Destination guide

Embrace a Gulf Coast getaway

Situated on Florida's lower Gulf Coast, Palm Island is the Sunshine State at its most naturally spectacular. This svelte barrier island is accessible only by boat, ensuring that it never gets overrun with cars full of day trippers. Consequently, it's a breeze to claim a little slice of this tropical paradise for yourself. Palm Island vacation rentals range from pristine villas ideal for a spontaneous romantic weekend, to opulent houses where you could host your entire extended family. Many of these occupy prime oceanfront locations, offering direct access to palm-fringed, powder-soft white sand and emerald green water.

Things to do

Exploring around Palm Island

If you fancy a change of pace or a break from the sun, you'll find plenty of attractions within easy reach of your Palm Island vacation rental. Venice, about an hour away by ferry and car, is a bustling seaside town with an eclectic array of diversions. The Ideal Classic Cars Museum and Showroom is a must for petrol heads, with over 100 exquisitely preserved vintage cars, trucks, and motorcycles to marvel at. If you fancy sticking around for the evening, the Venice Theatre plays host to an enthralling year-round program of attention-grabbing dramas, toe-tapping, musicals and side-splitting comedy shows.


Get wet and wild on Palm Island

Many come to Palm Island to do as little as humanly possible, but for those of a more active disposition, there's all manner of enthralling ways to while away your days. Those tranquil, glimmering waters are ideal for kayaking or paddle boarding. Get far enough out to sea and you may catch a glimpse of playful dolphins or friendly manatees. The region is also a haven for anglers. Join an expedition and a local expert will sail you out in search of highly-prized catches such as shimmering silver tarpons or giant goliath groupers. After a hard day's fishing, you can head back to your Palm Island vacation rental to cook up a spectacular fresh seafood feast.


Perpetually sun-kissed Palm Island

Palm Island is blessed with an enviable climate, making it an alluring destination at all times of year. Winters are mild, dry, and sunny, although you may find it a little too fresh for swimming and sunbathing. Summers can get sizzlingly hot, and you should bear in mind that rainfall and high humidity are common at this time of year. Spring and fall offer reliably warm temperatures, with gentle ocean breezes to keep things agreeable. Palm Island vacation rentals are sought-after throughout the year, so early booking is always a good idea.
