Palm Island Resort, Florida

Don Pedro Island is one of the barrier islands that populate the west coast of Florida. It is located about two hours south of Tampa.  There is no bridge to Don Pedro Island. It can be accessed by boat or ferry. The northern tip of the island is Stump Pass famous for snook fishing. At the southern tip is Gasparilla Sound known for tarpon fishing. Palm Island Resort is located on the northern tip of the island. Only golf carts are allowed at the Palm Island Resort. The resort had tennis, swimming pools, bike and golf cart rentals, kayak rentals, miles of beach, sea and shore birds, shells, and a very relaxing atmosphere. Set your watch to island time and leave your cares on the mainland. Enjoy the pictures.

WillStarr, Florida has changed since then. Way too developed now. There are still a few places left that have that old Florida charm and good fishing!

My grandfather wintered in Florida in the early fifties and we used to visit. I loved it but I haven't been back since.
