DUNEDIN, Fla. — A short drive from Tampa, beautiful Honeymoon Island offers an escape from the bustle of city life.

One of the most beloved state parks in Florida, Honeymoon Island has more than four miles of beach to explore along with a 3-mile trail through one of the last remaining virgin slash pine forests.

Looking skyward, eagles, osprey and great horned owls can be seen, while ground animals include gopher tortoises, raccoons and armadillos.

A trip to the Rotary Centennial Nature Center helps educate visitors about the park’s history and natural resources. Find out how Honeymoon Island received its name!

Swimming, fishing, shelling, hiking and bicycling are all popular activities that make Honeymoon Island State Park an ideal getaway.

Admission is $8 per vehicle. Honeymoon Island State Park is located at 1 Causeway Blvd, Dunedin.
