Why Palmetto Point?

PALMETTO POINT is near Governors Harbour, and consists of two smaller communities, North and South. Although she doesn't have the history her northern neighbor has, Palmetto Point (or "The Point") has become in recent years a viable island community. The traveler will find here valuable services, friendly people, a wide variety of hotels, oceanfront and beachfront rentals, and a sense that he or she is at home . . . and the beaches are out of this world!

Things to Do

MateMate and Jenny's

Palmetto Point has an international cuisine (OK, so its mainly seafood and pizza). For the best island dishes, and conch and pineapple pizza anywhere, try Mate and Jenny's Restaurant about 100 yards south from Queen's Highway.

Beaches around Palmetto Point can be found in many places, on both the Atlantic and Caribbean coasts. There are also many seaside villas, cliffs and caves.
