Located 3 miles offshore in the Gulf of Mexico, Caladesi Island is one of Florida’s largest undeveloped barrier islands. Its magnificent beach has been included on the list of America’s Best Beaches six times since 2002, finally ranking as number 1 in the entire nation in 2008. So you know the sands here will be extra fine. Caladesi Island can be reached only by boat, which makes it one of the state’s most remote hiking sites. Fortunately, you don’t need your own craft to reach it. A scheduled ferry runs frequently from nearby Honeymoon Island State Recreation Area. Those who do have their own boats can overnight at the island’s 108-slip marina or anchor offshore.
