We keep hearing how great this place is while in downtown Dunedin...

but just did not have the time to check it out. We met lots of folks who came in to town for either spring break, spring training or the Annual Scottish Highland Games. And all... read more

I cannot believe they are still charging people $8. The beach is filled with large rocks for some reason. Kids couldn't play without getting injured. Don't bother wasting a day until they they get the beach area cleaned up. That is unless you are here for hiking and site seeing. AVOID.

Beach is so eroded that it is only 8 to 10 feet wide. There are so many large rocks, it is hard to walk on They are working on expanding the beach, but the goal for the north end is late summer 2015. No funding for the south end.

Beach is covered with limestone rocks in areas apparently from an old construction site that dumped offshore. The park needs to put forth efforts to clean up the rocks that have come ashore and are just offshore. It's a beautiful park and beach, but becoming unusable due to the rocks.

but just did not have the time to check it out. We met lots of folks who came in to town for either spring break, spring training or the Annual Scottish Highland Games. And all said to check it out before you leave. So - we will head back and do so - off season. Meantime, we had so much... More

This was our first, and last, trip to honeymoon island beach. So crowded, and so hard to walk with all the rocks. The water isn't at all clear, other beaches in that area of Florida have bluer clearer water. I prefer to be able to spot jellyfish and get out of their way! Couldn't stroll down the beach, too hard... More

I had been told that this was one of the nicest beaches. That is why we picked Dunedn to stay so we could be close to a beach. I can't describe how disappointed we were. The was barely room to set up our chairs on the sand and the beach and water were full of rocks. It hurt your feet... More

Not sure what has happened here--for years this has been one of our favorite spots when visiting the Tampa area--I assume there must have been a rough storm, I had never seen it so rocky(uncomfortably so)--and also quite buggy, We were actually sharing our bug spray with nearby beach goers. We will definitely go back next visit, but will hope... More

My family and I went to the Pet Beach on Honeymoon Island. My Aunt told me the Pet Beach was usually less crowded. Weren't many dogs. It was a tad of a walk to get there. Water was warm. People were fishing. It was beautiful. $8 to get in if there are more than a certain amount of people in... More

Not you usual Florida beach. Very wild! Beautiful. Small numbers of people. All enjoying themselves. Lots of fisher people. Not many swimmers. Rocky I was told. Oasis Beach has great swings for two. Just what this old couple needed to enjoy their books. Little traffic, beautiful causeway drive, $8 admission. Free parking.

I've been living in Florida for a few months now, everyone speaks about Honeymoon Island. I went today and can't see what all the fuss is about. Clearwater beach is much better and 10 minutes away. When you drive into the park there are no signs clearly explaining where everything is. We drove around looking for a picnic spot, had... More
