One of our favorite places to relax is Little Palm Island in the Florida Keys. With only fourteen grass huts, each with its own hammock, it’s a very private place. Fortunately, there’s also a five star restaurant. We visited in 1990, when Linda was pregnant, and again in 1993, although we endured several inches of rain on that trip.
You arrive by boat…
…at a tiny island a few miles off the keys. This is where PT-109 was filmed. It was long a private retreat, but now accommodates a handful of guests, who relax, play, recreate, and dine in the five-start restaurant.
There are fourteen of these grass-thatched huts.
Lush plantings of Palm trees lend the island a South Seas flavor.
The rooms really have thatched roofs…
…but they’re far from austere.
And the best seat on the island is the hammock outside your door.
