With 6 km (4 mi) of white sand beach along the Gulf of Mexico, Honeymoon Island State Park offers a wealth of opportunities for exploring Florida's barrier islands. Rich in biological diversity, the park is home to many rare and threatened Florida organisms like the slash pine, armadillo, and tortoise. As you wander the park's trails through mangrove forests and across tidal flats, keep your eyes out for ospreys and other coastal birds. Be sure to bring your swim trunks to enjoy the clear, warm, shallow waters. You can access the island's treasures via a causeway from the mainland; it provides visitors with a concession stand and gift shop.

Honeymoon Island State Park reviews
This is a great beach that seems to avoid the partying spring break crowd. Good parking and restrooms. Very pretty view of the water. Saw dolphins near the shore. $8 entry fee was an excellent value. more »
For $8 fee you get a great beach, close parking, changing rooms and bathrooms. Also a snack bar. Beach is awesome tho if you go to the western end, it can be rocky or with large rocks. Pet beach... more »
Great Florida State Park. It has a North, Oasis and a Main beach. All different beaches have their own restaurant and souvenir shops as well as restroom facilities. The main beach had the only pavilion with a grill. You can also find a beach dedicated to pets where our best friends can enjoy the ocean breeze. If you enjoy gardens, make sure you visit their small but beautiful outdoor garden. The main building in their Nature Center was closed to visitors during our visit. There are several beautiful trails, if you enjoy hiking, that run parallel to the ocean. You can also find a nice park with several pavilions with grills as well as restroom facilities and a children's playground. However, at the time of our visit, the playground was closed. This awesome park was enjoyed by everyone in our family, young as well as adults. We'll visit again. Overall, plan to spend about 4 hours in this park.
We really enjoyed going to this state park. We grabbed a quick lunch at the snack shop which had very reasonable prices. Only $8 to get in was very reasonable. We went to the north beach because we heard it was a good place for shelling and it was. There were tons of shells. There were quite a few people here but most were properly distancing. The only downside is that it was fairly rocky. In the main part if the beach it wasn't too bad, but as you ventured farther out it was pretty rocky.
