The ferry ride is fun and we saw dolphins on the ride back. The beach is beautiful. Lots of shells. We ate lunch at the snack bar - great burgers! This was my second visit and will definitely return if I'm ever in the area again.

We stayed in our boat at the marina for two days and enjoyed it more than any other trip, so far. The marina is high quality and well maintained. There is a great concession and store with very good burgers. Bath houses are huge and very clean; no hot showere though. Few boaters were overnighters, so we had the beach... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the ferry trip to and from the island, as well as the small snack bar. It was a beautiful spot for walking and collecting shells. The marina area looked like it would've been great for kayaking if we had the time.

Caladesi Island can be reached by the Caladesi ferry or private boat. It is near to Honeymoon Island and was once occupied by a family whose daughter would canoe each day to school on the main land. The I SD land has very blue and clear water to swim in. Palmetto palms cover the island. The friends of the island... More

Worth all the effort. You can take a ferry that is fun in and of itself. The water is clear, and deep. Great shelling and I've always seen dolphins. There is a cafe that has great burgers and you can rent chairs/umbrellas.

If you are in town and a beach lover, Caladesi Island is a must see stop. The white sand beach on this island is incredible. You have to take a ferry over (or a boat) to get to the island. Its a short ride from Honeymoon Island.

To get to Caladesi Island you must drive to Honeymoon Island State Park ($8 entry fee and loads of parking available). Once there, you'll take a $14 roundtrip ferry to Caladesi. Feel free to bring a picnic basket, fishing pole, chairs, etc. When I went, the ferries ran every half hour but you should check the schedule. The ferry ride... More
