green salads, such as the Romaine salad with crisp cucumbers, fresh tomatoes and red onions, and the spinach salad with oranges, radishes and ginger.

The restaurant also boasts a "hang ten" surf shop complete with rad retail offerings including surf gear, beach wear for both men and women and skateboards. Embracing the creative culture of the locals, Natural Slice sells surfboards locally made by P.Surfboards. Owner Pedro Rodriguez designs, shapes, manufactures and sells custom designed surfboards throughout Amelia Island.

Flat-screen televisions around the restaurant feature regular showings of the throwback 80’s classic, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, perfect for children and adults alike to enjoy while they grab a slice.

Natural Slice is open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and is conveniently located between the Amelia Signature Shop and Harrison’s Mercantile in the Shops of Amelia Island Plantation.
