Board the 5-minute car ferry to Palm Island Resort, then revel in the satisfying crunch of seashell-covered pathways beneath your private golf cart. Tastefully decorated beachfront villas, cottages, and homes have full kitchens (don't forget to stock up at Publix on the way over) and screened-in porches. Keep an eye out for green gopher tortoises, brown pelicans, and dolphins in the surf.
