Also known as Don Pedro Island, this private tropical paradise is part of an extensive chain of barrier islands along the Gulf Coast. Accessible only by boat—or by daily car ferry—boating, fishing, diving and sailing are just a few of the numerous pastimes available to residents. Cars are permitted, but most people move around the island in golf carts. ... more.The island is approximately 7 miles long from Stump Pass to Gasparilla Pass. From the moment of arrival, residents are provided with a sense of transition to another world where relaxation and serenity are the order of the day. Natural, picturesque surroundings frame this "old-Florida" family-oriented community.
Architecture styles on Palm Island are tropical-themed and pay homage to the time-honored styles of Key West and Grand Cayman. Immaculate estates are limited in number in order to preserve the pristine natural beauty of the island and the privacy of its residents.
