We paid our $8.00 admission fee and went to the beach at the furtest end of the park. We started walking the beach and wondered if we were at a beach or a rock quarry. It was impossible to walk near the waters edge because there was no sand, just big rocks and stones. We walked the parking lot to... More

This little island offers it all. There were lots of great shells to collect on the North side of the Island. The nature trail was fantastic with osprey, great horned owl, and bald eagles. We also saw gopher tortoises and armadillos. The swimming beach was small, but clean and family oriented. There was also a separate beach for dogs to... More

However, we came back on March 3 and we were disappointed. There was so many rocks and not enough of that beautiful white sand. If we had known ahead of time we wouldn't have come back

So glad I live near this great beach - it has a lot to offer! Of course there's a beach. Right now it's a bit rocky, but I heard that there will be "new" sand in April. The best area now is "dog beach" if you want to spread out. Nice facilities, plenty of parking, snack bars, and wooden swings... More

My sister just had orthoscopic back surgery and part of healing is to walk. This place was suggested to us as it has nature trails. Lots of birds (horned owls, woodpeckers, etc) to see and about the 3/4 mile or so are the eagles. Very cool to see. But on the way back, it was a little much on my... More

Especially if you enjoy shelling. Worth the walk around to find lots of shells, altho limited in "specie." Beautiful spot off the coastline of Dunedin. Costs $8/car. We didn't go on the ferry to Caladesi Island because we didn't want to spend $14/each to get there when there was good shelling at Honeymoon. Folks there very nice. Great buildings for... More

We visited the park on a day with rain, rain and more rain. Not many people visited that day so we had a great chance to speak with the volunteers at the visitor center. Great group of volunteers and very helpful and friendly. They pointed out a few more places to see birds nearby that we would not find in... More

I took my dog to the dog beach on Honeymoon island in February 2015. The beach was wonderful for collecting shells and sponges. The views to caladesi island are amazing. The water is clear and calm and the beach has clean sand. The only thing I did not enjoy was that you must keep your dog on a leash.

Very well kept beautiful beach area. Took a bit to find a clear larger sandy area, but we did. There are a number of lots and beaches. We did not go to the north (tip) beach and we will do so next time. We would go back. Water was a bit too cold to swim (Feb). $8 to enter park.

Just across the Dunedin Causeway is this gem of a state park. However, if you are a birder don't miss pulling off the entry to the causeway to check out the shoreline birds. The entry to the park is straight ahead after the condo towers. $8 entry fee per car with 2 occupants. Be sure to stop in at the... More
