I have heard that living in the Palm is great. Does anyone have anything to add to this?

Is the traffic congested? Are there villas available there? Public beaches?

Just getting a feel for the surroundings. It looks beautiful but things are not always what they seem...

Thank you!

There are lots of villas there, each one has its own beach area. Not seen this personally, but have heard that the water quality in between the fronds isn't very good as there's no natural water flow, so the water just becomes stagnant and full of algae. No traffic problems any time I've been there.

Interesting!

Ok- thank you! That gives me something to start with....

No, traffic is rarely heavy. Yes, lots of villas on the fronds, but they are surprisingly close and expensive for what they are. The apartment buildings have beach access, as do the villas. Not sure that the public can just wander on & use the facilities, but I doubt it. There are now a few cafes, restaurants (& the ugly Atlantis Hotel at the end), but not an awful lot in the way of shops etc.
