Little Palm Island is a tropical retreat occupying lush five-acre Little Torch Key (reached via launch from a shore station at Mile Marker 28.5), a half-hour north of Key West. Thirty accommodations in thatched bungalow suites feature vaulted ceilings, whirlpool baths, four-poster canopy beds, separate living areas, indoor/outdoor showers and private verandas (no in-room TVs or phones). A fine restaurant is complemented by a freshwater lagoon pool with a palapa bar. The resort offers a spa, fitness center, library retreat, small white-sand beach, snorkeling/scuba excursions, sailing/fishing charters and helicopter/seaplane tours. A favorite of honeymooners. Little Palm Island Resort is not recommended for long stays because of its confining size. No children under age 16.
