No. 1 Little Palm Island Resort & Spa, Little Torch Key, FL
Accessible only by boat or seaplane, Little Palm is Florida's most secluded and romantic retreat, a bona-fide tropical idyll set along a white-sand beach on a private 6-acre island in the Keys. Thirty thatched-roof bungalows shaded by towering palms, turquoise sea, and coral reef—add to the far-away feel. More adventurous guests can delve into scuba diving or kayaking, sailing or deep-sea fishing, skydiving or Wave Runner safaris, kiteboarding lessons or seaplane tours of the Florida Keys and nearby Everglades. At the end of the day, the island’s SpaTerre provides a soothing retreat that morphs right into sundowners at the bar and candlelit dining on the shore.
