It is called an island because it is encircled by a buffer of over 300 acres of woodlands and wetlands set aside as conservation areas for native Florida wildlife to live. Thus, it is an emerald "land island" amid a sea of lush tropical green.
This is the entrance into Emerald Island Resort from Funnie Steed road. You enter the island via its colonnaded drive, lined with palm trees, passing lakes with fountains, and elegant landscaping. It presents a visual grandeur for this platinum class gated vacation rental community.
Driving up the palm fringed entrance you approach the main security gate to the resort, ensuring your privacy and security.

After entering through the security gates you enter the circle and are dramatically welcomed by the playful dolphin fountain in front of the picturesque rotunda and see the clubhouse on the other side of the circle.
