The Keys are not known for their beaches, but they ARE known for beautiful water to swim in, and Bahia Honda has plenty of it. Unique to this beach is the ability to sit in water that is only a few inches deep, or a foot deep. The sand on the bottom is clean and comfortable. Bring your chair and... More

If visiting Florida Keys, it is mandatory to stop in the Park. The facilities are very good (restrooms, parking space, picnic tables, etc) and the beach is wonderfull and peacefull.

The water was beautiful, clear, and extremely shallow but that did not stop us from enjoying ourselves.The beach on the other hand was covered in seaweeds that washed up their were bugs all over and it reeked of rotten eggs. So we had to find rocks to set our bag and towel on.

Great place not to crowded. Water is beautiful. Water on bay side kind of limited space. Lots of grass. Ocean side huge.

Nice state park. Moderately crowded on a mid-week summer day. "Atlantic" side beach is very narrow, breezy, and lots of seaweed during our visit. Definitely worth visiting the gulf side beach also. It's sandier and protected from the wind (and hotter). Don't miss the views from the top of the old bridge near the gulf side beach.

Pros 1. Stunning Beach 2. Great for kids as there is little waves or currents and the water is fairly shallow 3. Showers, Toilets and Change rooms Cons 1. People - Whilst I was there, a group next to us left behind used cups and empty doritos packs in the water. Very disgusting to say the least. 2. A little... More

Best beach in the Keys. Park at Sandspur and walk as far east as you can for the most privacy. Great fishing off that point too. Snorkel or just relax at the west end, or take a walk to the old bridge for a great view of the water and the 7 mile bridge.

Stopped by on a Tuesday to check out the beaches and water. $10 to get in for a family of four. You have the gulf-side area and then the much larger ocean-side. The calm gulf-side was crowded so we opted for the ocean-side. Several locations to check out and not crowded at all. We all snorkeled out to 4-5 feet... More

Beautiful beach with clear waters. Take your snorkel gear and you can swim way out to take everything in. There are covered areas where you can have a picnic. Very laid back, not too busy. Perfect spot. Most of the beaches don't have sand on the keys because of the lack of waves, but this place has wonderful, soft sand... More

We loved the beach. It is a familiar spot. Perfect to be until sunset time. One of the beaches has tables and places to sit and eat. Snack bar has average things, you can also buy or rent snorkeling equipment there, not that expensive.
