Before venturing out to this beach do a little research on the web. Various areas of the beach are being repaired, this affects the ability to reach some of the more accessible beaches. Take a few minutes to visit the visitors center to learn the history of the island. Park entrance is $8. Plenty of parking. There are various sides... More

At certain tide levels and certain times of year, this is a nice place. It's very scenic but if you are the type of person that wants a big sandy beach to lay out all day, keep driving south!! The beaches at this park are very rocky. If you go in the water, beach shoes are a must or you... More

We had read several reviews that this was one of the best beaches in the St. Pete area, but found out later we missed the gem. We visited the beaches off the south end of the island. There was a changing and shower area and a grill and we could rent chairs, umbrella, etc on site. The beach, however, had... More

Beautiful white sand and nice water. Didn't see as many sea shells as I used to. The cost of getting into the park is pricey, but worth it. Never seems to crowed because there are (3) different beach & parking areas. There are no other beaches as pretty as this to the north until you get to the panhandle of... More

But the beach is a little narrow and rocky. Its really worth the visit!!! Especially at sunset . I enjoyed it very much and the 8$ per car are reasonable.

Beautiful nature reserve. We came across 2 very large tortoises. We walked the nature trail. It was very beautiful despite the fact they had just completed some controlled fires to rid the area of invasive plant species. The playground was very nice too. I do recommend you bring bug spray, we got eaten alive by mosquitoes and nats. But otherwise... More

Several people have said they were disappointed with the island due to the beach erosion which has been a problem. I live in Dunedin and wanted to provide this link. http://www.tbo.com/pinellas-county/more-sand-coming-to-popular-honeymoon-island-20150617/. The beaches have been resanded and some t-groins have been put in the water to slow down future erosion. The island is lovely with nature trails and nesting Eagles.... More

Despite having to pay to enter, we prefer Honeymoon Island to the other nearby beaches because it's less congested. We usually have to walk a little ways to find beach due to erosion but the privacy makes it worthwhile. We've enjoyed fishing, swimming, sunning, et-al while here.

We renewed our vows here in July of 2015. The island is about 40 minutes from Clearwater. We went on a day that it had been raining heavy the entire week and was only dry for just a few hours! Overall I liked the park, but wasn't 100% what I expected! Great for pictures and an ok amount of scenery... More
