A mere hop from the mainland—though miles away measured by mindset—Palm Island Resort is Florida’s only true island resort. Neither bridge nor causeway ties this sliver of authentic Old Florida to the rest of the world. A short, breezy ferry ride offers the perfect opportunity to take some deep, relaxing breaths and access your inner beachcomber.
Palm Island Go
Fill every day with fun—take the kids jet skiing or paddle boarding, get tips on your form with a private tennis lesson, spend a morning tarpon fishing on a boating charter. Plus, Palm Island Resort is located within 25 minutes of nine excellent golf courses.
Palm Island Slow
After your leisurely Nature Cruise, how about sandcastles on the beach decorated with shells from your morning walk? From yoga on the green, to basking in the sun to bicycling around the island, taking it easy is a fine art at Palm Island Resort.
Palm Island Green
Palm Island beaches are among the most popular shelling beaches on Florida’s Gulf Coast. As you walk along the shore, you’ll find colorful coquinas, scallops, clamshells, and dozens of other beautiful seashells. Shark’s teeth, too! When you’re lucky enough to discover a sand dollar or starfish, keep in mind they’re living creatures, and please throw them back into the Gulf.
Just a quick water taxi ride from the resort, Leverock’s is the place to fill up on fresh. If it’s on the menu today, it was in the Gulf of Mexico yesterday. You’ll savor just-caught Gulf fish, raw bar, signature dishes, salads with homemade dressings and so much more, overlooking the scenic marina and Intracoastal Waterway.
Open from lunch through mid-afternoon, sunset and dinner, Rum Bay offers tasty, tropical island-style comfort food. And drop into the Rum Bay Bar to relax, chat, and enjoy a cocktail any time of day. (You may want to try a Rum Bay Smash or a Shark’s Tooth.) Indoors or under an umbrella on the patio, it doesn’t get much better than this.
