Honeymoon Island State Park

Honeymoon Island State Park

 Dunedin, Florida, United States/Honeymoon and neighboring Caladesi Island were originally part of a large barrier island that split in half during a major hurricane in 1921, this the name of the inlet near the South Beach, "Hurricane Pass".According to the Florida Park Service, Honeymoon Island was introduced to the American public in the early 1940s through newsreels and magazines. The advertisements promised undiscovered pleasures for newlyweds. According to the Dunedin Museum, located in Dunedin on the mainland which lays claim to both Honeymoon Island and Caladesi Island, Honeymoon Island was formerly known as Hog Island. In the early 1940s, honeymoon-type huts were built on the island for vacationing, and the name was changed. World War II began and the thatched huts fell into disuse. The structures were torn down as the island was turned into a state park. However, the name stuck. A causeway leading to the island was constructed in 1964.Today Honeymoon Island is a popular vacation destination, wedding venue, and a hanging for residence of the Tampa Bay Area.One of the island's services, that of a ferry to Caladesi Island, is only for convenience to those in the Honeymoon Island area to reach Caladesi Island across Hurricane Pass. Caladesi Island is easily accessible by walking from Clearwater Beach, Fla. as it has been for decades, and is only separated by a "welcome sign" from the south.
