An Island Escape – Caladesi Island

A state park, Caladesi Island is situated just south of the island of Honeymoon Island Recreation Area. Accessible only by ferry boat* from the marina at Honeymoon Island on the west end of Dunedin Causeway, it’s a wonderful way to spend the day with the kids. The island has a nature trail, two bathhouses and a picnic area. The west side of the island sits directly on the Gulf of Mexico. Here umbrella rentals are available. Favorite pastimes include soaking in the sun, playing on the beach and in the water, hiking to the north part of the island and shelling along the way.

*Yes, during low tide you can walk from the residential area of north Clearwater Beach but we highly recommend this water excursion.
