Although Honeymoon Island is close to the Tampa & Clearwater metropolitan areas, it is located just a bit off the beaten track northeast of Dunedin. This slightly remote status allows the park to maintain much of the Old Florida natural character, attracting more than 700,000 visitors annually.
Those exploring the island will find the Honeymoon Island State Park offers ample amenities and parking along with food, drink, nature center and observation deck. There are also trails in abundance for the naturalist adventure along the mangrove and pine forest ecosystems.
Canoeists and kayakers can explore the mangroves and intra-coastal waters for a true taste of this Sun Coast Florida treasure. Visitors to this state park who bring their own transportation often take the opportunity to visit Caladesi Island which is located just offshore and only reachable by boat.
Beachcombers will find numerous shells along the shoreline (often still inhabited by their current resident). Care should be taken to avoid collecting live shells along these Florida shores.
