Honeymoon Island offers about four miles of magnificent shoreline. Some of the beaches are designated for swimming while a stretch on the south end is completely pet-friendly. Along the north end, you’ll find a sand spit. Plus, the area is sprinkled with boardwalks, making it easy to navigate the coastline of the park.
Along with the beach, Honeymoon Island has paved trails that are perfect for walking and biking. In fact, you can even rent bicycles if you don’t have your own, making it both a convenient and fun destination for cycling enthusiasts who prefer not to haul their own bikes to the park.
You can also spend time kayaking on the beautiful water. Rentals are available, or you can bring your own, giving you an easy way to explore Pelican Cove, an area between a nature trail and the sand spit.
While you can always bring a picnic lunch with you, Honeymoon Island also has food, beverages, souvenirs, and beach items at the Park Concession. You can even rent beach chairs or umbrellas to enjoy a meal on the sand, or head to Café Honeymoon for a wonderful restaurant experience.
Anglers will also enjoy a trip to the park. Fishing is allowed (with the proper license) and you can bring in a variety of catches including trout, flounder, snapper, mackerel, and more.
If you want to make your visit educational, head over to the interpretive kiosks that dot the park. You can learn about the history of the area as well as details about the local flora and fauna that call Honeymoon Island home. Observation decks create additional opportunities, giving you an ideal perch for observing the various birds or taking in the local scenery.
When you take a trip to the dog beach at Honeymoon Park, your pooch must remain on a six-foot leash at all times. Additionally, make sure you are prepared to clean up after your dog so you can do your part to keep the area beautiful and enjoyable for everyone.
