Beautiful unspoiled beach inside nature preserve. Not for those who want the typical tourist experience. This is where the locals hang. Get there early and spend the day.

This state park is very nice to go to if you want to avoid major crowds. It's also can get pricing if you have a larger family especially if you want to take the ferry to Caledsi Island. However, if you stay on the park...More

We stayed in Orlando during the Thanksgiving holiday. We had a free day and drove over to Honeymoon Island State Park (only about an hour and 15 min drive). We chose this location because we read that it was a great place to collect seashells....More

What a fantastic find just south of Tampa. Great place to spend the day at a beautiful beach. Plenty to offer for families with restrooms, bath house, changing rooms and concession stands that not only sells food but also adult beverages. The state park charges...More

We took snack and water along with sturdy bags for the shells. Pay attention when the tide is out and you will find lots of neat shells.

Was a lovely beach, but there were little midge size insects which bit me quite a few times. There's a charge to go on the island. We ordered sunset beach further up the coast,.

If you are able, make the "hike" to the northern tip of Honeymoon. 2+ miles one-way. Its quiet, with few people. The water is clearer, the fishing is better and there are always manatees around if the water temp is in the 70's. Also, bull...More

This beach is so large, you should be able to find a secluded spot. As you are looking at the water, head to your right. Try to get there early. There is a private dog park beach furthest to your left.
