This was my first time to this beach. I've been to a lot of beaches and this one comes close to the worst beaches I've been to. Can you say rocks...cuz that is all it is...rocks and more rocks. Just to amuse myself I built a small rock wall from rocks I pulled out of the water. Actually just trying... More

Beautiful beach with nice bath houses. Nature center well staffed and interesting. Many exhibits of interest and presentations well done. Gulf waters beautiful, but beach was almost too shallow to enjoy. Could walk 500 Meters before water over your waist. Went on 2 different days and the beach houses were conveniently located with good beverage choices. Felt the $8 access... More

Visiting from out of town and we were recommended here for shelling. We found a lot of shells and had a great hike. The Nature Center on the island had a great indoor scavenger hunt where the kids really learned about the area. Definitely on the must do list again.

This beach is nice, clean, and uncrowded. Perfect for an afternoon of shell picking or water play. Make sure to bring water shoes if you are going to go on the north end of the beach, there are lots of rocks and shells. Our favorite part is spending the afternoon collecting shells and finding rare ones! The parking cost is... More

This beach is covered with rocks. We checked out two of the three entrances to the beach within the state park, and left without unpacking. We have visited many beaches in FL, and can't think of one good reason why you would bother with having to walk over rocks to get to a FL beach. You can do so much... More

We love this beach, we go all the time. Good to snorkel and look for shells. The hole Island is something to see, it is a state park so the beach isn't made over. There are some rocks in the water and is best to wear water shoes when going in. We have been to all areas, if you like... More

This state park is amazing, you can walk to the point, play with crabs and basically have a secluded beach to yourselves on a weekday! Just a couple people reading books and enjoying the amazing view! We walked back then hit the sand bar saw some amazing wild life and fish while snorkeling in the clear water. My daughter swam...

Honeymoon Island's park is expansive and teeming with flora and fauna. The beach is also teeming with life-- tourists all squished in on top of each other. The actual beachfront is very narrow, unless you go chill with the dogs at the other end. Despite finding some nice seashells here , I preferred Caladesi Island's regulated, pristine beach.

Make sure you come equiped with water shoes!! In most places its pretty rocky. I wouldn't suggest laying out a blanket to lay down like some beaches, but a chair is perfect. Every beach has it's pros and cons. Its not as crowded as most beaches, you have to pay $8 per car load to get in so that probably... More

It's a nice beach getaway away from the crowds. The beach is a bit rocky in places but it's nature at it's best. You might even be lucky enough to spot a Gopher Tortoise grazing along the road.
