Beautiful and wild! Great place to spend the day. Bring plenty of sun screen and shade devices like umbrellas. On calm days you can rent kayaks from a place on the causeway and day trip over to Caladesi and Honeymoon Island.

Over the years, I have enjoyed Caladesi island ! The Ferry boat is fun to ride and the price is right! I just wish we could stay on the island longer but I understand the reason why we can't!

We took the ferry over to Caladesi Island from Honeymoon Island. This beach was rated Top 10 in the US and I'm not sure why. We loved that it was somewhat remote and secluded from tons of people on the beach but we expected it...More
