Located off Florida’s Gulf Coast, west of the town of Dunedin and near the city of Clearwater, Caladesi Island and the state park are famed for their unspoiled beach and has been voted among the nation’s top beaches. On pristine Caladesi, quiet paths lead along the dunes, palms stand against the warm coastal breezes, and shore birds and sea turtles live without interference from people.







The Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce 
is proud to partner with the
Caladesi Discovery Center project

The Caladesi Discovery Center will be an open air observation deck at a height of approximately 25 feet above ground level will provide visitors a panoramic view of this undeveloped barrier island.
