A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Pete Krulder

Honeymoon Island is the perfect place to go when looking for outdoor recreational entertainment! The South Beach Pavilion provides bicycles to rent by the hour or day and kayaks are available at Café Honeymoon. Both facilities offer beach chair and umbrella rentals for nominal fees and their decks are known for having great views of the gulf. Of course, there’s always plenty of space for just soaking up the sun on the beach! Heading out to the nature trails will give you ample opportunities to run into the inhabitants of the island. While Osprey are the norm, keep an eye out for the gopher tortoise crossing your path, the armadillo foraging for food, or the raccoon scurrying off into the woods. Please remember the essentials when exploring the outdoors – sun protection, hydration, and bug spray.
