For an eight dollar admission fee, one can spend a day at the beach, fish, or walk the nature trails. We like to walk out to the northern end of the beach where it is sandy and there are fewer people. It is quiet out...More

This state park is a nice spot to go to avoid the big crowds of Clearwater Beach. We found that the water was a little nicer and the sand was pretty good. Other than the guys on the boat that thought it would be a...More

This is a beautiful state park with four beaches. There is a dog beach which we didn't check out because we didn't bring our dog. We did check out North Beach which is beautiful. This is supposedly the best beach for gathering shells. As of...More

We have just moved to Tampa and one of the first things we purchased was family membership to Florida State Parks. Entrance to Honeymoon island is normally $8 per car and we come here a lot so it was worth the membership cost. The beaches...More

This is a lovely park filled with nature. Please drive cautiously as turtles are meandering all about the roads. The beach was beautiful although it's very rocky to get in the water. Once in, it becomes sandy and stays shallow quite awhile and then a...More

We live near Holmes Beach, Coquina Beach, and Bradenton Beach. All have their good aspects; some better than others. My main complaint re Honeymoon is access getting into water. As you get near the water's edge the sand turns to gravel. Once ankle deep there...More

This is my home away from home in Dunedin! If I'm not home I'll see you on the unspoiled beaches of the island. Peaceful and quiet during the beach but very busy on weekends. Great for shelling at lower tides. The Nature Center provides great...More

Love Honeymoon Island. Not too crowded. The guys that set up the Umbrellas and chairs are friendly and attentive. Great for family fun. Clean restrooms. Not too far if a walk from the car.

It is $8 per car load to enter the park. I did not see any umbrella rentals - we brought our own. (There may have been umbrellas, we did not see them though). Honeymoon Island is lovely. In addition to the beach, we also... More

Yes, but suggest on the north shore only. Can get closer and not that many swimmers. Watch out for sandbars..
