Best Hiking Trails In Honeymoon Island State Park

This Florida state park offers nature lovers pristine seascapes. And the best way to start is by exploring the hiking trails. Well-marked routes, complete with information boards, bring you close to osprey nesting areas, beautiful beach views, and you may even catch a glimpse of the endangered gopher tortoise.

  • 1. Osprey Trail

    A well-regarded 2.2-mile loop trail, the Osprey Trail runs through one of the last remaining areas of slash pine. A nature lover's paradise, this route is ideal for spotting osprey, bald eagles, and great horned owls.

  • 2. Pelican Cove Trail

    This loop trail intercepts the Osprey Trail mentioned above, where the habitat transitions to beach sunflowers, cross vine, and cabbage palms. Take the time to do some birding and spot black skimmers or brown pelicans while visiting Honeymoon Island State Park. Both trails combined run approximately 2.5 miles.

  • 3. Beach Hike

    Honeymoon Island State Park features around 4 miles of sandy beaches, including an area ideal for collecting a variety of pretty seashells washed in by the Gulf of Mexico. Why not explore the shoreline before heading back to your Honeymoon Island State Park cabins nearby?
