Palm Island and LaLuna in one trip?

Jump to last reply

Oh wise and helpful Fodorites: I'm planning an anniversary trip for April in which we would like to stay at two separate resorts in over ten days. Is it possible to transfer from LaLuna on Grenada to Palm Island in the Grenadines without a great deal of time and expense? If it's not possible, any suggestions for another place to go near Palm Island?

    To get to Palm Island, you have to fly to Union Island (almost always through Barbados) and then take a boat over, but it's not far.

    So it's going to be considerably easier to divide your time between Palm Island and a resort on the flight route from Union to Barbados (which does not include Grenada if you're flying via SVG Air).

    That usually means Barbados or Canouan. It's not cheap to fly to Union Island (about $320 round-trip), so the added expense of getting to Grenada, which is not so easily reached from Union, may be unattractive. I think at least one of SVG Air's routes goes to Grenada via Union (perhaps from St. Vincent).

    There is a fast ferry from Petite Martinique to Grenada, but you'd have to arrange transportation from Palm Island over there (it's not a long way, though). The ferry itself is pretty cheap and takes about 2 hours to get to Grenada, but these routes aren't often timed conveniently for vacationers.

    Liat may have other flight options, but I'm not as familiar with them. I've done a flight with SVG Air. Or you could probably do the trip by sailboat in a full day, and that could be fun and relaxing, so it might be worth exploring. It wouldn't be cheap, though.
