Local Tips
Beautiful Point Loma
The hotel is located in an ideal location. Shelter Island is home to plenty of boating, fishing, restaurants and hotels. Don't miss this opportunity.

While a guest, you should take advantage of the amenities the Island Palms has. Get a workout at the fitness center or stay fit by walking, jogging, or biking along the hotel’s paths. After you’ve worked up a sweat, take a dip in one of the two pools or unwind in the hot tub. The property also has tennis courts with complimentary racquet rental in case you left yours at home.

You don’t have to go far to enjoy California cuisine because the hotel’s restaurant, Blue Wave Bar & Grill, serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. Meet at the bar for a cocktail before you dine, or plan to have your meal delivered to your room or served poolside.

With a private marina right at the hotel, you can charter a sailboat or schedule a deep-sea fishing excursion. Stop by the marina shop for any essentials you may need before you head out towards open waters, or plan to check out rods and fish from the Shelter Island Pier. If you prefer to stay on land, head over to San Diego to spend time at some of the many attractions that the city has to offer.

Why not schedule your work function or special occasion, utilizing the meeting rooms or outdoor spots at Island Palms? With over 6,500 square feet of event space to make your wedding or team building exercise a success. It’s no wonder why this Best Western Plus is a favorite with visitors, year after year.
