The Dunedin Causeway, located at 61 Causeway Blvd, is a 2.5-mile route that leads from Bayshore Boulevard (Alternate 19) directly to the entrance of Honeymoon Island State Park and is maintained through a cooperative agreement between Pinellas County and the City of Dunedin.

The Causeway is open for recreational activities from 5:00 am – 11:00 pm. The Causeway is lined on each side by water with vistas of St. Joseph Sound and plenty of free parking along the access areas that parallel the main roadway. It is a terrific destination for fishing, watercraft activities, and sunbathing. The area is also a popular venue for walking, jogging and bike riding as a spur of the Pinellas Trail runs along the entire length of the Causeway on the south-side of the road.

Alcohol, camping, and ground fires are not allowed on the Causeway.


Amenities, Concessions & Sailboat/Kayak Rentals

Restroom facilities and a concession operation are located on the western portion of the Causeway, just before the second bridge.

Sail Honeymoon, Inc. is the permitted concessionaire and offers a great selection of sailboat and kayak rentals as well as food and beverage sales at High & Dry Grill.

Boat / Watercraft Launch

The Dunedin Causeway is a popular location to launch a variety of watercraft including motorized boats, jet skis, wave runners, sailboats, and kayaks. Please note, there are no paved ramps. The southern facing area is divided into four separate sections. No boat launching is permitted on the north side of the Causeway, west of the drawbridge. See the following diagram:

  • Motorized boats (including jet skis) can launch from a beach entry 200’ area just west of the draw bridge (no boat ramp facilities).
  • No watercraft are permitted in the center of the Causeway between the motorized and non-motorized launch areas.
