Local Beaches & Biking

Dunedin, the perfect beach town, is minutes away from *Honeymoon – Caladesi Island’s award-winning state park with unspoiled beaches and natural trails (5.5 miles north). An easy bike ride away at Dunedin’s Causeway beach, you can rent sailboats, kayaks, and paddleboards. Clearwater Beach, 6.1 miles south, is known for its sugar-white sand, beachfront dining, shopping, and entertainment. Both beaches have rated number one in the USA multiple times. You can drive, bike, take the water taxi from the marina, or ride the Jolley Trolley, whose stop is just steps away from the front of our front gate.
The Pinellas Trail, once part of the Orange Belt Railway, is now a 49-mile trail that connects Tarpon Springs to St. Pete for biking and hiking enthusiasts.
