Stopped here on our way to Key West. $9 to get two adults in with a car. They have several locations you can swim either on the ocean side or in the protected bay. It was rough on the ocean side so we stayed in the bay. What a nice relaxing day floating in the bay with a few of... More

Snorkeling was fine, except for a few moon jellyfish. Reef was nice with a wide variety of fish, and even a reef black tip shark! The state park boat appeared safe and clean. Only problem was the captains lack of consideration for the folks dying of heat in the sun...he rambled on for his pre-trip safety lecture! He should have... More

This is the prettiest state park beach I have been to. It truly looks like the Caribbean with white sand and clear waters. Beach is narrow but you spend most time out in the water anyway. Nice facilities there with kayak rentals, snack bar, ...

Along with beautiful beaches, the main attraction is the scenic and historic Bahia Honda Rail Bridge. The water is calmer on the bay side where you can see both the RR bridge and the new US1 bridge. We spent the afternoon snorkeling and enjoying the beach on our way traveling down from Islamorada to Key West. Be sure to have... More

Bahia Honda State Park is beautiful with great ocean views. We camped at the Buttonwood Campground. Nice sites, although some are a little small. They have water/electricity, but no sewer hook-ups. However, there is a dump site and a nice bath house that has hot showers and several toilets. To book a campsite you must go out about 11 months... More

We visited Bahia on a whim while in Key West and had a wonderful time. The park is small but very nice. Although there is quite a bit of sea weed type debris on the beach it is defiantly soft and sandy in areas as well, and not they rocky type environment you find down in Key West. The water... More

The beach itself is smaller than I expected but what a beautiful place! Even with some rain showers today we enjoyed our time here. Definitely worth visiting!

Very nice State Park, clean and well cared for. Good snorkeling and nice beaches on ocean and gulf. Nice nature center and marina as well. Great sites on the water. Clean bathrooms, and nice size camping sites.

Wow, this is by far the best beach in the keys. We loved to be able to enjoy swimming as well as snorkeling. We found two beaches and would go to either one, again. Nice bathrooms and place to change.

small beaches, not over crowded in September. Snorkling from the atlantic side off the beach was warm but not many fish. the beach on the gulf side was quiet but relaxing. All the rest rooms i visited were clean and seemed well maintained the fresh water showers worked well. Had a burger at the concession/gift shop, good value and tasty
