Activities along the shore at Honeymoon

There are approximately four miles of beaches to be enjoyed at Honeymoon Island State Park. A favorite spot for pet owners is the southern portion of beach which contains the park’s Pet Beach. Here your pet can enjoy a dip in the clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Your pet must stay on a six- foot hand-held leash at all times while in the park and we do ask that you clean-up after your pet.

The beach also offers excellent fishing. Anglers regularly catch spotted sea trout, mackerel, snook and many other species of saltwater game fish. The shelling at Honeymoon Island is exceptional and many visitors spend their day at the beach hunched over looking for that elusive treasure.

Shelling at Honeymoon

Although frequented by over one million visitors each year, the more energetic can find some peace and solitude by walking the two and a half mile sand spit. Park at the northern most parking lot, hit the beach and head north. The sand spit has grown during the past forty years from a few sand bars to over two miles of the most pristine beach you can find anywhere in Florida.
