Protecting Our Environment
Mote Marine Partnership
Our partnership with Mote Marine continues to develop with efforts to help restore our reef. Future projects include a site directly off our shore in Newfound Harbor. A tract of coral will be cultivated for growth and continually be transplanted to help area reefs. Guests will have the opportunity to interact with the scientists and even sponsor coral from the site install to transplant!
Paradise with a Purpose
Our beautiful island is surrounded by azure ocean and located very near the stunning Looe Key Reef. Within the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, Looe Key Reef is a wildlife refuge, and part of the third largest living coral reef in the world. Little Palm Island has long supported and partnered with MOTE Marine Labs in their valiant reef restoration efforts. MOTE’s employees and scientists work diligently to discover new ways to grow and transplant coral. They have championed scientific breakthroughs, resulting in faster and more effective reef restoration. Our guests are passionate about the environment and enjoy many activities out on the water, specifically around the reef. For that reason, we have curated a package that includes snorkeling the reef and exploring the beauty of the ocean. Most importantly, a donation will be made to MOTE Marine Labs in the amount of $100 for every Paradise with a Purpose package sold. We hope you will join us soon for a true luxury escape, and all the while positively affecting reef restoration in the Keys.

Restoration of Sea Grasses
Following the devastation of Hurricane Irma, our goal was to restore the natural coastline of the island. Appropriate sea grasses were planted on our beach as a result, and underwater buoys were installed to protect the seagrass in the surrounding waters.
We no longer utilize tiny bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Our suites are appointed with our signature Coco Mango bath & body essentials in large multi-use pump bottles.
A Strawless Escape
Plastic straws are not used on our island. Paper straws are available on request and metal straws with the resort logo are available for sale in the island boutique.
Conch Republic Marine Army
Our support for The Conch Republic Marine Army (CRMA) began in 2017, following a devastating blow to the Florida Keys from Hurricane Irma. The CRMA is dedicated to cleaning and restoring the mangrove habitats in our island chain. Through monetary donations, use of our Little Torch Key dockage, and help from our staff, CRMA’s volunteers have been able to recover 422,734 pounds of debris! The crystal clear waters of the Florida Keys are a testament to their dedication and hard work.
Lighting and HVAC
While rebuilding the property following hurricane Irma, high efficiency HVAC systems were installed in all our island structures. Our gorgeous landscape lighting as well as interior lights were also upgraded at LED products.
