Palm Island In The Grenadines For A Great Caribbean Island Vacation

Palm Island is a tiny island of 135 acres in the Grenadines, only accessible by boat, and about a mile from Union Island, which is the most southerly island in the Grenadines about 60 miles south west of Barbados.

If you wish to get to Palm Island then you can fly into Union Island from Saint Vincent and some other Grenadines Islands, and there are international flights to Barbados, Carriacou, Grenada, and Martinique, so accessibility from Europe and the USA is not a problem. In fact getting to Palm Island is half the fun, from the roller coaster dive down onto the Union island airstrip followed by the boat trip.

Palm Island was formerly known as Prune Island, but it was renamed when former owners Johnny and Mary Caldwell planted hundreds of coconut palms, and so converted a deserted and swamp infested island to one covered in palm trees, and transformed it into the world class destination it has now become.

Palm Island has five beaches and has a resort and about twenty privately owned properties.

It has been named The World's Leading Private Island, and the resort on Palm Island has been described as one of the Caribbean's most romantic resorts, and one of the best places to stay in the world.

Palm Island is best described as another day in paradise, whether or not you choose elegant living in a comfortable private home rental or you take the all inclusive yacht package. Palm Island is the perfect stopover on a combination package where you spend part of your time sailing and sleeping on the yacht and the rest on dry land.

The resort is all inclusive, absolutely top class, undoubtedly one of the best in the Grenadines, but the private beach house rentals are something special too, giving you a quiet, safe and carefree vacation for you and your family.

In the resort children under 16 years of age are only accepted from 1st of April to 2nd January, but are accepted in the private beach villas throughout the year.

The private beach houses on Palm Island are individually designed and decorated by their owners, so they have all the home comforts you want, and this can include daily maid, private cook, and your own all inclusive private yacht.

Palm Island has a bird sanctuary a salt water lagoon filled with fish which meanders over the island. There are trails to explore through the palm groves, jogging trails for the fitness minded, beautiful beaches next to a clear turquoise sea, and reefs with lots of fish, and great snorkeling.

There is a restaurant and bar right on the beach, and food is delicious, and a great chance to sample real West Indian Grenadines cuisine. Fish in the restaurant comes high on the menu, and there is a weekly BBQ and a local steel band.

Palm Island is for people who like to go bare foot on holiday, although there is a dress code in the evenings in the restaurant and bar, which keeps standards up.

Palm Island in the Grenadines, isn't just for sailors, and has a great selection of accommodation for the perfect Caribbean Island Vacation.
