OK, sounds like honeymoon island is the better one. I had a look at some of the pics on google earth and it truly looks like paradise. Is it just a deserted beach, or are there amenities there?

The main part of the beach has a cafe/gift shop,rest rooms, and you can rent umbrellas. There are more isolated areas of the beach that have swings and picnic tables along the shore. And then there is the dog beach, nature trails, the new nature center.
Along the causeway you can rent kayaks, parasail, fish.
It's like having paradise for your backyard.

Sounds excellent! What is the deal with dog beaches? I'm assuming dogs are not allowed on normal beaches, and they are on dog beaches, and there would be plenty dog waste cans?
We don't have any real sunbathing beaches in Scotland so it's not an issue, dogs go wherever they please because everyone is just out for a walk, not to be lying down relaxing.

Dogs are only allowed on designated beaches, and only some allow them off leash. They have bin posts with plastic bags to scoop-you supply the scooper-although some of the bags are shaped for hand scooping. They also have a hose area where you can give poochie a bath.

I've been to Ireland where the dogs also go wherever they please-by themselves of course. It was interesting to watch them stroll along-just like humans and never threatening. But you won't see that here in the US.
Dogs must be on a leash everywhere except for the dog parks/beaches where they are specifically allowed off leash.

Ah OK, it's probably just as well because I don't see my stupid Lab ever being well behaved enough to run off the leash without jumping up on every stranger then lying down with his lipstick out

Many dog beaches have a fenced off area so your dog can mingle w/other dogs and their owners but away from general sunbathers. Davis Island over in Tampa has a good one. Back to Dunedin which is where I had meant you could ride your bike to , whcih I still highly recommend .( no, not Clearwater Beach which is south than Dunedin and far to noisy and touristy for locals.) Of course if your a teen you would prefer Clearwater Beach.

We ended up in Dunedin and really like it.

What part of the country are you coming from? Can you describe the current place that you live in and what kind of area that you seek...? Where would work be?

Enjoyed your assessment, but your lack of data on Palm Harbor made us sound like some remote outpost lol.
