Palm Island – Southern Grenadines Private Escape

It’s all the solitude and bliss any private island lover could ask for: at the southern end of the Grenadines belonging to St. Vincent, and just 400 yards offshore from Union Island, Palm Island is a 135-acre private island resort where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic Ocean.  From the air, it invites with offshore waters of pale aquamarine indicating the shallow and calm conditions to enjoy.

How the Palm Arrived There:

This islet was first known on maps of the region as something quite different.  It began as Prune Island, but then the former owners renamed it the more attractive and appropriate Palm Island when they physically transformed it by planting hundreds of coconut trees around its perimeters.  The current owner, Rob Barrett, has continued to make it over into an idyllic small island hideaway that gives private access to the surrounding nature along with residential-style luxuriant amenities.

What You Find There:

Palm Island is fringed with five white sand beaches.  Its finest beach is reckoned to be Casuarina Beach, which spans the entire length of its western coastline.  Its interior includes nature trails and indigenous wildlife.

This palm-covered oasis property consists of 34 roomy beachfront stone cottages.  The all-inclusive resort, which is the only establishment on the island, also features two restaurants for guests – the Royal Palm, for elegant dining on cuisine prepared by award-winning chefs, and the more casual Suset Bar and Grill, with its “Friday BBQ Night”.

Guests at Palm Island can be as active or relaxed as they please – from lounging on the beach or in a hammock to playing tennis, swimming, bodysurfing, windsurfing or piloting a sunfish sailboat.  Also available are day cruises to go scuba diving in the Tobago Cays.  Slower paced activities include walking along the ribbon of soft white-sand beaches that ring the island, taking time for four o’clock tea on a private patio, shopping for hand-crafted Grenadies items at the Sandy Feet Boutique.

How to Be There:

A private boat will meet and ferry you over to Palm Island.  Visitors are also welcome provided that arrangements are made in advance.
