Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live on your own desert island? When we stepped ashore from our boat at Palm Island in the Grenadines for the very first time we fancied we had unknowingly walked straight on to the set of Castaway. Coming to Palm is most likely to be the closest you will ever come to realising the fantasy . . .
According to "Travel and Leisure", Palm Island is "one of the best places to stay in the world". Few of its pampered visitors would choose to quarrel with that. Little changed since it was first discovered, it's a glorious Caribbean hideaway for escapists. Very quiet. And very, very romantic.
