Honeymoon Island State Park

Of all the places I have visited in Florida, Honeymoon Island State Park is currently my favorite. Not only is the beach amazing, but you can also hike through the tropical landscape and see all sorts of different things.

The two-mile hike takes you on a loop throughout the island where you can see all different types of wildlife. Osprey (a huge bird) seem to be everywhere and there are also a few Bald Eagles in the park. And who would have thought the park is also home to a ton of armadillos.

Besides hiking, you can also spend time on the beach swimming, snorkeling, and shelling. Not a bad place to spend a day out in the sun.

      Hey, thanks for checking out my post. The pictures of the shells were taken on the northern beach. You can actually drive right on to the island without taking a ferry. Once on there, just keep driving north until you can’t go any further and there is a parking lot right by that beach. The souther section of the island has sandier beaches with not as many shells.

      If you’re staying at the Days Inn in Clearwater, it’s only like a 20 minute drive to the park.
