I've been facinated with Palmyra ever since I read the book "The Sea Will Tell" by Vincent Bugliosi, but I haven't run acrossed anyone who's actually sailed there. I know it's now owned by the Nature Conservancy, so but supposedly they still allow stops from private vessels.

Is it worth visiting? Any personal experiences with Palmyra?
There's some info at Noonsite. (www.noonsite.com) Just do a search for Palmyra.

cheers
