"With miles of white sand beach, this island has 3 miles of trails worth exploring, especially if the weather is acting up and the boat ride to Caladesi looks too rough. The island contains more than 200 species of plants in its mangrove swamps, sea grass beds, salt marshes, tidal flats, and sand dunes. It also contains one of the few remaining virgin, uncut stands of South Florida slash pine.
Honeymoon Island has two connected loop trails that parallel each other. The Osprey Trail leads through one of the last remaining stands of south Florida virgin slash pine. Extending north from the Osprey Trail is the Pelican Cove Trail. Ideally, you will make this walk as a loop. Sometimes, however, the Pelican Cove Trail can be quite wet toward the end, and you may want to take one of the side trails that will take you east and back to the drier Osprey Trail."
