With close proximity to St. Joseph Sound and the lively downtown culture, Dunedin provides some of the best biking in all of Florida.
How To Get Outside In Dunedin
- Get out for a mid-day walk around Dunedin! Being able to walk almost everywhere in the downtown area gives our residents and visitors the ability to take in all of the culture, scenery, and local food and drink options.
- Paddle Boarding is one of our favorite ways to get outside and see Dunedin from a new perspective. If you’re looking to rent paddleboards in Dunedin, check out Sail Honeymoon. It’s located directly on the Dunedin Causeway, only a short paddle to Caladesi or Honeymoon Island.
- Boat rentals! With numerous marinas and boat rental options, the process of getting out on the water is fairly easy for anyone who wants to experience local Dunedin life. After getting out on the boat be sure to check out some islands in the St.Joesph Sound as well as barrier islands like, Three Rooker, and Anclote Key.
- In case it wasn't obvious, our favorite way to get out and explore Dunedin is biking. The downtown area is centered around the Pinellas Trail and ends right next to Edgewater Drive. Both of these areas offer beautiful stretches of biking with natural views of the water as well as undeveloped areas of land that are rare in Tampa Bay. Plus Kafe Racer is centrally located to some of the best beaches, trails, and parks in Dunedin.
Best Places To Bike Around Dunedin
The Pinellas Trail
As we mentioned above, the Pinellas Trail provides a beautiful route from Tarpon Springs, FL all the way to St. Petersburg. FL. After renting bikes at Kafe Racer, you can head out the backdoor right onto the trail and experience everything Dunedin (and the rest of Pinellas) has to offer!
