Aquamarina at Palm Harbour is one of the best small marinas found on the West Coast of Florida. The marina staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The marina boasts a good size swimming pool with adjacent hot tub and gas grills. There is a fantastic restaurant on site and the marina provides access to the beach on the Gulf of Mexico via a water taxi for a modest charge. Once on the beach, marina patrons also have access to another restaurant/grill and an ice cream shop. The beach, located on Little Gasparilla Island is a beachcomber paradise, with several miles of beach on which to hunt for those great shells to be added to your collection back home.
