Where to Stay on Palm Island, Florida

I stayed in a one bedroom fully furnished unit on Palm Island beach overlooking the Gulf of Mexico. It was immaculately clean and totally modern. I parked my golf cart out front and plugged it in to charge while I wasn't using it.

 I'm sharing the photos and video below so you can see what the resort accommodations are like, generally. Each unit is different. The beach rental units are individually owned, but the resort manages them. They have all sizes, so just give the Palm Island Resort a call and they'll hook you up. They have some pretty nice rates in the off season (summer and fall).

I could really get used to living in a place like this. The only sound I could hear at night was the sound of the Gulf of Mexico lapping gently on the beach, the sound of a light breeze rustling the trees, and a few crickets. Even during the day it was quiet with little more than the surf and some birds calling, but occasionally there was some noise from the various maintenance crews on the property.

If you are looking for peace and quiet and don't need entertainment beyond what the beach and local waters offer, you can't go wrong with Palm Island Resort. And of course it's a popular wedding and honeymoon destination as well as a great place for family reunions and getaways.

Be sure to check out Don Pedro Island and Little Gasparilla Island too.
