Location

Our special Island lies just north of Boca Grande surrounded by the pristine waters of Charlotte Harbor, Lemon Bay, and the Gulf of Mexico – just a hundred yards off the mainland. There is no road bridge to the Island and there never will be. But our owners and resort guests enjoy easy access to Palm Island Resort aboard the car ferry.

After the five-minute trip to the Island, all vehicles proceed to the resort central parking area. Owners as well as guests have the convenient privilege of a full baggage service to deliver them to their homes or rental accommodation. In keeping with the harmony our white sand beaches, sea oats and shell paths, all personal cars are parked in secure, gated lot.

Golf carts, bicycles and your own two feet are the primary means of transportation you will find on the Resort.
