Dining Options with a Focus on the Sea, Yet Providing Variety and Value.

Although each type of accommodation is complete with a full kitchen, Palm Island Resort has several options providing you with the best opportunity to maximize your vacation experience. Come and explore our world of food and beverage.

Palm Island Resort is home to Rum Bay Restaurant right on the island. Our Coconut’s Café is ideal for a picking up a gourmet cup of morning coffee, breakfast pastries, an ice cream cone, or creating your own picnic basket. Coconut’s Café offers basic provisions as a convenience to both boaters and resort guests who might have forgotten a basic staple for an evening gathering.

Rum Bay Restaurant is the real deal when seeking a tropical island-style restaurant for fun, libation and good family food. Open for lunch and dinner with gourmet hamburgers, fresh local fish and Swamp Sauce on the baby backs that others envy.

Centrally located within the Resort and easily accessible by boat. Boat parking is available or hop on the water taxi. Maybe the captain can share with you the story of how Rum Bay got its name. A place to relax and have fun with specialty nights, holiday menus and nightly specials with an island influence.
