Pack a lunch and bring a lounge chair and stay all day in one of the best beaches in Florida, when you done swing through Dunedin and grab a bite and one of the great local restaurants.

We should have brought waders. ;)Pretty beach if you want to sit in a beach chair. But waaayyy too many rocks to get in and swim. The secondary beach "oasis" has a couple kiddo friendly wading areas. Its pretty and very well maintained so the nature part is awesome! Just not a great swimming beach.

Thoroughly enjoyed this extremely clean beach. Saw dolphins from the beach. It was a bit difficult getting in due to many rocks as you enter the beach...Strongly suggest wearing beach shoes.

People in general make it sound like heaven, but no really.. Goods Warm water with low gentle waves, for me that was the best of all Bads Be prepared to have water shoes to walk at the sand, because it has extremely lot of shells. You cannot easily find a sandy spot in the water, it has ton of stones,... More

Honeymoon Island is a GEM in disguise. Gorgeous tropical atmosphere. Nice beach although parts are somewhat rocky. A great place to take an evening stroll. We bought an annual pass as we go there often. Parts of the beach are dog friendly provided they're kept on a leash and further down you can let your dog run loose. Have never... More

The beach is rocky in many places and there are areas that are rocky when you enter the water, beach shoes are a must. The beach is eroding but they are working on trying to prevent it. There are pavilions to change in with bathrooms.There are showers as you enter the boardwalk to the beach. There is a cafe which... More

I'd never been here before my visit, so I was a bit surprised with how rocky the shore was. It made it a little uncomfortable laying out, so I suggest you bring a lawn chair to avoid the rocks. The scenery was beautiful. I would go back again.... as long as I have a chair! I don't want to say... More

A small fee is charged to enter the park, so worth while, take your pick of a dog beach or miles of white sugar sand or hike thru a nature trail with many interesting sights. All the usual amenities are here. This is where the "Punisher" filmed the Costa Rica scenes. This is also where you can board a ferry... More

We were very excited that there was a dog beach at Honeymoon Island Park. Unfortunately, our dogs weren't quite so excited. They love chasing balls in the water. But because dogs are required to be leased even in the water, they couldn't swim to fetch balls. If you're looking for a dog beach, head south to Fort DeSoto where no... More

I have adored this beach for, gosh, half my life. It is beautiful and so relaxing. By beautiful, every time of the day it's beautiful. In rain, in sun, it always has amazing views. Honey Moon is very clean and safe. (Not life guard safe.) The water is cold and smooth, always. There isn't too much need for the life... More
