Holmes Beach

Holmes Beach, FL, United States
13 Kudos
Holmes Beach is a great area for family getaways. From our rental home, we were walking distance to the beach, and many restaurants. There was also plenty of little shops nearby.
Most people rent a golf cart for transportation around the island, which we did for part of our trip as well.
We rented a house from amilocals, which was a great location with a rooftop deck and a private pool with water slide.
Our rental was on Holmes Boulevard but they have many similar rentals all over the island, a lot of which are suitable for large groups which is great for family getaways.
The beaches on the island are gorgeous, calm, and showcase great sunsets. We went in Mid October and the weather was in the 80s, and the water temperature was absolutely perfect. I will add some reccomendations to the detail section.

Beautiful beach with great views of the sunset at night


The Donut Experiment
Very unique donut shop. The donuts are made to order and customized. You start with a vanilla cake coconut, and choose your own flavor icing, topping, and “drizzle”.
Small Town Creamery
This place has awesome ice cream and fudge. I especially loved the toasted coconut ice cream.
Skinny's Place
Advertised as the best burgers on the island, and I would tend to agree! Great little bar/burger joint. Keep in mind it is cash only. They have an atm on site though.
Hurricane Hanks
Small restaurant with a bar. Affordable prices and delicious fish and chips. They also have really good house made ranch!
