Discover Honeymoon Island State Park
This undeveloped 385-acre barrier island off Dunedin has four miles of sandy beaches, hiking trails and bird-watching opportunities along the Osprey Trail. Honeymoon Island State Park's trails are also home to ground-dwelling wildlife such as armadillos, gopher tortoises and raccoons. Upon arriving, visit the Rotary Centennial Nature Center to learn about the island and get ready to swim, hike, bike, kayak, or simply relax. There's even a popular dog beach.
Top Tip: Honeymoon Island can get pretty busy on weekends, but, even then, you can find your own space in the sand if you park at the northernmost parking area, cross over to the beach on the boardwalk, then walk north. Weekdays are a bit quieter.
