Default Which Island has the most palm trees?

I love Palm Trees and still get excited every time I see them. I really like the coconut and royal palms but are surprised how few of them there are in many ports of call throughout the Caribbean.

Which island seemed to have the most Palm Trees and had the lushest scenery (rain forests)?

I do know that Antigua has the most beaches of any of the Caribean islands. It is said there is a beach for everyday of the year...Palm trees are mostly found near the beach too.....

Grenada, Dominica, Martinique, St. Lucia, Jamaica, St. Vincent, Tobago
come to mind for lush and green islands. Lush and green doesn't necessarily translate into palms though.
Many of the palms you see around the resort beaches are transplanted.

Oh my, but you're "funny"! Some of us "catch" what you're throwing (ick!), some of us "miss" what you're throwing (much better!).

Palm Trees !

You're really not fooling anyone here, unless fooling new cruiser's makes you feel good .
