Palm Island

In the Caribbean’s Windward Islands, a string of some 600 islands and islets dot the sea between St. Lucia and Grenada. It’s a paradise for yachters, where you can drop anchor off an uninhabited island and live out your Robinson Crusoe fantasies. A handful of these islands are home to resorts, including the private Palm Island, first leased to an American couple in 1966 for $1 per year. They established the ten-room Palm Island Beach Club, which over the years has grown—though there are still only a total of 43 guest rooms on this single-resort island.

Palm Island

Getting to the Grenadines’ secluded Palm Island isn’t for the faint of heart—the 135-acre resort is reachable only by boat from nearby Union Island, after a flight from Barbados or St. Lucia. Once there, however, the property rewards you for your efforts with five white-sand beaches, a maze of palm-fringed hiking and biking trails, and endless expanses of turquoise sea. Though the 43 rooms, suites, and villas are charming in their own right—think Caribbean-chic furnishings, stone accents, and floor-to-ceiling glass doors leading to the beach—you’ll want to make a beeline for the Sunset Grill for pan-seared fish and Caribbean specialties before boarding the property’s Pink Lady sloop or catamaran to snorkel off the Tobago Cays, a UNESCO World Heritage marine park.
