Caladesi is only accessible via a ferry, which runs regularly from Honeymoon Island.
As for the directions, what the previous poster called "Dunedin Causeway" is actually Curlew Rd. The route is also pretty spot on, 10 to 75, then south to SR 56, actually. 56 will connect with 54, but it cuts out a little unecessary drive through a neighborhood/business area. Take 54 all the way out to US 19, turn right on Curlew Rd., then drive out as far as you can go. It'll dead end at Honeymoon Island. Park in the lot and take the ferry to Caladesi.
It's a beautiful area, the sand is like powder, and it's near the Clearwater Beach area for nighttime entertainment.
Not to nitpick but I will anyway.
It is Curlew Rd on the east side of Alt19 and Causeway Blvd or The Dunedin Causeway on the west side of Alt19.

My favorite spot in all of Tampa. Use to sail there on our Hobie Cat. Late Aug-Sept you can usually find sand dollars and other shells.

Not a lot of tourist so you can find a nice place on the beach without being right next to somebody.
