Two Florida State Parks in the Tampa Bay area, Honeymoon Beach and Caladisi Island, were within a few miles of our campsite in Dunedin. Both are well worth the time and minimal fees. The causeway to Honeymoon Beach has free beaches and free parking. The causeway is very popular with pickicners, jet skiers, fisherfolk, kayakers, waders and sunset tourists. There is an $8 per car fee to enter Honeymoon Island State Park with it's four miles of wonderful white sand beaches including a designated Pet Beach. Caladesi Island can be accessed by kayak or private boat. We bought tickets and took the 20 minute ferry ride across a dredged channel between Honeymoon and Caladesi. Caladesi is famed for great shelling on the north side of the island. We were totally content to wade in the St. Joseph Sound, read our books, people watch (one lady came showing off a live starfish that Wes suggested she return to the water) and enjoy the the sun.
Like all Florida state parks there is equal access to all facilities. Even on fairly remote Caledisi, the wide portal to the ferry, access to trails and a wide board walk ramping right down to the
beach mean total accessibility. We say people with strollers, walkers, canes, and wheelchairs enjoying this beautiful resource.
