Honeymoon Island State Park

Romantic and unspoiled beach

Honeymoon Island is just off the coast of Dunedin, Florida, across the Dunedin Causeway. Back in the day, it was called Hog Island but was renamed Honeymoon Island in 1939 for honeymoon bungalows that were once built there. Visitors can come for the day and swim, fish, or snorkel in the warm waters or enjoy a picnic on the beach. Showers are available along with two cafes and stores where you can enjoy simple, freshly prepared beach fare and stock up on beach essentials. You can also rent beach chairs, umbrellas and kayaks through the store.

Honeymoon Island is famous for beach weddings and parties. The Bon Appetit Group, a local Dunedin restaurateur in business for 40 years, operates the cafes and stores and beach rentals. They also provide wedding planning and beach party services and catering. They are the only licensed caterer for Honeymoon Island and have a stellar track record for creating memorable weddings, receptions and events.

My wife and I recently got married on Honeymoon Island. We were actually the fortunate ones to get married right after Hurricane Irma hit. I say fortunate because we couldn't have asked for a better group of people to pull off the most beautiful wedding we could have asked for.

The island itself had no power until 24 hours before the ceremony. All week we were in communication with Tina, and she was amazing in every way. She worked out every single detail, and went above and beyond what we expected of her. Tina was determined to make our day special no matter what. She even had a plan B already in place just in case things didn't go our way. The tears of disappointment that our day wouldn't go as we wanted, were turned into tears of joy just a short 24 hours before. The entire staff worked so hard to get the beach ready for us. They pulled off what we thought was impossible!!

Thank you so much to Tina, Darren, Tim, and the amazing staff for making our wedding day perfect!!
