About the neighbourhood
The Palms is about 3-4 min walking distance from lovely private beach. Some nice restaurants are on the island and more in East Point and Apalachicola, across the four-mile bridge.
Great hiking trails, especially at The Plantation, St. George Isl. State Park, on the east end of the island, and at Tate's Hell Forest (trails accessible from Hwy 98 near Carrabelle.) We also recommend to see the Estuarine Museum and historical Apalachicola.
Getting around
Biking is very popular on the Island. There is a good biking trails almost everywhere on the Island. But we recommend to have a car if you wish to go on the mainland.
