Honeymoon Island State Park
A typical Gulf Coast barrier island with white sand beaches on the gulf side and mangrove swamps on the bay side. One of the few remaining south Florida virgin slash pine stands along the island's northern loop trail and seagrass beds, salt marshes, tidal flats, sand dunes, over 208 species of plants, and a variety of shore birds are also on site.
if you are looking to take a romantic walk on the beach or you just want to get away by yourself and listen to the therapeutic sounds of the birds and the waves washing ashore, this place is just right for you. But first let me tell you that address on here is wrong it should be:
1 Causeway Blvd.
DUNEDIN, Florida 34698
It's not actually in Clearwater but just a few miles (5 to be exact) north of Clearwater. I went there during the week and the first thing that I noticed was how quiet it was (a stark contrast from Clearwater Beach - which was teaming with people). It was February so the water was too cold to get in (well for me anyway). I would recommend a stop here and check it out.
It was the first time I had been to Florida. It's quite different from the beaches in CA. I thought it was so beautiful with the white sand. Only a few people there. It was lovely walking thru the water. I miss it already!
beautiful beaches, clean, as well as restrooms. Loved the pet beach and since park closes at sunset, times do vary throughout the year. Excellent trail, pine flatwoods and wildlife viewing opportunities. Love the history and the nature center too!!
This was an aweswome state park. The beach was clean, there were very few people crowding the beach and the atmosphere was very natural. My kids got to pick up shells and jump in the water and run around and have fun. The price to get on the island was very reasonable too...I think it was around $5. The only think I would like to see is maybe an enclosed shower so you can clean up on your way out...
Having been to several beaches on both coasts of Florida, in the Bahahas, Haiti, the Domincan Republic, the Grand Caymans, Jamaica, Mexico, Costa Rica, Aruba, St. Thomas, St. Martin, Puerto Rico and others, I still find that Honeymoon Island is defintely in the top ten for atmosphere and cleanliness especially. It is worth it to pay admission for the spotless way this beach is kept. The sand is sugar white, no trash in site, no broken glass or old beer cans, beautiful views, translucent blue water, what more could you ask for?
This was my favorite beach to visit when I lived in St. Pete.
Someone else complained about rocks on the beach. Rocks are primarily on the beaches farther from the entrance. This beautiful beach has great sand, little or no trash, does not get overcrowded and the small cafe even serves pancakes for breakfast on either Sat or Sun (maybe both, I can't remember.) You have to pay, but you get a cleaner, less crowded beach and the fee keeps away the bag ladies, drunks, boom box playing partiers and other sometimes unpleasant types you run into on popular beaches. If you want a quiet family beach in the area this is the one. Take the ferry to the island for an even quieter beach. If you are willing to walk a bit, you can basically have the beach to yourself on Caladesi Island.
This beach is great! I have 2 small children and they loved Honeymoon Island much better than Clearwater Beach. This is my "happy place" The bathrooms were clean, the beach was not overcrowded, everything was pristine. It was so relaxing we could have floated away to Mexico, can't wait to go back!
