Gatherings & Retreats

The Best Florida Family Reunions

“It has been simply amazing to experience the sight and sounds of families coming together on Palm Island. With such longevity of employment, many of our staff feels as though they have witnessed the children’s growth and have seen them through the years as they too start bringing their children to Palm Island Resort, too. Many have been seen through the loss of their first tooth, we have shared a chocolate covered Easter bunny, taught a child how to use a boogie board and have been told the stories of who has been naughty or nice.” We offer customized packages, private adventures and organized banquets. Gather the whole gang for s’mores or a Nature Walk to make new wonderful memories. Find out what has brought back so many families year after year. family-reunion-at-the-beach2
