To start, if you are going by Kayak then you have a nice long paddle ahead of you depending on where you put in. Most people put in at the Causeway and brave the treacherous waters of Hurricane pass. Here you will dodge idiot boaters...More

This little beauty of an Island is a short ferry boat ride away from Honeymoon Beach and is totally worth it! The beach is nicer with clearer turquoise water than the surrounding beaches. I went there with friends for a day on vacation to swim...More

Should have spent the whole visit on the beach at Honeymoon Island State Park. Took the "ferry" over to Caladesi State Park on the recommendation by the lady in the ticket sales booth. The 20 minute boat ride was nice on a long pontoon boat....More
