Crew was friendly and helpful and offered helpful advice regarding equipment, where to snorkel for the best experience. Safety was the highest priority. We saw sharks, barracuda, a billion colorful various other fish and a huge goliath grouper that looked to be about 300 lbs. It was right next to me and looked like my head could fit in it's... More

We spent a day at Bahia Honda state park while we were visiting Key West. We lounged around on the beach for a short time and while the water was cool, the sun was bright and warm. We enjoyed sandwiches from the snack bar where we received friendly service and we rented kayaks from a very accommodating gentleman. The water... More

This is a great State Park that is very accessible, clean and well managed. I camped one night on the Bayside, site 78 maybe? Plenty of room for my tent and car, a little buggy (no-see-um's), and the crushed stone a little rough without a pad or mattress. The grounds offer something for everyone. Beach access, bridge access, food for... More

Natural beach as are most of the keys will not be combed by some form the raking equipment. Offers many different rentals and day trips to Looe key "reef" for snorkeling. Well worth the stop.

We stopped here on our last day in the Keys to lounge on the beach. The beaches aren't very deep, but they weren't crowded at all (we visited on a Monday) and the water was clear and calm. We had stopped at Anne's Beach a couple days before and weren't impressed with that one.

Till now the best beach I had been to was in Andaman islands in India, but the beautiful beach here surpasses that in ease of access, shallow waters, cleanliness etc. It's breathtaking - u have to see it to believe it!

Spending our day at Bahia Honda State Park was one of my favorite days while vacationing in Key Largo. Totally worth the hour trip!! The beaches were small but beautiful!! The water was so clear and the temperature was perfect. We went snorkeling on both the ocean and gulf side. We saw tons of beautiful fish, like the ones we... More

The Florida Keys do not have a great number of public beaches, and many are not the nice sandy beach you may be seeking. Bahia Honda has a little of everything to make it well worth going to. On the gulf side there is a very nice sandy beach with a great swimming area. You can even snorkel here and... More

It's a little beautiful beach. Yes, there is seaweed and it smells, but we have not been bothered by the smell on the beach itself. Water is clear blue and beach a bit narrow, can be overcrowded, but overall a good place.

We spent part of two days last week at Bahia Honda State Park. The beaches are gorgeous and picturesque. There's plenty of shade if you need to get out of the sun, and nice trails to the old bridge. I had pretty low expectations when we decided to eat lunch at the snack bar at the gift shop, but our... More
