Prepare to line up even with 3 booths taking the parking fee. Nice clean washrooms and a small concession booth. Mainly a family place although I saw 1 group of young men carrying in a case of beer. Music playing and many beach activities taking place. You can rent an umbrella and lounge chairs by the full or half day

The beach was a bit crowded by the parking lot, but just a short walk crowd thins out. Hiking trails to view wildlife. Good facilities. Nice for walk, or to spend all afternoon. Limited shade, so bring your own.

We went on a Wednesday afternoon. It wasn't very busy. We were able to find a parking spot close to one of the boardwalks out to the beach. We had no problem finding a spot to put out stuff down. Two people stayed while two of us walked the beach. The water was a little cold but not bad for... More

First of all, get there early, traffic was crazy when we were leaving, like two miles long trying to get in later in the day. Rented chairs and umbrellas, beach was busy, water was nice. Crazy Sunday. Did the nature trail with a free guide, it was by far the highlight of the day. Guide was very informative.

This beach was recommended over Clearwater because of spring break and it is closer to Tampa Bay. It was a great choice! We could rent lounge chairs and umbrellas and there are good facilities and food as well. The beach was nice and great for walking. Costs $8 to enter the park but there is a long expanse of sand...

We drove through Clearwater and saw the beach area during spring break, so we looked for something a little less congested. Honeymoon Island was a perfect alternative. The beach was not packed. Definitely bring an umbrella and sunscreen. The nature exhibit has good indoor displays, but the garden could use some work. There are warnings regarding rattlesnakes, but they were... More

My daughter, her family and I spent the morning at the beach. We arrived at the beach early morning, 8:45 AM. We were the only people on the beach, until an hour or so later. There are shells for the children to collect. The parking is extremely close to the beach, which is nice for older adults and families with... More

We had to come here on our honeymoon! Nice little state park with great beaches. We loved the fine powdery white sand! We visited the nature center and volunteer Bob was great! He gave us a very informative history of the island. Admission to the park is $8 per car (up to 8 people).

Had to pay $8 for my husband and I to drive into the park. Rocks are under water when you start to walk into the Gulf. Narrow beach. A lot of seaweed. Did find nice smaller shells. We had a nice picnic while at the park
