What a fantastic island. The beautiful beaches and crystal clear water was perfect. It's a short boat ride from Honeymoon state park which costs $14 per person. It's worth the money. The island has shower stations, restrooms, and a snack bar that serves burgers, dogs,...More

This is a lovely park- rented a kayak and took off across the bay. Met a dolphin who” escorted me” around the more shallow areas. Really beautiful.

This state park is a beautiful, natural beach that feels quite isolated considering its proximity to Clearwater Beach. We docked for 2 nights at the marina. With just a few other boats, the beach late afternoon was particularly quiet after the last ferry (& thunder...More
