Honeymoon Island State Park

Lay of the Land: A natural barrier island, this state park boasts four miles of sandy beaches, nature trails, and abundant wildlife. Don't be surprised to see an endangered gopher tortoise walking across your path or hear the call of an osprey---or the bark of Fido, who may explore the dog beach. The Pinellas Trail has a spur that runs the length of the Dunedin Causeway right to the park entrance. All pets are required to be on a six-foot handheld leash.

Little Known Facts: Honeymoon Island got its name from a Life Magazine contest for newlyweds in 1939; couples won a two-week honeymoon stay on the island. Photos of these love birds can be viewed at The Rotary Club Centennial Nature Center. In 2007 Honeymoon Island was Florida's most visited state park.

Why You Should Go: Beaches, nature and accessibility. In addition to being a great destination, it's also the launching point to Caladesi Island State Park America's #1 Beach for 2008. * Please note there is an admission fee. See the park's website for more details.

“Soft sand”

I've never felt sand so soft and squishy and I've been to a lot of beaches. The water was more like lake water but it was very nice and calm. I found a live conch that was very neat to see. Great for...
