Caladesi Island State Park

Take a ferry from nearby Honeymoon Island to this barrier island with a three-mile beach rated the best in the nation by Dr. Beach. Wade, swim or fish in the warm blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico or just relax on your boat in the 108-slip marina. Enjoy a hike on the nature trail or paddle under a mangrove canopy on the kayak trail. There are no camping facilities on the island. The park is home to many species of birds and animals. Please take only photos and leave only footprints.
