Ok, the place was beautiful but it wasn't the beach for us. We read reviews and knew it would be rocky, but didn't expect it to be so bad. I even went for the rocks! I love to collect rocks more than shells. My son cut his toes up and my daughter actually fell in the rocks and cut her... More

It's a great little beach and I visited on a weekday in October where there were minimal folks on the beach. Lots of shells and supposed to be able to find shark teeth but I was not so lucky. I guess depending on the tide detirmines what I say next. The entry into the water is very rocky. And I... More

The water closest 2 the beach is also full of rocks and shells--U can NOT walk barefoot!!! It is hard NOT 2 twist your ankle, or... More

We tend to avoid the crowds so weekends and holidays are out for us. Far end us under beach rebuilding construction? Guessing from the crane and pile of large rocks. Lots of parking. Stopped in at the Nature Center for the first time and was very pleasantly surprised. Staff was friendly and eager to share their knowledge. Have a camera... More

The nature center had a fun scavenger hunt for kids and the volunteers were very friendly and willing to answer all our questions. I've never seen so many seashells on a beach. We had a wonderful time at this park. Ospreys are everywhere in the area. Great location to go birding!

A short drive from Treasure Island. $8 to park-not bad fro a wonderful state park. If you love to walk the beach and feel the surf at your feet this is a great spot. Miles of beach. There is a snack bar on the beach with clean restroom facilities.

If you're looking for a laidback relaxing beach in central Florida, this is the one to choose. It isn't crowded because most people go to the touristy Clearwater beach.

Looking for a beach not to crowded and with calm waters along with walking trails and fishing. This is a nice place to just get away from the crowds. There are bathrooms, food, picnic shelters, playgrounds and showers. Along with biking. This is also where you would catch the ferry to go to Caladesi Island. It is $4.00 for one... More

This state beach has something for everyone, lovely beaches, fishing, sunbathing with rental umbrellas and chairs, gorgeous nature hikes with resident eagles nesting, bird watching, playground and group picnic site, a couple cafes, good bathhouses, shelling and a dog specific area. Some of the beaches in the park have rocks in the sand so you might want wading shoes. Not... More

Great day at the beach! I enjoy coming to Honeymoon Island cause it's really peaceful, not overly crowded, and clean. There is a 4.00 entrance fee, but it's well worth it. The island has a dog park and you can catch a ferry to nearby Caladesi Island, which I haven't been to, but I have heard its worth the trip.... More
