Palm Island

Palm Island in the Grenadines is a tiny island a mile from Union Island, and only accessible by boat. It has an area of 135 acres (0.55 km2) and has five beaches.

Originally known as Prune Island, Palm Island got its current name when the former owners, the late John Caldwell ("Johnny Coconut") and his wife Mary, planted hundreds of coconut palms, transforming the deserted, swampy, and mosquito infested island into a palm covered one.

Palm Island is now the home of Palm Island resort and twenty private holiday villas. There are two restaurants (the Royal Palm Restaurant and the Sunset Grill) and two bars, a spa, a swimming pool, tennis court, island golf course and other facilities for resident guests.
